Newsletter #63: Dec. 16-22

Hello, everyone! How many days are there left until Christmas???? I say…Not enough! This is such a wonderful time of year, and I hope you all are enjoying it!

So, Jim and I are finally ready to announce our exciting news! We have gotten the keys to a second location for Huck’s! Sometime in January, we are going to be opening up a mini Huck’s Farm Market at 114 Putnam Street in downtown Marietta! It’s going to be a breakfast/sandwich shop with our baked goods and other items as well! We are very excited about this new opportunity, and we will share more news in the weeks to come!

This week we are going to dive into some of the more traditional Christmas foods! First up is the fruit cake! This has to be one of the most divisive foods of all time! This is known as the first energy bar, and it dates back to the Romans. In the 1700s, the colonists in America could use candied fruit from the fall harvest to make this European bread in the winter. It also has a great shelf life! The perfect fruit cake has been seasoned over the course of several months before serving. Finally, fruit cake became popular in the 1950s in America with some magazines back then calling it the perfect gift and a must at the Christmas dinner table. By the 1980s though, 75% of people said it was the worst gift you could give or receive. Ha! (pbs.org)

Next up is figgy pudding! This molded pudding is also called Christmas pudding and plum pudding. This cake-like dessert is dense and filled with nuts, dried fruits, and spices. This dates back to the medieval times and sounds to me a lot like Fruit Cake! It was originally made with 13 ingredients which signifies the 12 apostles and Christ. A holly sprig was always placed on the top to symbolize the crown of thorns. (taste of home.com)

The candy cane has been a Christmas staple for centuries. Its origin dates back to Cologne, Germany where a choir leader gave his choirboys sugar candy sticks to keep them quiet during church. He shaped them into shepherd hooks. It was first associated with Christmas when a German immigrant from Wooster, Ohio decorated his tree with them, and at the start of the 1900s, red stripes and peppermint flavoring were added to give us the traditional candy cane. (candyhistory.net)

There isn’t much to say about the outside of the market this time of year! I’ll start giving some gardening facts and a countdown to Spring once the new year comes!

Inside the market is a hopping place this time of year!

Don’t forget cookies for Santa! Wonder what is his favorite? Choose from Sugar, Ginger Molasses, Snickerdoodle, Brownie Cookie, Coconut Pecan, Cranberry Walnut, Lemon Cooler, Chocolate Chunk, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter. We will try to have some of our from scratch Raisin cookies as well, but if you want to be guaranteed to get some, I would call in and order some!

We are taking orders for Christmas party trays all the way up to Christmas Eve! That goes for pies and rolls as well!

Not sure what all comes on our trays? Here’s a brief description of each:

Meat and Cheese Tray: Your choice of 3 meats and 3 cheeses sliced just the way how like it. Comes with both yellow mustard and mayo.

Tuesday: Creamy Potato, Taco Soup

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper and Minestrone

Hopefully, you have gotten to see Chippy, our elf at Huck’s, the past few weeks. Sydney had been asking him to come visit Snowflake at our house. He finally did one day last week, and she was thrilled!

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

Some of our pottery bowls from The Potter’s Hand would be the perfect size for our dips. The glazed pottery items are dishwasher safe and are perfectly fine to use for food or eating! Another reason to buy these new one of a kind items!

Have you seen our adorable Christmas shirts from Pretty Prints and Tees and Duffy’s Designs? These custom made shirts are made from the softest material and have the cutest designs around! We have all sorts of sizes!

We have gotten a restock from Haney’s Kettle Corn and Duck Creek Candle Co. They have a great variety of flavors and scents! Two cozy ways to enjoy the holiday season!

Cornerstone Homestead has a great variety of scents of soaps and bath shots. They have salves and beard oils. All of these are organically made and are hypoallergenic, so these are a win-win!

Don’t forget to check out all of the Christmas ornaments we have to choose from! There are wooden ones, stenciled ones, bulbs, ceramic ones, etc. There really is one for everyone’s Christmas decorating style!

To stay up with the old-time tradition, we all better pick up one of the Claxton Old Fashioned Fruit Cake. Just seeing a log of this takes me back to being a kid and seeing it on my grandparents’ tables at Christmas. And you know what….it actually tastes pretty good now that I’m in my 40’s. Lol.

It’s cutting it close for a gift basket to be shipped, but you can still order one to pick up!

The Peppermint ice cream from Velvet is a hit!

Newsletter #62: Dec. 9-15

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year….!” I hope you all are getting a chance to enjoy the season among the hustle and bustle! I will admit I’m a little bit behind, and I’m trying not to let a wave of stress wash over me when I think about it! Ha! I’m sure someone else can relate! Oh well, it will all get done!

Are you one of the those people who loves to have Christmas music playing in their car the whole month of December? If so, this week is all about Christmas music!

Brenda Lee was just 13 when she sang “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” 65 years ago. Her song never made it to #1 until this week! That’s amazing!

Singing Christmas carols actually stopped a battle during WWI for the night! On Christmas Eve 1914, the British heard carols being sung and trees being put up on the German side. They sent messages to each other, and the next day the British and German soldiers exchanged presents, buried those who had died in battle, repaired their trenches, and played football. Each side sang the same carols at the same time in their own languages. The fighting began again on December 26th. (sapaindia.com)

“Jingle Bells” was originally written for Thanksgiving! And it was also the first song played in Outer Space on December 16, 1965!

“White Christmas” by Bing Crosby is the best selling song of all time with over 50 million copies sold since 1942.

Finally, the Puritans banned singing Christmas carols back in the 1600s in Great Britain, because they thought it was pagan and an inappropriate way to show their faith.

Here’s a quick shout out to one of my Spanish students who reads this newsletter every Saturday morning…..Jeremiah Loughry! Gracias para leer, Fernando! Hasta lunes! Be ready to start your mid-term exam project/presentation. Lol.

Jim and I have some big news to share with you all in the next week or so! Stay tuned to hear our exciting announcement!

On to the market!

Another shout out to Jim for making the outside of the market look cozy and inviting with the Christmas lights! I love it!

There are only a couple live wreaths left! We are glad they were so well-received!

Here’s our update for the inside of the market…

There is still Aspen cider mixes and egg nog mix as well. They smell as wonderful as they taste!

All fall crafts are 50% off starting today!

We’ve got many different styles of high quality t-shirts with Christmas themes! These t-shirts come in all sizes! These would be perfect to get into the Christmas spirit!

There are gift items galore! Country gifts, t-shirts, candles, soaps, stationary, etc. There really is such a great selection that you will be able to find something perfect for a gift exchange, co-worker, sister, friend, mom, etc.

We got a load of apples in! There is a new variety called Luda Crisp. If you like a sweet, sour, juicy, and delicious flavor, this apple is for YOU! This apple is newer. It started to be grown in 2020 and is a relative to the popular Evercrisp and Honeycrisp. It is described as being a large, red apple with a crisp flesh and a tropical fruit flavor. It is being compared to Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Jim cut one up for the employees, and he ended up eating half of it and then two more! Oh, my, let’s get some!

We are taking lots of orders for Christmas gift boxes and baskets! There are lots of options, so don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions and let us create the perfect gift! We are also going to spend some time today putting together boxes and baskets to sell on the floor and to give you an in-person visual for ideas!

We are also taking orders for our party trays. These trays are made with only the best and freshest ingredients! They are also made close to the time you need them, so they aren’t sitting around.

Don’t forget to get your order in for pies, rolls, and cookies for Christmas!

Jellies and jams are perfect this time of year for snacks and parties. We have a great selection of jams and jellies from both Walnut Creek and Amish Wedding. Which is best? We aren’t really sure. They both sell very well! At home this week, we tried the Fruit Sweetened Strawberry Jam from Walnut Creek. It is so good!

We have all sorts of spices, rubs, and dips to add some flavor to your holiday dinners and gatherings!

Jim‘s mother, Jill, has been busy quilting an Ohio State lap quilt to sell at Huck’s. It is a log cabin pattern with the squares turned in different directions. This would make a great gift for the Buckeye fan! Just imagine the Buckeye fan in your life watching the bowl game over the holidays under this beautiful quilt. Check out the picture below! The price is $125.00.

Cinnamon imperials finally came back in stock! These are on the shelf and ready for your enjoyment!

Newsletter #61: Dec. 2-10

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful week! Looks like there may be a chance of snow next week!

Have you gotten your Christmas tree up yet? We did that last Monday night! It’s one of my favorite family traditions. We always get a live tree, and we decorate it with colored lights….although this year, we had to use half colored and half white lights, because we didn’t have enough colored lights.

Christmas trees became popular in the United States after Germans came to help the British fight all the way back in the Revolutionary War. Those early Christmas trees were lit with candles! They used whatever they had for decorations….apples, figs, popcorn, cranberries, and pastries cut out into stars, hearts, and flowers.

Here are a few more facts about Christmas trees. It takes 15 years for a Christmas tree to grow to an average height. Franklin Pierce, our 14th president, had the first Christmas tree in the White House. There are over 12,000 cut-your-own Christmas tree farms in the U.S. (Yay, Caywood Christmas Tree Farm). The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in NYC is a Norway Spruce and is between 70-100 feet high! The Balsam fir is the most fragrant of all the evergreens. In Germany, Poland, and Ukraine finding a spider or a spider web in your Christmas tree is good luck. The trending color this year for Christmas decorations is pink. And finally, white lights are more popular than colored! (google.com)

P.S. I can write comments again! Lol. I disputed the ban, and I must have won!

Here’s what’s new outside:

We still have some live wreaths! We have two different sizes. The 22″ wreaths are priced at $16.99, and they are perfect for a grave.

The 28″ live wreaths have juniper berries and pine cones and are $29.99! So pretty!

Our plan is to get our Christmas decorations outside all done this weekend!

Here’s our inside update!

Our Elves on the Shelf have returned! Sydney has been anxiously awaiting their arrival at home and at Huck’s! They finally came yesterday morning. Snowflake is our elf at home, and Chippy is our elf at Huck’s! We also have some Elf on the Shelf candies at the register. These are only 15 cents each, and we would be happy to share them with you for your elf at home!

Soups on! Here’s our schedule for the work 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

This weekend we are going to start making some gift baskets that you can purchase inside the market. These will be filled with shelf stable gourmet items from Walnut Creek. If you don’t see one you like, just ask, and we can make one just the way you want it for whatever price you want to pay!

Gift baskets can be easily shipped to a loved one who lives out of town! We can guarantee a delivery by Christmas if we get your order by December 17th!

There are lots of pretty Christmas decorations and gifts!

Jim‘s mother, Jill, has been busy quilting an Ohio State lap quilt to sell at Huck’s. It is a log cabin pattern with the squares turned in different directions. This would make a great gift for the Buckeye fan! Just imagine the Buckeye fan in your life watching the bowl game over the holidays under this beautiful quilt. Check out the picture below! The price is $125.00.

Duffy’s Designs has delivered family sets of pajamas! We have sizes for women, men, and the kids! They have the cutest black and red Buffalo check pants and shirts to go with them. If you like the movie “Christmas Vacation”, then you will recognize the sayings on the front! Hop on board with the trend of family pajamas for Christmas Eve!

We are taking orders for party trays, pies, rolls, and cookie trays. Call us at 740-373-2484! This is one less thing you have to worry about this Christmas season!

Here comes the bride….no, Jim and I are not renewing our wedding vows in front of the deli case, but you can pick up a from-scratch wedding cake cupcake in both white and chocolate! Each one is $2.49 and worth every penny!

Cinnamon imperials finally came back in stock! These are on the shelf and ready for your enjoyment!

Huck’s has some delicious mixes for dips! Your holiday party can be over the top with a homemade dip, like cucumber dill, southwest, sun-dried tomato and basil, natural garlic and herb, and vegetable. Most require nothing more than sour cream and/or cream cheese, which can both be found in our cooler! And you can pick up fresh veggies in our produce area! Easy peasy!

Don’t forget to check out the vast array of items from all of our local business partners! We love having them in Huck’s, and they all have such high quality products!

Newsletter #60: Nov. 26-Dec.1

The Christmas season has begun! It’s time for decorating, shopping, parties, church celebrations, Christmas programs, and Christmas music! Hopefully, you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready for the festivities of the holidays to begin! If you like to shop on a schedule, then….

Today is Small Business Saturday!

Next, Cyber Monday….and Giving Tuesday! Then, it goes back to regular ol’ Christmas shopping. Lol!

You know what happens at noon today?….It’s the Ohio State v. Michigan game! What a game it will be! You have the #2 Buckeyes playing the #3 Wolverines. Oh, I hope the Buckeyes can pull out the win. The Goeller household may not be able to take a third loss in a row….The all-record for this match up is 60-51-6. The team up North has won 9 more times than us! Come on, Bucks! You can do it!

The history of this rivalry has roots all the way back to The Toledo War in 1835. Michigan and Ohio were at war over the borderline between the two states, both of whom wanted the Toledo strip. There was no actual fighting, but the two states put troops in the Toledo area. After a scuffle led to a sheriff being stabbed, the two states decided to peacefully end their disagreement. Once the Woody Hayes/Bo Schembechler Era began, the rivalry between the scarlet and gray and the maize and blue ramped up even more! It is now the biggest rivalry in college football! You can read more details at https://observer.case.edu/the-origin-of-the-ohio-michigan-rivalry/ GOOOO BUCKS!

I’m wishing my mama, Ruthie Hall, a very Happy Birthday today! She’s fun, loving, and the best mom and granny! Love you, mother!

If you write a comment on the newsletter, unfortunately, I can’t answer it. I will answer you with a message. I got banned from writing comments, because “they” said that I’m not being inclusive enough. It’s because I wrote a comment back to Haney’s Kettle Corn that they have the best kettle corn. I guess you can’t write the word “best” or your comments will be banned for singling someone out as better than others. Hahaha! Sometimes I wonder, are we living in 2023 or in the Twilight Zone? Anyway, I didn’t want anyone to think we were being rude for not responding!

Here’s our update for outside!

Jim and I did a final Fall clean up outside yesterday! We got rid of all the pumpkins and corn shocks. Now, we need to do that at home!

We got in some 22″ live wreaths. They are just $16.99!

Today, we will also have some 28″ live wreaths with juniper berries and pine cones on them to dress them up! The price on these will be $29.99!

Let’s get a pretty live wreath to dress up our front doors! How welcoming we will be!

Look for our lights and Christmas inflatables to be up in the next day or two!

Here’s our inside update…..

We have some pretty 4″ red and white poinsettias priced at $3.99 each! They are an inexpensive way to add a little color to a table or mantle! Just a reminder that poinsettias are poisonous to pets. If they eat it, they can get a rash inside their mouth and an upset belly. (Poison Control)

We have a great sale going on in our craft and gift area! All fall and non seasonal items are 50% off tomorrow, and any of our Christmas items are 40% off. This includes lamps, flags, shirts, ornaments, pottery, rugs, placemats, birdhouses, signs, Santas, snowmen, and country gifts! (Exclusions apply.)

We are beginning to put together sample baskets and boxes for Christmas gifts. These are custom made and can include items such as: jellies, shelf stable smoked sausage, shelf stable cheese, gourmet crackers, Dutch Delights chocolates, Strawberry Bon Bons, fancy mustards, nuts, holiday pretzels, apples, oranges, and pears. Similar to our sandwich shop, these baskets/boxes can be made to order with you choosing what goes inside and how much you want to spend! These are shrink wrapped with a Christmas bow. We can also deliver or ship if needed! Just think of how happy your loved one, friend, neighbor, clergy, client, etc. would be getting a gift basket they could enjoy this holiday season!

Now is the time to start thinking about your holiday gatherings, work parties, and family get-togethers! Huck’s has roughly 30 different meats and 30 different cheeses in our deli to choose from for our meat and cheese trays. Walnut Creek is of the highest standard, so you can be assured that you are getting a quality product! We have two sizes of meat and cheese trays…..large $57.99 and small $37.99. Each one allows you to choose three meats and three cheeses. They also come with your choice of mustard and mayonnaise or Miracle Whip!

Cookie trays are also very popular this time of year! You can choose a couple of cookies or do a variety. We bake fresh every day Chocolate Chunk, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Lemon Cooler, Ginger Molasses, Sugar, White Chocolate Macadamia, Coconut Pecan, Pumpkin, Raisin, Peanut Butter, and M & M. Yum!

Don’t forget our veggie and fruit trays! We custom make these with the freshest produce! They come with dips of your choice as well!

Our produce area will be stocked up tomorrow! We still have WV tomatoes and local Kennebec potatoes. There are many types of Ohio apples as well! I’ve been getting one or two of each kind each week! They are all delicious!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite days of the year! We have so many blessings and are grateful for so many things. I’m sure you feel the same! At Huck’s we are thankful for our wonderful customers. We hope you have a wonderful day full of good food, good people, and a nice nap!

Huck’s will be closing on Wednesday this week at 4:00, so all our employees can celebrate Thanksgiving. We will reopen Friday at 9:00 a.m. for Black Friday!

One of our favorite traditions at home is to watch “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”, which originally aired on November 20, 1973, and “This Is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers” which came out in 1988.

“We should just be thankful for being together. I think that’s what they mean by ‘Thanksgiving,’ Charlie Brown.” — Marcie….I think Marcie has it right!

Norwood United Methodist Church is offering a free Thanksgiving meal for pick up or delivery on Thursday. Reservations can be made starting on Sunday, Nov. 19 and must be made by Wednesday, Nov. 22. Here is an article that gives more information. What a wonderful way to serve our community! God bless you and your church!

Here is a little Thanksgiving trivia for you all! In 1953, Swanson’s had 260 tons of frozen turkeys left after Thanksgiving….they decided to use them by putting a whole dinner in an aluminum tray…those were the first TV dinners! Butterball has a hotline for all your turkey problems and questions! Lol. The largest turkey weighed 86 pounds. Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest pizza night of the year! And the average person only gains 1 pound on Thanksgiving, so eat all your favorites! (protocol80.com)

Here’s what’s happening inside the market….

Rolls and pies! We are still taking orders! We will also make sure to have extra pies and rolls laid out for those of you who like to pick out your own! Just another reminder that we will be closing at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, so be sure to stop in before then! We wouldn’t want you to be without your favorite pie on Thanksgiving!

Don’t forget the noodles! We have the best noodles from Mrs. Miller and Walnut Creek. They come in wide, medium, and thin. We also have chicken broth from Walnut Creek to help you make the best noodles possible!

Thank you to St.Mary’s Elementary for doing a Thanksgiving Pie Fundraiser! We enjoyed working with you!

Do you know someone who would like a more traditional Christmas gift, or someone who has everything? Think about a gift basket or box from Huck’s! These custom made gifts can include fruit, gift cards, jellies, specialty mustards, crackers, smoked sausages, cheeses, chocolates, pretzels, candies, etc. We can make one to match any budget, and you can include anything you want!

Newsletter #58: Nov. 11-18

Happy Veterans Day! Many schools in our area had assemblies on Thursday to honor and celebrate the many veterans in our local communities. We got to hear from three wonderful individuals at MHS: Mr. Brian Welch (Ag teacher at MHS and Army Veteran), his wife, Mrs. Amy Welch (owner of Welch’s Urgent Care in Caldwell and Army Veteran), and Mr. James Waybright (retiree and now a substitute at MHS and Air Force and Army Veteran). The tunnel at MHS between the main building and the gym/auditorium has been dedicated to Mr. Waybright and is now called The James Waybright Corridor. We are so thankful for all of the brave men and women who serve and have served in one of our mighty military branches! We appreciate your service and sacrifice, and we support and love you!

I found some interesting facts about this special day. The Department of Defense is the largest employer in the United States. Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day which celebrated the end of WWI which ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Also, did you know that there is no apostrophe in Veterans Day? Approximately 75% of all veterans served during wartime and only 25% during times of peace. And finally….there are over 16 million veterans living today, so please take the time to thank a veteran and support causes that help them!

The Interact Club at MHS has decided to focus on Veterans this year for our service projects. One project that is ongoing that I would love for you all to help us with is coupon collecting. We have adopted an Air Force base this school year in Spangdahlem, Germany. Our goal is to send coupons to the families at this base twice this school year. They can use coupons that have already expired, and they can use them interchangeably. For example, if they have a coupon for Cheerios, they could use it for a different cereal if they want. Overall, I think it’s a great program, and I love to think that we can do a small gesture that can make a big difference to our military personnel and their families! If you would like to help us, please drop off coupons to Huck’s, and I’ll make sure they get added with the ones the high school collects. You can learn more at https://ocpnet.org/. Thank you!

The Goellers are celebrating two birthdays in our house this week! Sydney is turning 8 today on Veterans Day, and Seth is going to be 15 on Tuesday! They are both big blessings to both Jim and me! Happy Birthday to you both! Your mother loves you so much! (Not that they are reading my newsletters….Lol.)

Here’s our update for outside….

The pie pumpkins and gourds we have are now just 50 cents each! Come and grab a armload!

Remember that the fall is a great time to reflect on last year’s garden. What grew well, what didn’t? Do you have a new type of perennial or vegetable you would like to grow? Does a plant need thinned out or a new spot with more sun or shade? Sometimes it’s nice to just relax and think about your garden without the pressure to get something done!

Here’s what’s happening on the inside….

Order your Thanksgiving pies! Here is a list of our yummy pies: Apple, Country Cinnamon Apple, Dutch Apple, Caramel Apple Walnut, Apple Walnut, Red Raspberry, Boysenberry, Pumpkin, Blueberry, Blackberry, Cherry, Pineapple Upside Down, Peach, Strawberry Rhubarb, Pecan, Chocolate Cream, and Coconut Cream! We are now taking orders! Call us at 740-373-2484.

You can also order fresh baked rolls (individual or pan rolls) and our homemade Cranberry Relish. You can order the cranberries with walnuts or without. We could also add some celery if you want a little bit of a crunch. Either way, it’s tasty! If you are still on the fence, ask for a spoonful at the deli, and see what you think!

We have another craft night coming on Friday, December 1st. We are offering two fun crafts that night! Check out the description below!

For those of you who like the Cinnamon Imperials…..Walnut Creek has finally gotten these back in stock! I’m not sure if this will be for good or just through Valentine’s Day, but I just ordered some, and they will be here on Wednesday! Yay!

Don’t forget about our other items in our bakery! These are baked fresh each and every morning. There are cinnamon rolls, breads, all types of cookies, brownies, cupcakes, etc.

Our deli has any type of meat or cheese you would like! It’s almost time for those charcuterie boards to come out for the holidays! That’s an easy way to entertain! And with Huck’s being voted “Best Deli” by The Marietta Times Reader’s Choice Award, you know that you are getting the very best available!

Some of you have been asking for a sherbet, so Raspberry Sherbet has arrived! I haven’t tried it, but Jim said it is VERY good. That’s saying something, because Jim’s favorite his whole life has always been Old Fashioned Vanilla. Sherbet only has about 1-2% dairy where ice cream has a least 10%. It also includes citric acid which makes it nice and tart! Pucker up for some Raspberry Sherbet in a cone or cup!

Our produce area is looking good! We are still able to get many different types of apples. In fact, we just in Rome apples and a shipment of Cortland. Apples are one of the best snacks, especially when you add a little caramel dip, peanut butter, or a little piece of salty cheese! Yum!

We are also still enjoying some WV homegrown tomatoes. These tomatoes have been babied through the frosts, so take advantage of these tasty fruits while you still can!

Local Kennebec potatoes from Lowell are available in both 10 and 50 pound bags. These creamy potatoes are great for mashing, stews, baked, boiled, etc. With a 50 pound bag, you will be sure to have potatoes for the winter!

Soup’s on! Here’s our tentative weekly menu:

Monday: Chicken Noodle, Chili

Tuesday: Vegetable beef, Creamy Potato

Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper, Chicken with Wild Rice

Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Sausage Tortellini

Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Clam Chowder

Sew Cute Scrunchies restocked with some Christmas scrunchies! These make great stocking stuffers or pick one up now to wear with holiday outfits or at a Christmas celebration.

Our craft area is full of items for anytime, items for Fall, and items for Christmas. There are more items that still need to be put out, but as of right now, there is no room!

As the holidays are approaching, be sure to try seasonings and spices from Blue Heat and Sage and Co., candles from Duck Creek Candle Co., stationary and other small gifts from Forever Caroline, and soaps and scrubs from Cornerstone Homestead! The one thing you can guarantee when you buy from these small businesses, you are getting high quality and you are helping our local economy!

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.

Craft #2 is a snowflake wreath using artificial tree limbs, a big wooden snowflake, and a big buffalo check bow! These will both be so fun to do! And the cost is only $60 and that includes everything you need for both crafts! Pictures of a similar craft is posted down below! Please sign up by Monday, November 27, so Duffy can get prepared!

Newsletter #57: Nov. 3-10

It’s the first full week of November, and it’s time to turn back your clocks tonight! I enjoy getting more light in the morning, but I do not look forward to the dark evenings. Here is an interesting fact about daylight saving time….Benjamin Franklin actually came up with the idea about a century before it was adopted by any country. He thought it would save money because it would conserve candle wax. He also thought the dark mornings would make people stay in bed and be lazy (mentalfloss.com).

We have two craft nights that just got scheduled! We will be doing a Fall craft/Thanksgiving centerpiece craft night (adorable!) on Friday, November 10th, and TWO delightful Christmas crafts in one night on Friday, December 1st! I’ll be posting the details down below, so be sure to check that out!

Don’t forget to exercise your right to vote on Tuesday, November 7th! Cam got trained to work the polls last week for Youth at the Booth, so I know he’s excited to get to do that! We are so fortunate to live in a country where our votes do count, and we can vote however we want! God Bless America!

Here’s our update for outside!

First of all, all of us at Huck’s would like to say thank you for a great Spring, Summer, and Fall! We love when the outside is full of color and beautiful blooms! We hope to keep growing the greenhouse area of Huck’s every year!

Ol’ Tom Turkey/Mr. Gobbles ,the inflatable turkey, is back outside! He’s getting all of us here at Huck’s in the mood for Turkey Day on November 23rd!

There are a few pie pumpkins left for 99 cents each! Grab one or two for your Thanksgiving table decor!

This time of year, the inside is where it’s a happening!

Want a less stressful lead up to Thanksgiving? Let Huck’s take the stress off of you by letting us do your baking! Our pan rolls come in packs of 10, and our individual rolls come by the 1/2 dozen. Here is a list of our yummy pies: Apple, Country Cinnamon Apple, Dutch Apple, Caramel Apple Walnut, Apple Walnut, Red Raspberry, Boysenberry, Pumpkin, Blueberry, Blackberry, Cherry, Pineapple Upside Down, Peach, Strawberry Rhubarb, Pecan, Chocolate Cream, and Coconut Cream! We are now taking orders! Call us at 740-373-2484.

In case you missed National Sandwich Day yesterday, stop in today or this week and get a fresh sandwich, flatbread, or sub at our Deli Sandwich Shop! There are so many combinations that you are sure to find one that is your favorite!

NEW ITEM ALERT! Our super popular Cranberry Salad will be in the Deli starting on Monday! This classic recipe can come with or without pecans. You can get it in an individual size, 1/2 lb., 1 lb, or 2 lb. container. We will make sure we have a full supply from now through Christmas! MMMMMM!

Here’s the menu for our from scratch daily soups for this upcoming week:

Monday: Chicken Noodle, Soup Beans with Ham
Tuesday: Creamy Potato, White Chicken Chili
Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper, Cream of Mushroom
Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Grandma’s Tomato Soup
Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Creamy Potato with Ham

It’s the beginning of the month, so looks for restocks from many of our small business partners! Duck Creek Candle Co., Cornerstone Homestead, Sew Cute Scrunchies, and Sage and Co. all have been in or will be in the next day or so to stock up and freshen up and add to their inventory! These small business owners are just the best people, and we are proud to do business with them!

Yoder’s Good Health Recipe Tonic is back in stock!

Take a look at the pretty crafts to get some ideas for Christmas gifts or for a treat for yourself! We all work hard and deserve something that we like every once in a while.

Even if it is November and the weather is chilly, ice cream is never out of season! Our flavors right now include: Pumpkin Pie, Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate, Strawberry, Mint Chocolate Chip, Kentucky Praline, Cherry Nut, and Campfire Marshmallow. Get a cup or a cone!

Newsletter #56: Oct. 28-Nov. 3

Another month is ready to end! How is that possible? We better enjoy one last warm weekend, because starting on Monday, it looks like we won’t see temps in the 70’s for quite a while! The old wive’s tale about the willy worms I saw last year wasn’t correct, but I have seen some all black ones around my house! I also saw a Facebook post on the Harmar Village page about the height of wasp’s nests. The higher the wasp’s nest means the higher the snow. The old saying goes “See how high the hornet’s nest, ‘twill tell how high the snow will rest.” According to people who shared their pictures, there were some very high wasp nests. We shall see!

I have to give a quick shout out to our Fall MHS sports teams! The Girls Tennis team sent Olivia Emery (my sweet, little cousin!) and Jenna Jackson to States at Wooster College, Cross Country has made it to regionals, Saylor Wharff made it to States in Girls Golf, Volleyball is in the Districts Semifinal today, Girls Soccer has won Districts, Boys Soccer made it to the District Semifinals, Football made it to the playoffs for the 2nd time in school history, Marietta Marquettes and Cheer both did amazing at their first fall competition, and Boys Golf sent Owen Heslop and Zach Birge to the Districts as well. It’s a great time to be a Tiger!

The 7th grade teachers at MHS have a lot of fun each year on Costume Day by dressing up like the characters of the game CLUE (which is my all time favorite board game)! This was my 3rd year going as Mrs. White, the maid, although my costume looks a little more like Amelia Bedilia. Lol. We read alibis to the students, and they have to figure out “whodunit”. Kids can get prizes for figuring it out. Mr. VanReeth works hard to put this all together, so kudos to him!

Do you like a good fright? Here is a list of alleged haunted places in Marietta…..#1. The Anchorage….built in 1859 by Douglas Putnam for his wife, Eliza, and then it was turned into a nursing home…..#2 The Lafayette Hotel….they say the ghosts are friendly on the 3rd floor….#3 Mount Cemetery….you will find the great big Native American mound in the middle and more graves of Revolutionary War veterans than in any other cemetery in the United States….#4….Tiber Way….a place for patients with tuberculosis in the early 1900’s. You can even see the faded words “Chronic Diseases” at the top!….#5….Buckley Island….only accessible by boat, this island originally was used to quarantine people with deadly, infectious diseases, meaning if you went to Buckley Island, you weren’t coming back. Then, it became an amusement park for 10 years until it was destroyed in a flood in 1907…. All you have to do is Google “Haunted Marietta, Ohio” and you will find all kinds of websites if you want to read more. Believe it or not, lots of ghost hunters come to Marietta to film these haunts! Spooky!

We hope you bring your kiddos to the Kid’s Halloween Fun Day at Huck’s today (Saturday) from 2:00-5:00 p.m.! You can come anytime during the 3 hours, and you don’t have to feel like you have to stay the whole time! Here’s what we have planned:

Halloween slime (gooey!)….Ghost hunt (scary!….not really, it’s Tootsie Pop suckers made into ghosts. Ha!) ….Sugar Cookie Decorating (yummy!)….Pie Pumpkin Painting (spooky!)….Coloring Contest (creepy!) Spiderweb Craft (ghastly!)….Nail Painting (ghoulish! this one is Sydney’s idea!)….and a Dance Party (groovy!)! Plus, who doesn’t love the song “Monster Mash”?!

Here’s our outside update….

There are still some pie pumpkins, exotic pumpkins, and carving pumpkins left.

Gourds are only 75 cents. How cute would these be on your Thanksgiving table?

Thanks to all of you for a great Fall season! We sold more mums this year than last year, so that’s exciting! I hope yours are still looking great! My pineapple mum has now variegated into the prettiest pink, my white mums have also turned into pink on the edges, and my deep pink has opened up wide with sunny, yellow centers!

Look for our inflatable Tom Turkey to come out on Wednesday! Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!

Here’s what is going on inside the market….

Apples and apple cider are still aplenty! We have 1/2 Peck bags of Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Fuji, and Granny Smith. You can also find those kinds plus Mutzu, Paula Red, McIntosh, and Gala. What about a big bag of each for some variety! You know what they say…..An apple day keeps the doctor away!

The Walnut Creek cider in the glass jars have been a hit! You can find Granny Smith Apple, Apple, Peach, and Cinnamon Apple.

Don’t forget about Haney’s Kettle Corn! We have Candy Bar, Jalapeño, Monster Mash, Original, and Caramel Corn. Yum!

You may want to pick up a few caramel apples or from scratch cupcakes for your Halloween parties!

We will have Yoder’s Good Health Recipe tonic on Wednesday. Glad you all are liking the benefits of the Apple Cider Vinegar plus the 20 herbs! Down the hatch it goes!

Mister Bee’s has come out with a 1951 recipe potato chip, and we have bags of it for $2.99 at Huck’s! Growing up, Mister Bee’s potato chips were always in our cupboard. When my dad was a little boy, having a bag of Mister Bee’s and a Coca-Cola was a real treat! He told himself that when he got older and made his own money, he would always keep a bag of Mister Bee’s potato chips in his house, and he stuck to that! In fact, there is still always a bag of Mister Bee’s chips at my mom’s house!

Don’t worry….even as the weather gets colder, we will still have Velvet ice cream. It’s the best!

We are ready to start serving Ice Cream Soda Floats! Come in and get one made using our Old-Fashioned Kutztown sodas. You could get Orange Cream, Root Beer, Ginger Beer, or Red Cream. I think I will try the Orange Cream first with two scoops of Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. What a treat! Cost is $3.99 for a 20 oz. float.

The bakery has been smelling wonderfully! Our fabulous bakers are busy keeping fresh baked items on our shelves and in our sandwich shop daily! Thank you all!

We have 50 lb. bags of Kennebec potatoes waiting for a home! They are $31.99. Wouldn’t it be nice to get all stocked up for the winter?

Do you need a Christmas flag for your house or garden? We have some adorable ones! We have small sizes for your garden, and we have big ones to hang on a flag pole on your house.

Don’t forget to check out our seasonings and dips here at Huck’s! We have delicious seasonings made locally by Sage and Co. and Blue Heat! Lots of dip packets from Walnut Creek are available with flavors like Dill, Southwest, etc. We are going to be adding to this section soon for the holiday season!

Now that the weather is going to be getting cooler, we all have to contend with drier skin. We have a great remedy for this…..Cornerstone Homestead goat milk soaps. These soaps add moisture to your skin without irritating it. They can also help treat acne, and I’ve even read they can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Not that any of us would need it for wrinkle repair, right?

If you are needing a little gift for someone, we have the perfect something. Whether it be a notepad or cards from Forever Caroline, a candle from Duck Creek Candle Co., a gift card, or a craft, there are lots of things to choose from.

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.

How are you all doing? Don’t you love fall?The fall foliage map was right! The leaves are looking so pretty right now!

Last night was the big rivalry game between Marietta and Warren! Many people braved the chilly temps and the off and on drizzle to cheer on either the Tigers or the Warriors at Don Drumm Stadium! What a great game! It was tied 14-14 at halftime, and After a hard fought battle on the gridiron, the Tigers are on top this year with a score of 28-24! Great game!

The Zimmerview Beef and Freezer raffle sponsored by the Marietta Tigers Athletic Boosters was drawn last night at halftime. And the winner is……….Peter Tome! Congratulations! You will get a phone call today to get all the details of getting your meat and freezer! Thanks everyone for supporting this fundraiser!

There are a couple of fun trunk or treat events to tell you about for tomorrow evening (October 22nd). The Marietta First Church of the Nazarene is sponsoring a trunk or treat from 6-8 pm. There will be balloon animals, kettle corn popcorn, a fire, and of course of candy! Up the hill you can trunk or treat with a Tiger at Marietta High School! Some of the Tiger sports teams are decorating trunks and passing out candy!

Audrey joined 87 of her 8th grade classmates for an amazing trip to Gettysburg, PA the last few days! She had the best time and learned a lot! Thank you to all the teachers and the administration for making this trip so special for those kids. I know that’s a lot of work to get a trip like that planned! Those are great memories to make with your classmates!

Here’s our update for outside the market….

Jim’s still blowing leaves. Ha!

We got a new shipment of pumpkins! You should see the size of some of these beauties! I took some pictures, but it’s hard to see the size of them. Cam, Izzy, and Syd carved a few of them at home, and Jim’s going to carve some pumpkins for outside at Huck’s!

Here’s the history behind the Jack-o-lantern! It comes from an old Irish myth about a man named Jack. He tricked the devil and was condemned to walk the earth at night with a turnip lantern. Irish families originally carved turnips and placed them on their windowsills to prevent “Jack of the lantern” and other creepy ghouls from going into their homes at night. Irish immigrants in America switched from turnips to pumpkins, and that’s how this age old tradition of carving Jack-o-lanterns began! (howstuffworks.com)

If you are planning a bonfire, grab a few bales of straw to sit on! That sounds like a fun night doesn’t it?!

Here are the prices for outside:

XXL pumpkins $7.99

Gourds $0.50-$1.49

Pie Pumpkins $1.99

Straw bales $9.99

Halloween Fun Day for Kids on Saturday, October 27th from 2:00-5:00 p.m.! Looking for something fun to do on Trick-or-Treat during the afternoon? Huck’s will be hosting some fun activities on the side porch! Lots of times the kids are so excited for trick-or-treat, and they get bored in the afternoon waiting…..and parents don’t know what to do with them. We will have lots of different stations and activities for the kids to do. Here’s our plan so far: friendship bracelets, coloring contest, mini pumpkin painting, cookie decorating, Halloween slime, a couple of fun games, and a Halloween craft. Activities will be for kids Preschool-6th grade. Also, you don’t have to stay the whole time! It’s also free!

Here’s what’s happening inside at the market……

New crafts have arrived! Yay!! There are things for fall and things for Christmas! It’s funny how trends come and go! Last year at Christmas it was all about the old pick up trucks, Buffalo checks, and bows. This year the trend has shifted to vintage Santas and a woodland theme. I saw lots of reindeer, wooden snowflakes, and it was much more simplistic. I was able to find some beautiful things! I bought more than we could fit, so look for some new things to keep coming out!

I love the Smith Redware Pottery! It’s made in Ohio. This type of pottery is all handmade, and it’s hard to find! I was able to get some small little plates, plenty of ornaments , and one large holly berry plate. These are great collector items, and they are heirlooms! Check out their website. What a talented couple! smithredware.com

Yummy caramel apples are here as long as we’ve got delicious, local Ohio apples. With nuts seems to be your all’s favorite, but we always make some plain ones as well!

From scratch pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting have been a hit!

We always have some from scratch cupcakes from Beth Huck! This week we’ve had Carrot Cake and Chocolate Wedding Cake. Divine! You know……she makes custom made cakes as well!

Check out the beautiful Amish sweet peppers! There are also red, yellow, and green bell peppers too! They are only $1.49 lb. I’m thinking I’ll make Seth’s favorite this week….stuffed peppers!

Here’s next week’s soup schedule!

Monday: Chicken Noodle, Soup Beans with Ham
Tuesday: Creamy Potato, White Chicken Chili
Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper, Cream of Mushroom
Thursday: Chicken Noodle, Grandma’s Tomato Soup
Friday: Cheesy Broccoli, Creamy Potato with Ham

We have been giving out cider samples. Be sure to try a little swig! There are individual pints of cider in the cooler which would be perfect if you don’t want a gallon. They are only $2.49.

Forever Caroline has brought in some adorable tote bags. These are the perfect size for carrying all sorts of things! Check them out!

We are beginning to get calls for Christmas gift and fruit baskets. We will start to post a flyer next week. We can custom make these to fit your budget and needs. We work with businesses as well as individuals! We can deliver or ship USPS to anywhere in the US.

If you haven’t tried Florence Creamery’s milk yet, you are in for a real treat. Once you try it, you will be hooked on the richness and freshness of this great product! We are so blessed to have such a high end quality milk in our area! Yum yum!

Huck’s carries 5 different types of dried beans. You can find black, pinto, green split, great northern, and one more that I can’t remember! It’s definitely time for soup beans, so pick up your choice!

Huck’s can do all sorts of custom made meat, cheese, veggie, fruit, cookie, and sandwich trays.

Hi, everyone! I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful fall weather! I was checking the Fall Foliage Map for 2023, and it looks like the next week or two is going to be the peak time for the beautiful leaves. Which color is your favorite? I love maples! My two favorites are the bright orange and the red.

Last Thursday was Farmer Appreciation Day! Each American farm produces enough food to feed 165 people. There were 7 million farms in the U.S. in 1935 and now there are 2.2 million. Commercial egg farmers produce 165 billion eggs per year! It takes 150 yards of wool to make enough stuffing for a baseball. The average dairy cow produces over 6 gallons of milk a day which calculates to 46,000 glasses of milk per year! (stacker.com) Thank you, farmers! We love and appreciate you all!

Here’s the update for outside!

Although there aren’t many mums, we will continue to keep stocked up on pumpkins! Look for another shipment to come mid week!

We finally got some bales of straw! They are $9.99 each!

I’m leaving first thing this morning to get us some adorable crafts and decorations for the Christmas season. This is one of my favorite things to do for Huck’s! I get a chance to just look at pretty things and relax. Believe it or not, there are only 73 days until Christmas, and I noticed that some stores already have out Christmas things! Sydney got a couple of Christmas Toy magazines in the mail this week, and she’s already been writing letters to our elf on a shelf to give to Santa. So, I guess even if we aren’t ready to start thinking about Christmas, it will be here before we know it! I hope you will come in and check what we have soon! Everything will be out by the start of the week!

Duck Creek Candle Co. has informed me that they will have some cozy, homey holiday scents November 1st. Until then, enjoy flavors like Pumpkin Crunch and Blueberry Crumble. They smell so good!

Sage and Co. has come and restocked their delicious line of rubs and seasonings. Stop in and pick up one or two for the next time you make meat or veggies for dinner. They have Farmer’s Favorite Veggie Seasoning, Cowboy Caviar, Garlic Herb and Cheese Popcorn Seasoning, Appalachian Fish and Seafood Seasoning, and Sweet and Smoky BBQ Rub. They really are tasty!

We are excited to announce that the flavored popcorns from Haney’s Popcorn has arrived! We have flavors like Jalapeño,

If you like spicy foods, Blue Heat has added another seasoning to Huck’s. Not only do we have Devil’s Dust, you can also get Carolina Reaper. You can use these two seasonings on just about anything you want!

Since it is going to be a great time to go take a drive to look at the fall leaves, stop in and grab a salad or sandwich and some cookies and chips and have a little picnic. Maybe you could drive out Route 26 to the covered bridge out at Rinard Mills. My paternal grandmother, Mary Rinard, grew up in Rinard Mills, and it’s a beautiful part of Monroe County!

Cornerstone Homestead has brought in some delicious new meats for our freezer. Check out their local, farm raised ground chicken, apple maple breakfast links, and chicken kielbasa. Not only are you going to get a high quality product, but you are also helping to support two local businesses!

Coming soon!! Delicious ice cream floats! We are going to use our fizzy Kutztown Old Fashioned Sodas poured over our smooth Velvet Original Vanilla ice cream! You will be able to choose from Root Beer, Orange Cream, Red Cream, Ginger Beer, and Sasparilla! Oh, my! Doesn’t that sound heavenly?!

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.
