Newsletter #74: March 2-9

Another week has come and gone! Baseball and softball have started for our kids, so we know Spring is almost here!

If you are looking for a fun outing this weekend, consider going to Marietta High School’s production of the musical Anastasia! Every spring musical is amazing, so if you go, you are in for a real treat! Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at the Athletic page or at the door. Shout out to my little cousin, Olivia, she plays the Dowager Empress in the play!

Pure maple syrup is the first harvest of the year in Ohio and West Virginia. Starting in February, maple trees all around get tapped for their delicious, sweet sap. This lasts through April. The sap starts flowing this time of year, because the daytime temperature is above freezing, but most nights are below freezing. I didn’t know that maple syrup tastes differently based on the location. Maple syrup in Southeast Ohio will not taste the same as maple syrup in Northern Ohio or Central West Virginia. There are 12 maple producing states, and Ohio is ranked 5th in production. It produces 100,000 gallons of maple syrup each year. The sugar maple is the official tree of West Virginia, and they say that West Virginia has more sugar maples than Vermont, although Vermont is the #1 producer of maple syrup in the U.S.

Maple syrup comes in four different grades: Grade A →Golden Color, Grade A→ Medium Amber Color, Grade A →Dark Color, and Grade A →Very Dark Color. The golden syrup has the most delicate flavor and is typically the first syrup that comes out of a tree. The darker the color means the flavor is stronger. Want the healthiest maple syrup? Grade A Dark and Very Dark has the most minerals and up to 300% more antioxidants than light.

There are three craft classes scheduled for this Spring! Please take a moment to scroll to the bottom of the newsletter for a complete description of each! I have also added pictures of the crafts below!

Here’s our update for the Putnam Street location…..

We are open on Saturdays from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. We would love to see you for breakfast or lunch!

We are glad so many of you are taking advantage of our lunch delivery option. Sometimes it can be hard to leave work to go and pick up lunch! If you haven’t tried this option, it’s very handy!

Our bakery is taking orders for some delicious special treats for Easter! A complete description is down below!

Here’s our outside update at the main farm market….

Aren’t you glad to know that March is finally here? Looks like it’s coming in like a lamb….let’s hope it stays that way!

It won’t be long before we start making our first greenhouse orders for the Spring! The spring flower season is the highlight of our Farm Market, and nothing looks any better than bright, colorful flowers to spruce up the outside!

Doesn’t gardening just make you feel happy? There have been many studies done that say that is really true! When you get outside and garden, not only are you getting your daily dose of vitamin D from the sun (remember you need 20 minutes of sunshine a day), but a certain bacteria in the soil causes your brain to release dopamine and serotonin. Both of these chemicals are responsible for making you feel calm, relaxed, and happy! So, according to researchers, your best bet to get all the benefits of gardening is to take your gloves off, get your hands dirty, and enjoy the that soft, cool dirt!

Here is the update for inside the market this week…..

This is our popular soup menu for next week:

Monday: Chicken Noodle and Bean Soup with Ham

Tuesday: Creamy Potato, Taco Soup

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper and Minestrone

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Grandma’s Tomato Soup

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Vegetable Soup

We are now taking orders for from scratch carrot cakes, coconut bunny cakes, chocolate He is Risen tomb cakes, and fresh strawberry pies for your Easter weekend! One or all of these would be the perfect addition to your delicious Easter dinner!

In the meantime, you can find slices of our from scratch carrot cakes, in the deli case. It tastes delicious!

Now that it is March, it is time for corned beef and cabbage. If you are looking for corned beef, just ask and we will get it from the cooler to slice. Grab a jar of Amish wedding, or Walnut Creek sauerkraut or the individual packets of sauerkraut that are on top of our deli case. The individual packets are perfect for those of you who have families that don’t like sauerkraut.

We also have big heads of fresh cabbage in our produce area! We also have some beautiful different types of potatoes. What a perfect meal….fry up some potatoes with some shredded cabbage and add some Troyer’s sausage or Bahama Mamas with it. We can eat like the Irish all month!

Have you ever thought of taking home a big pot of our from scratch soup home for dinner? You would have to give us a day’s notice, but we could make you a steaming pot of any of our from scratch soups, just think… Dinner could be done with a quick trip inside to pick it up along with a loaf of sourdough or Italian bread that has been fresh baked in the morning!

Jim has been working on mini fry pies made from scratch at Huck’s! He’s been having everyone sample them, and hopefully they will be ready to have out on the floor in the next week or two!

Yesterday was National Candle Day, so be sure to stop in to Huck’s this weekend to pick up your favorite scent from Duck Creek, Candle, Co.’s and give your house a warm, cozy scent!

You need to see the variety of stationary products available to you at Huck’s from Forever Caroline. These one of a kind items have artwork by Appalachian artists, one who loves right in Marietta! There are notepads, love notes, cards, and canvas bags. They feature landscapes, nature, and farm life. We love having these in a cupboard by the front door!

Sew Cute Scrunchies has dropped off some more hair scrunchies! These are perfect for all girls of any age. So cute!

We are so proud to be selling Florence Creamery milks and cheese curds. This cream top milk is fresh, and you can really tell that it is locally produced. In fact, this milk is all that my family will drink now! And I mean it when I say that we go through a lot of it every week!

We have the freshest meats around! Between the deli and our local farmers, we can keep you stocked up in the meat department! We have farm raised meat from Zimmerview Farm, Peck’s Farm , and Cornerstone Homestead! Wonderful products and wonderful people!

Huck’s can do all sorts of custom made meat, cheese, veggie, fruit, cookie, and sandwich trays. These are perfect for meetings, parties, get togethers, reunions, funerals, etc. You can call us at 740-374-2484, message us on Facebook, email us at hucksfarmmarket@gmail.com, or send us a fax at 740-373-0024.

Newsletter #73: Feb. 24- Mar. 1

Hello, everyone! There’s only one more week to go in February, and then we will be into March! Today is going to be a chilly one, but it looks like the rest of the week will be in the 50s and one day in the 60s next week. Maybe winter weather is behind us for good….only time will tell!

Leap Year is on Thursday! Historically, Irish monks passed a law in 1288 that Leap Year would be the only day when it was acceptable for a woman to propose marriage to a suitor. Women were tired of men taking too long to pop the question. If a woman proposed on Leap Year to a suitor, he must say yes or he was fined as much as 12 gloves or enough silk to make a new dress.

Both locations will have the latest edition of Marietta High School’s newspaper The Original this week. The students really do a great job of highlighting what is going on around the school, as well as national news. Please pick up a free copy, plus, two of our very own employees…Izzy Becker and Cam Goeller both write for the school newspaper.

Here’s the update for the outside of the market….

Spring is almost here! We are down to less than a month! It’s now to really start planning our gardens and what we want to do this year.

One of my very favorite vegetables to roast is asparagus! I like to just use a little olive oil, sea salt, and course black pepper. MMMM! Asparagus is an easy perennial to grow and can give you delicious stalks for up to 30 years. It comes in three colors…..white, purple, and green. White is very rare, and mainly found in northern Europe. White asparagus is actually just green asparagus that does not have enough light, so it can’t produce chlorophyll, so it does not change to green. It has a nuttier, milder flavor than the traditional green. Now, purple asparagus is its own variety, but is planted and harvested the same was as the green. The purple means it is full of antioxidants which are so good for us! The main thing to know about planting asparagus……you must be patient! You cannot harvest any until the third year.

Here’s the update for inside the market…..

Guess what’s back!! Julie’s Spicy Ketchup and Julie’s Spicy Mustard is back at the market!

In honor of today being National Tortilla Chip Day, stop by Huck’s for a delicious variety of tortilla chips as well as lots of different types of salsas! Walnut Creek has yellow corn and white corn tortilla chips. Conn’s sells yellow corn tortilla chips as well. As far as salsas go, do you like sweet, traditional or spicy? We have Old Fashioned Peach Salsa, Corn Salsa, Hot Salsa, and Medium Salsa from Amish Wedding. We carry Cherry Salsa, Pineapple Salsa, Peach Salsa, Chunky Hot Salsa, and Chunky Mild Salsa from Walnut Creek. We also carry Jose Madrid’s line of salsa which includes: Garden Cilantro Salsa Mild, Peach Mild, Spanish Verde XX Hot, Hot, and Pineapple Hot. I think I know what we will all be snacking on this week!

Looking for a delicious way to use Walnut Creek Hot Pepper Jelly? Poor it over a block of Walnut Creek cream cheese and pair it with some cut up veggies, crackers, or pretzels! Yum!

This week is also National Chocolate Covered Nut Day (Sunday) and National Strawberry Day (Tuesday)! Stop in for some Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds, Strawberry ice cream, Strawberry milk from Florence Creamery, or my favorite….strawberries!

Newsletter #72: Feb. 17-23

Hello, everyone! I hope you have had a nice week! It sure flew by! I enjoyed the chocolate covered strawberries, and we hope that you did as well! Yum!

Monday is Presiden’t Day! When I was in college at Mount Union University in Alliance, Ohio, I got to take a field trip to the National First Ladies Library and Museum in Canton. What a neat place! If you ever have a free afternoon, it is well worth your while! Over 50 women have been First Ladies of the United States. Not all First Ladies have been spouses. The 15th president, James Buchanan, was a lifelong bachelor. His niece was his First Lady. Grover Cleveland’s sister, Rose, served as his First Lady until he got married at the White House to his new bride, Frances. She was only 21 (he was 49) when they married. Although Ohio is known as the birthplace of the presidents, New York wins that prize when it comes to the First Ladies. There have been 11 First Ladies from New York including: Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy O’Nassis, Nancy Reagan, and Barbara Bush.

Inside Putnam Street has been a busy place!

CLOSED on President’s Day at Putnam Street only! But no worries….you can still visit us at 412 Muskingum Drive to get the freshest sandwich or sub around!

For our new readers….did you know that Huck’s Farm Market was voted Best Sub, Best Deli, and Best Sandwich in the Marietta Times Reader’s Choice Awards in 2023? We were also runner up for Best Lunch, Best Farmer’s Market, and Best Produce. We are so appreciative of these awards! We work very hard to make sure our sandwiches have the freshest breads, finest meats, and cheeses, and the best toppings and condiments. They are literally hundreds of combinations, so you can stick with your favorite or try something new!

A new craft class is being planned for Friday, March 22! Check out below and get signed up! It will be fun!

Duck Creek Candle Co. has added candles to our Putnam Street location! These soy candles burn cleanly and have a wonderful smell! They are reasonably priced and have a variety of scents! There are florals, foods, and cozy scents. I love them all! They come in two different sizes, and they also have wax melts and air fresheners for your car!

Here’s our update for the outside of the market!

Our spring countdown is getting closer! Only 34 more days!

Ever thought of making your own potting soil? Self.com says that it’s easier than you think….I like easy, so this sounds great! They say to start with 1/3 sand, 1/3 top soil, and 1/3 compost. Compost is amazing! It can help promote healthy plants, conserve water, and it’s great for the environment!

Composting is easier than you may think. You can compost in a pile or in a wooden bin. You can place your compost pile in the shade or the sun, but it will do what it’s supposed to do in the sun a lot quicker. Next, what do you add to your compost? Think “greens” and “browns”. Greens can come from scraps of fruits and vegetables, dying flowers, and other plant material. Things that are brown can be used like: egg shells, coffee grounds, twigs, newspaper, biodegradable paper, hay/straw, old leaves, and pine needles. After a couple of months, use a pitch fork to get it all stirred up, and start using your compost in your gardening! Let’s do it!

Here’s the update for the inside of the Main Market at Muskingum Drive!

The Walnut Creek Rolled Butter is such a treat! Butter is one of those foods that does not have many ingredients. If you are looking for a high quality butter with just cream and salt, the butter from Walnut Creek is a great choice!

There is nothing better to top butter with than a delightful jam or jelly. Walnut Creek has any flavor of butter you can think of! You can’t go wrong with classic Strawberry jam or jelly. There are also some wonderful strawberry combinations like Strawberry Kiwi, Strawberry Pineapple, and Strawberry Rhubarb. Yum! Eat it on some Breton crackers or some freshly baked bread and it’s the perfect snack or side dish.

Newsletter #71: Feb. 10-16

Welcome to the week of LOVE! Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday. Don’t get yourself in the doghouse by forgetting this day!

Cupid was not always depicted as the chubby infant that we all think of. Cupid was the heartthrob son of the Roman goddess, Venus. He would actually try to trick and cause problems when it came to love. During the Renaissance period, an artist painted Cupid as a young boy with a boy and arrow. When valentines became popular in the 1800s, the adorable cherub was created!

It is not too late to order some big, fresh chocolate covered strawberries! We will take orders through Tuesday. You can order at either location, and we can bring to either location for you to pick up. One dozen chocolate covered strawberries are $24.99! Choose from milk, white, or dark chocolate for the dipping and you can choose a different chocolate for a pretty drizzle over top. This would make a the perfect Valentine’s present for your children, parents, love, or yourself! I’m hoping I get some milk chocolate strawberries with a mix of dark and white drizzle on top…..

It’s Super Bowl Sunday!!!!! Wahoo! Kick off is at 6:30 p.m. and the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet starts at 2:00 p.m. Huck’s has all sorts of meats, cheeses, trays, breads, crackers, sausages, etc. for you to have an enjoyable Super Bowl! We can do up trays for you if you would like! We have veggie, fruit, meat and cheese, sandwich, and cookie trays in both small and large sizes. There are lots of cookies and snacks as well! Most of us will have to work Monday morning, so this is a delicious and easy way to enjoy the game without cooking all afternoon and doing a bunch of dishes! That’s my kind of Super Bowl party!

Downtown Update!

We are enjoying our new location! If you haven’t gotten a chance to stop in, we hope you will! Also, don’t forget that we do lunch deliveries, and we have breakfast!

Outside Update outside!

Only 38 days until Spring! It’s coming! This warm weather has been a wonderful treat hasn’t it? But winter temps are back on the horizon starting next week.

Did you know that out of the thousands of insects that are in the average garden, only 10% of them are destructive? Most are helpful or are harmless. Helpful insects fall into three different categories….Pollinators, Predators, and Parasitizers. Pollinators include bees, moths, and butterflies. Predators, like ladybugs and praying mantids, eat bad insects in our gardens. Finally, parasitizers lay their eggs on top of destructive insects. When the eggs hatch, they feed on the host insect. (almanac.com)

Here’s our update for inside the market!

Soup’s on! Come on in and grab a steaming bowl of warm and comforting soup. Add some crackers and you’ve got a perfect lunch!

Here’s this week’s soup schedule:

Monday: Chicken Noodle and Chili

Tuesday: Vegetable Beef and Creamy Potato

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper, White Chicken Chili

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Sausage Tortellini

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli and Tomato Basil

Our deli is a happening place! There are all types of meats and cheeses to choose from! There are lots of combinations for you to make your perfect lunchtime sandwich!

Our breads are freshly baked each and every morning. Whether your favorite is white, wheat, rye, cinnamon rolls, pan rolls or sourdough, you can always guarantee a high quality product! The sourdough bread is a rounder loaf. It is perfect for hollowing it out for soup or a yummy dip!

Sydney has a bible quiz meet this morning in Columbus, so afterwards, we are heading to get some new crafts for Spring! Be sure to stop in at the beginning of next week to see all the cute things that I found!

We are stocked up with Yoder’s Good Health Recipe. It’s raw vinegar from the mother mixed with a blend of 20 herbs and spices and 5 fruit juices. It gives you energy and it’s good for you! People for generations have known the healing benefits of apple cider vinegar! It can help lower blood glucose levels and reduce indigestion and acid reflux. It can also help with weight loss! Bottom’s up!

Huck’s can do all sorts of custom made meat, cheese, veggie, fruit, cookie, and sandwich trays. These are perfect for meetings, parties, get togethers, reunions, funerals, etc. You can call us at 740-374-2484, message us on Facebook, email us at hucksfarmmarket@gmail.com, or send us a fax at 740-373-0024.

Newsletter #70: February 3-9

Well, Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction is in! Yesterday morning at 7:28 a.m., Phil was taken out of his hole and did not see his shadow! So, his prediction is an early Spring! Wahoo! 13 minutes later, Buckeye Chuck also did not see his shadow! So, an early Spring it is!

Have you ever looked at the Harmar Village – Marietta, Ohio Facebook page? Trish Caldwell-Landsittel, who runs the page, does a great job of including historical content about Marietta and Harmar Village. She always has the most interesting pictures and her posts and the comments are fun to read! You will learn a lot about the history our beautiful river town!

Here is the update for our mini market at 114 Putnam Street!

We have had a great first week downtown! Thanks to all of you who have stopped in to check it out! We hope that if you haven’t ever been to our main market on Muskingum Drive, you will check it out as well! It’s a lot bigger and there are lots of different things to try there!

Stop in for a homemade breakfast sandwich! You can choose your cheese and whether you want bacon or sausage. You can have it made with our freshly baked bread, a bagel, an English muffin, or a croissant. They are tasty and for $3.99 it won’t break the bank!

Some of you have been asking about the prints on the wall downtown, and since today is National American Painter Day, I thought I’d tell you about them. They are by American folk artist Warren Kimble. This artist loves Americana and paints things that are simplistic like barns, animals, and homes. His inspiration is from the Vermont countryside where he and his wife live. He retired in 2006, but his prints are still available! I love them all, especially his farm animals!

Look below for our soup schedule! Our plan is to keep the soups the same at both locations each day!

We are starting to add a few more items to the market. We have brought in some jellies and jams and the ever popular Claeys Old Fashioned Candy in Licorice, Root Beer, Watermelon, and Wild Cherry. They are a good little treat at the office!

Here’s our update for outside at Muskingum Drive!

There are only 46 days until Spring! We are gearing up for a beautiful flower season!

Our gardening zone is 6. This means we have a medium growing season. Our last frost date is typically May 1st and our first frost date is November 1st. There are quite a few veggies that can be planted prior to that May 1st date, such as: beets, spinach, kale, cauliflower, carrots, onions, and peas. This will free up time during May which is such a busy gardening month!

Here’s our update for inside !

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! We are now taking orders for Chocolate Covered Strawberries. A dozen big, red, juicy strawberries covered in milk, white, or dark chocolate. These are the perfect way to show someone how special they are! Each dozen costs $24.99, and they will be ready for pick up whenever you need them! We will be taking orders through February 13th.

Although this isn’t the time for local produce, we still have lots of fresh fruits and veggies available: cucumbers, zucchini, squash, carrots, lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, bananas, lots of apple varieties, oranges, lemons, limes, clementines, potatoes, onions, fresh garlic, and sweet potatoes.

Here is our warm and yummy soup schedule for the upcoming week!

Monday: Chicken Noodle and Bean Soup with Ham

Tuesday: Creamy Potato, Taco Soup

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper and Minestrone

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Grandma’s Tomato Soup

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Vegetable Soup

Newsletter #69: Jan. 27-Feb. 2nd

Hello, everyone! I hope you have had a wonderful week! The warm temperatures were a welcome change from the bitterness of last week. But wow, what a lot of rain on an already soggy ground! I know parts of Frontier school district and Noble County flooded. There’s a lot of rain coming again today, so don’t put those umbrellas away just yet!

Tonight (Saturday) at Marietta High School, the Interact Club (Junior Rotary) and Key Club (Junior Kiwanis) are teaming up and hosting the “Snow Ball”! All the proceeds of this winter dance are going to support the Gospel Mission Food Pantry on the west side! There is a lot of food insecurity in our area, and we are glad to be giving back to our community! Key Club advisor, Sally Latture, and I are going to dance the night away as we spend a fun evening with our students at MHS!

For those of you who are new to our weekly newsletter….Welcome! We started our newsletter as a way for our customers to hear what’s going on at the market! And now also on Putnam Street! Plus, Jim and I are busy working parents of 4, so it makes more sense for us to share weekly rather than daily! That being said, I’m going to do a better job of organizing our newsletter into sections, especially now that we have expanded. Here’s how I’m planning on organizing it: Introduction, 114 Putnam Street, Outside Update for Muskingum Drive, Inside Update for Muskingum Drive, Deli Specials at Muskingum Drive, Craft Nights and Classes. I will do a better job of titling each section, so you can easily find the parts you want! Of course, if you want to read the whole thing, we would love that the most!

Ground Hog Day is next Friday! Will Punxsutawney Phil or Buckeye Chuck see their shadows and leave us with six more weeks of winter? Or will they decide Spring is coming in six weeks? Wait….aren’t those the same thing? Lol. This tradition has been celebrated since the 1500s and started in Canada. Buckeye Chuck lives in Marion County, Ohio, and he became the official groundhog of Ohio in 1979. Poor Buckeye Chuck has about a 20% chance of predicting correctly. Punxstawney Phil has a record of 39%. Right or wrong, they are cute, and it’s a fun winter tradition!

Putnam Street Update!

Thank you for being so kind and welcoming to us as we open 114 Putnam Street! There are many reasons why Marietta is such a special place, and the wonderful people are at the top!

Thank you to local florist Two Peas in a Pod for bringing us a beautiful flower bouquet to welcome us to the downtown neighborhood. How thoughtful of you to think of us on our opening day! Check out their colorful bouquet below!

Thank you for hanging right in there with us as we learn the flow at a new place. We were glad to start with a partial opening and are happy that we will have our full menu on Monday starting at 7:00 a.m.!

Discount Signs and Awnings located in downtown Marietta did a wonderful job putting our signage on the front window! We love it and are super happy with the results! You can see our window below!

Our Putnam Street phone number is 740-373-3740.

Our hours are 7:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.

I’ve posted our menu below in case anyone missed it a couple days ago. We will be adding to the menu as we go, so stay tuned for that!

We will always have two from scratch soups simmering on the stove. Hope you decide to try them with your favorite custom made sandwich or salad!

Outside Update Muskingum Drive:

Even though it feels like Spring outside, we still have 52 days until Spring. That’s not too bad! We’ve begun to get our catalogs for flowers, vegetables, and other plants! Yay! There’s nothing like Springtime at the market…..well maybe Summertime is best with all the delicious produce….or what about the Fall with apples, mums, and pumpkins….I guess every season is my favorite outside at the market.

Have you started thinking about flowers and plants you would like to put in your garden this year? Let us know a new plant you are hoping to find this growing season. We will do our best to find it!

Hello, winter, frigid temps, and snow! I hope you have all stayed warm during all the winter weather we have been getting. I love the snow, but I could do without the bitter temperatures! Did you know that before the snowfall last week, Philadelphia was in a snow drought? They had gone 715 days without snow on the ground! Here are some fun facts about snow, since it’s been a couple of years since we’ve had much: There has to be pollen or dust in the air for snow to form. A water droplet freezes on a dust or pollen particle and that is what causes a snowflake to form. Snow is not white. It’s translucent, but it looks white when it all collects together. Finally, snowflakes travel at 1-4 mph, so it takes them about one hour to reach the ground. (foxweather.com)

Wednesday is the tentative GRAND OPENING for our second Huck’s Farm Market location! We have had a couple delays because of the snow, so that’s why we have had to push back our opening a couple of days. We will post when we open for sure!

Where: 114 Putnam Street in Downtown Marietta

Hours: 7:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday (closed Sundays)

Breakfast Menu: breakfast sandwiches, muffins, donuts, eggs, bacon, sausage, cinnamon rolls, toasted breads, pancakes, gourmet syrups

Lunch Menu: salads, sandwiches, subs, burgers, hot dogs, chili dogs, chips

Fresh baked items: breads, pies, cookies, brownies, etc.

Other Items: Amish jellies and canned goods, Buckeyes, Dutch Delights, fudge

There are 7 little tables and a countertop with four stools, so you will be able to eat there if you want!

We will keep adding items to our menu as time goes on, so we will make sure to keep you all up to date!

We appreciate all of your well wishes! This has been part of our business plan from the start, so we are happy to see it’s finally happening!

Here’s our outside update! There are 60 days until birds will be chirping, bunnies will be hopping, and the Spring sunshine will be warming up everything! Aren’t you glad we live in a beautiful area where we get all four seasons? I know I am!

What kind of garden personality do you have? Better Homes and Gardens says there are three types…..classic, modernist, and naturalist. The classic gardener likes a mix of all sorts of annuals, perennials, colors, and styles. This gardener would have a cottage garden. The modern gardener has less plants and they are not planted closely together. They like clean lines and organization. Finally, the naturalist likes to use native plants and tries to attract butterflies and bees. No matter which gardener you are, one thing is for sure….all gardens are beautiful!

Now onto the inside of one of my favorite places!

First of all, some of you have been wondering…..Huck’s on Muskingum Drive is not changing at all!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! We are now taking orders for Chocolate Covered Strawberries. A dozen big, red, juicy strawberries covered in milk, white, or dark chocolate. These are the perfect way to show someone how special they are! Each dozen costs $24.99, and they will be ready for pick up whenever you need them! We will be taking orders through February 13th.

Thinking of a unique gift to get your Valentine? How about a gift basket from Huck’s? You could include all sorts of goodies like chocolate covered pretzels, Dutch Delights, assorted candies, and Sweetheart Jam. You could do a smoked sausage, cheeses, crackers, and a candle for a lovely, date night. The possibilities are endless! We can accent with a teddy bear and a little balloon! Love is in the air, right Jimmy?! Lol.

Pretty Prints and Tees has brought in some more shirts! There are ones for teachers, Valentine’s Day, basketball moms, and inspirational designs. These are so cute and are made of the nicest material. Check them out!

Sweetheart Jam from Walnut Creek is yummy this time of year or any time of the year for that matter! It’s made from strawberries, cherries, red raspberries, and passion fruit. Ooh la la!

If you’ve never tried Dutch Delights from Amish Country, you are in for a real treat. The chocolate is smooth, velvety, and decadent. We have about 10 different chocolates such as Pecan Cluster, French Mint, Chocolate Covered Cookie, Caramel, Peanut Dip, and Chocolate Covered Marshmallow. If you like chocolate, you will love these!

Florence Creamery has a new product at Huck’s! We will be stocked again with cheese curds on Tuesday! There are four flavors: Original, Ranch, Italian, and Garlic. Cheese curds are bits of curdled milk made when making cheese. They don’t have a strong flavor, so they are easily paired with most other foods. You can fry them, add them to salads, or eat them as a snack. Anyway you eat them, you can guarantee that they will be delicious!

Here is our warm and yummy soup schedule for the upcoming week!

Monday: Chicken Noodle and Bean Soup with Ham

Tuesday: Creamy Potato, Taco Soup

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper and Minestrone

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Grandma’s Tomato Soup

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Vegetable Soup

Hello! I hope you are looking forward to a nice weekend. Last night, I spent the night at the high school for a lock in with a great group of 7th and 8th graders and teachers. It was a great night with a mystery to solve, games, basketball, dodge ball, movies, an escape room, and pizza. A fun night overall, but I’m sleepy!

It’s almost time for the Day of LOVE……Valentine’s Day! It is just about one month away! We are now taking orders for chocolate covered strawberries. They are $24.99 a dozen. You can choose to have the strawberries dipped in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate. You can also choose which kind of chocolate they are drizzled with! Yum! These would be the perfect sweet treat for your kids, grandkids, neighbors, coworkers, spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, or friend! We can take orders through February 13th!

Here’s our update for 114 Putnam Street! It’s been a busy time for Jim and me! We have been getting things ordered and moved, cleaning, making our menu, hiring employees, and getting a sign made! As of now, we are still on track for our January 22nd opening. We love our farm market so much, and this new location will be the perfect addition!

People have been asking if we will be doing lunch delivery downtown. Yes, we will!

We have also been getting quite a few inquiries wanting to know how our new puppy, Brownie, is doing. That’s so nice of you to ask! That little puppy is so fun! He is just a lovable, ball of fur. He has a chubby belly, and he is everyone’s best friend. We are enjoying him! I have a couple of pics of him down below!

Here’s our outside update…..

Now we are at 67 days until the beloved Spring!

The rose, as I’m sure you all know, is considered “The Queen of the Garden” and the most beautiful flower in the world. I would have to say that roses are my very favorite flower in a garden. They are so fragrant and Roses come in many varieties that rose specialists put into three categories: Old Garden Roses, Wild Roses, and Modern Garden Roses. Old Garden Roses have been around before 1867. These hardy roses are disease resistant, but they only bloom once a year. These are the most fragrant of roses, particularly those with the double flower bloom. Wild roses are almost usually pink. These have a single bloom with five petals. If you find a yellow wild rose, you should play the lottery, because it is extremely uncommon! Modern Garden Roses were bred after 1867. These roses bloom continuously, have a longer vase life, and have a larger bloom. These are less hardy, less fragrant, and are prone to disease. What is your favorite type of rose?

Better get ready for some bitter cold temperatures this coming week! Looks like there may be some snow dispersed throughout the week as well! I think

Here’s our inside update in our cozy farm market….

This will be the perfect week to warm up during your lunch time with a bowl of our from scratch soups!

Monday: Chicken Noodle and Chili

Tuesday: Vegetable Beef and Creamy Potato

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper, White Chicken Chili

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Sausage Tortellini

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli and Tomato Basil

Who loves to sit down with a crunchy snack? Huck’s has all sorts of different trail mixes from Walnut Creek to choose from. We have Blazing Trail, Amish Country Hot, Chocolate English Toffee, Crunchy Nut Bliss, Honey Island Crunch, and Nut and Sweety. If you haven’t tried one, maybe you could pick one up the next time you’re in. They are all so tasty and give you an alternative to the usual chips or cracker. They would go perfectly with one of our old fashioned fizzy pops in the cooler!

The Blazing Trail Mix includes: Pepper nuts, roasted salted peanuts, hot Cajun sesame sticks, Cheddar cheese corn sticks, Chili lemon corn sticks, roasted salted cashews, raw pumpkin seeds, roasted salted almonds, and Cheddar sesame sticks.

The Amish Country Hot Mix includes: Mini twist pretzels, nacho corn stick, peanuts, hot Cajun corn sticks, pepper nuts, hot Cajun sesame sticks, and Chili crescents.

The English Toffee Mix incudes: Mini chocolate caramel, butter toasted peanuts, and walnuts. If you like Milk Duds, you should try this!

The Crunchy Nut Bliss Mix includes: Honey roasted sesame sticks, butter toasted peanuts, wheat crackers, hickory smoked almonds, oat bran pretzel nuggets, roasted cashews, roasted peanuts, and chili lemon corn sticks.

The Honey Island Mix includes: Honey roasted peanuts, honey roasted sesame sticks, banana chips, dried pineapple, dried papaya, and roasted salted cashew pieces.

The Nut & Sweety Mix includes: Roasted salted peanuts, raisins, M&M’s, roasted salted whole almonds, and banana chips.

Our deli is stocked full of lots of wonderful quality meats and cheeses. If there is ever one of them you would like to try, just ask us! We are more than happy to let you try a little piece before you decide to buy it. Also, we have a cutting guide on the top of the deli case, so we can make sure to cut it just the way you like it! Running short on time and don’t have time to wait? Call ahead and we can get your meat and cheese cut and ready for you when you walk in!

Crafts are on sale! 50% off! We are wanting to make room for some new items! Come on in and check them out!

Our products from Forever Caroline are so unique and well made. They feature the artwork of 7 different Appalachian artists. I love that they capture the feel of the wonderful area in which we live. They offer notecards, notepads, fabric products like bags and aprons, love notes, recipe cards, and gift sets. If you go into Huck’s, they are in the cupboard to the left of the front door. The owner of Forever Caroline, Julie, lives right here in Marietta, and we are happy to have her at Huck’s!

Want to know what makes Duck Creek Candles unique? This is why!

We often get asked, “What makes your candles different than all the other candle choices?”……. To start, we only use 100% American Soy Wax. No blend, pure soy to give a slow, clean burning candle or melt. But that’s not all, we only use high quality, clean label fragrances and blend them by hand with the maximum amount for the strongest scent. Yep, every product is blended & poured by hand. It takes a little longer but we believe it’s worth it in the end. Also, there’s no lead or zinc in any of our wicks, just cotton weaved with a little paper. And then we let each candle & melt cure for a minimum of 14 days to maximize the scent……From the start & still to this day we just wanted to make the highest quality products that people would love and we’ve found that requires the extra steps.

New Craft Classes are being planned and will be posted soon! We are going to get 114 Putnam Street up and running first, and then we will have time to get our craft classes back on schedule!

Hopefully, you are having a great start to your school year! School is back in session, and if the second half of the school year goes as quickly as the first, it will be spring before we know it!

114 Putnam Street Update: Things are coming along at our new location! Our tentative open date is Monday, January 22nd. We are working hard to make sure that date sticks! Crossing our fingers!

One thing I am excited about with the new location is our craft nights! We will be able to have them at our Putnam Street location without moving a lot of things and being crammed in! Yay! We have some wonderful ideas in the works, so stay tuned for that!

Here’s our outside update!

It’s a slow time for sure outside. But we are making all sorts of plans for Springtime! There are 74 more days until Spring. That doesn’t seem like too many. It’s been pretty mild so far this winter, but there may be some winter weather coming in the next week or so. My sister and I faithfully read Chris Bailey’s weather blog. He used to be a meteorologist out of Charleston, but he moved to Kentucky several years ago. He posts a blog daily, and they are fun to read! He includes a lot of maps and even though he is forecasting mainly for Kentucky now, he always includes Southeast Ohio and most of West Virginia as well.

The website Growing in the Garden has a wonderful article called “6 Habits of Highly Successful Gardeners.” Here is their list of things we should do everyday in our gardens during the growing season. 1. Pay attention to the watering. (Check for plants that need watered and those that are overwatered.) 2. Keep up with daily pruning, wedding, and deadheading. (Doing this daily keeps it manageable.) 3. Look for bugs that are both good and bad. (Take action before it becomes a big problem.) 4. Look for the early signs of disease (Treat accordingly.) 5. Observe new growths and blooms. (Enjoy your plants! This is the best part!) 6. Keep up with harvesting. (This will ensure a long, bountiful produce season!) They have lots of neat little tidbits under each of these habits, so be sure to check out this article!

Here’s our weekly update for inside!

Just another reminder that our winter hours have begun:

Monday-Friday: 9:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Saturday: 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.

Sunday: 11:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m.

There’s nothing better than some from scratch soups on a winter day to go with a fresh deli sub! That being said….here is our soup schedule for the upcoming week!

Monday: Chicken Noodle and Bean Soup with Ham

Tuesday: Creamy Potato, Taco Soup

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper and Minestrone

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Grandma’s Tomato Soup

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Vegetable Soup

Our delicious baked items are made fresh every morning! Stop in and grab some cookies, breads, cinnamon rolls, or sandwich buns!

NEW COOKIE on the shelf! Along with our raisin filled cookies, we have added a black raspberry filled cookie drizzled with a yummy glaze. Wow! Stop in and try these delicious cookies!

Let’s take a good look at our Sandwich Shop!

First, decide if you want a salad or a sandwich.

Salads come in two sizes. You can get a small salad without meat for $2.99 or add meat and your salad would cost $4.49. Large salads without meat are $5.49 and $6.99 for a large salad with meat.

Newsletter #64: Dec. 30-Jan. 6

Jim and I would like to start this newsletter by thanking you for a wonderful 2023. We love and appreciate all of you, and we enjoy getting to know you as well! We also want to thank all our faithful employees for their hard work in 2023! Huck’s certainly couldn’t run without all of you!

It’s almost 2024! This year is certain to be an exciting one! We are looking forward to getting our second location up and running at 114 Putnam Street, our oldest son will be graduating and heading off to college, it’s a leap year, and there will be a presidential election. Here’s to a happy, healthy year for all of us!

Are you doing anything fun for New Year’s Eve? Do you eat some pork chops and sauerkraut for New Year’s Day? This German tradition is said to bring wealth and good luck all year! For those of you who say no way to sauerkraut….add some brown sugar and eat it over mashed potatoes, and I think you might just change your mind!

The islands of Oceania east of Australia are the first countries to ring in the new year. So, if you can’t stay up for the ball in the NYC to drop…..the New Year will begin at 5:00 a.m. Saturday (our time) in Fiji!

Santa brought a bundle of fur and energy to The Goeller house on Christmas morning. We have a new puppy! His name is Brownie after The Cleveland Brown’s old mascot, Brownie The Fighting Elf! He’s so cute! This is the first time we’ve had a dog in the house, and I think a newborn baby is much easier! Ha! Although… he’s doing a very good job. We will see how he does next week when we head back to school. Check out his picture below!

Here’s the update for outside!

Since there’s not much to report outside, I’ll start some weather and gardening info to get us in the mood for Spring. I do love snow, so I’m on the lookout for some pretty flakes to stick to the ground! My favorite part about winter weather is watching it from somewhere warm, like the couch with a warm blanket over top of me. The older I get the less I like the cold!

There is a new invasive pest that has been found in both Ohio and West Virginia. It is called the Spotted Lanternfly, and it arrived in the Northeast U.S. from Asia on a stone shipment back in 2014. This insect is very harmful to fruit trees, so orchards are rightfully concerned. It is a moth looking insect grows to the size of a quarter with a black body and gray and red wings with black spots on them. In Ohio, they have been found in the northern counties, and they are also now in the Eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Both states’ Department of Natural Resources say these insects need to be reported if they are seen. (agri.ohio.gov)

Here’s our weekly update for the inside of the market!

New Item! A couple of days a week you will find some warm White Cheddar Mac n’ Cheese beside the soups. This yummy macaroni and cheese is warm and comforting during these cold winter days. Try some!

Everyone has been very responsive to our soups! Here is the schedule for soups for the upcoming work week!

Monday: New Year’s Day (closed)

Tuesday: Vegetable Beef, Creamy Potato

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper, White Chicken Chili

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Sausage Tortellini

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Tomato Basil

All of our crafts are 50% right now! It’s time to move some things out to make room for more pretty items! We have a couple of braided rugs that would be perfect for a cold floor in your kitchen or bathroom. Braided rugs are an old tradition dating back to ancient Europe, but it was particularly popular by Colonial women in early America. Women made these rugs from leftover scraps to keep the floors warm and the colors made their homes look pretty. I love old-fashioned things!

Another option for pork is the ever popular Bahama Mamas! These come from Walnut Creek and they are a German Recipe Smoked Sausage. You could nestle them into a crockpot of Walnut Creek Sauerkraut or eat them on some of our freshly baked hot dog buns! Either way would be delicious!

I’ve been reading up on the importance of gut health, and one of the tastiest ways to add probiotics and good bacteria to our digestive systems is from yogurt! We have a delicious line of whole milk yogurts from September Farm. In the past few months, we’ve added some more flavors, and they are all delicious and high quality! You can choose from Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, Lemon Honey, Plain, Vanilla, and Peach. I have tried them all, and they are all good. The plain is great as a substitute for sour cream or added to a dip or smoothie. I hope you will give this tangy, health food a try if you haven’t already!

Florence Creamery Cheese Curds are in our cooler. I googled what to do with cheese curds, and I found a website “17 Easy Recipes With Cheese Curds” by insanelygoodrecipes.com! It has recipes for Air Fried Cheese Curds, Marinated Cheese Curds, and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Yum! I’m going to get some, and try them in the Air Fryer this week for the family!

We were asked by a customer if we could carry Walnut Creek Real Mayonnaise. It’s now on the shelf with the Walnut Creek Steak Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce, Hot Sauce, Soy Sauce, Teriyaki Sauce, and Ketchup. All of our grocery items are competitively priced which is great for a high end product!

Dutch Delights have been restocked! The chocolate section got pretty much cleared out during December, so now all your favorites are plentiful!

Haney’s Kettle Corn has restocked with some yummy flavors like Christmas Crunch and Original Kettle Corn!

There is a wide variety of dips available for your New Year’s Eve party. They are easy to make and go perfectly with crackers, pretzels, breads, or veggies!

We are blessed to have the best small business partners around! Please take the time to read their names and support them as well!
