Newsletter #11: Dec 3rd-9th

Happy December, everyone! It’s the month of Christmas lights, Christmas cookies, and Christmas movies (I just watched the best Hallmark movie called “A Plum Pudding Mystery.” I highly recommend it!)! Most importantly for me, it is the month of enjoying all the people I love and my faith. On the Internet, I found a list of the Ultimate Christmas Bucket List. It has 45 fun activities to do this holiday season, and the Goeller Family has already checked off a few of them!

It’s going to be a pretty warm week with a high of 59 degrees on Wednesday! There is a good chance of rain towards the end of the week, and then it will get a little colder on Friday.

I need to do a quick Ohio State update. I was a little cocky last week, thinking that we were a shoe in to win. I will admit, I quit watching after the 3rd quarter. I couldn’t watch any more. Anyways, after that terrible game, there is still a good chance that the Buckeyes can still make it into the College Football Playoffs! Can you believe it??!! They will announce the teams on ESPN tomorrow (Sunday) at noon! Let’s all cross our fingers and toes!

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

Well, this was a whirlwind of a week, and our lights still aren’t up yet outside! BUT….Jim and I (and Sydney) are going to get them up this evening. Saturday date night! Lol.

There are still some beautiful live wreaths hanging outside waiting for your front door!

Here’s what is happening on the inside of Huck’s!

What a relaxing and fun evening we had last night during our Live Garland Class! The final product was absolutely beautiful! Thank you to all of you who came, to Merilee for teaching, and to Duffy for personalizing stockings and ornaments. Check out the pictures below!

For all of you out there, whose “Elf on a Shelf” came or is coming, ours came at home on Thursday. Her name is Snowflake. She has come to our home every December 1st for the past 10 years! Lol. Sydney had the idea that we needed to get an elf for Huck’s as well, so we got an elf, and she named him Chippy. So, Chippy will be watching everyone at Huck’s during the day and heading back to the North Pole at night. We will include pictures of Chippy in our weekly pictures up until Christmas.

I left early this morning and made a trip to get some more items for our craft and gift area. I got some more Christmas items, but I also got some really pretty things that are not seasonal. There are a couple of new lamps and some beautiful valances if you are wanting to spruce up your bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen!

We are now carrying wonderful smelling candles from the Duck Creek Candle Co.! These candles have the most beautiful labels, and there are all sorts of delightful scents like Granny’s House, Hansel and Gretel, and Raspberry Vanilla. Plus, they are a local business! Here is a write up from them:

We sold out again of the Zimmerview’s ground beef and sausage, but we have a large order coming in on Monday!

Our bakery is busy making lots of Christmas cookies and other goodies! Please come in and try something new or stick with your very favorites. There are also Christmas candies and plenty of snack choices.

Check out all our Christmas gift boxes and baskets! There will be some this week to buy off the shelf!

I don’t know about you, but I love a planner. I know it would probably be more convenient to just use the calendar on my phone, but I still love to stay organized with a handwritten planner. My very favorite is the Engagement Planner by Lang. (My sister and I have used them for 20+ years!) They have the most beautiful pictures and styles. Today, we just put out Lang wall calendars, Engagement Planners, and some boxes of Christmas cards. I hope you like them as much as I do!

EVENTS

Saturday, December 10th: Huck’s Farm Market Annual Christmas Open House

We have been working hard to get this day planned and ready, and we are hoping that you are able to take a little time to stop in next Saturday!

We will have lots of samples of different deli salads (we are going to try a few new ones and see what you think!), cheeses, meats, crackers, jellies, cookies, soups, etc.

There will be warm apple cider with Aspen Mulled Spices as well as some hot chocolate with marshmallows (or without)!

We will have different drawings that you can enter as well. Drawings will be Saturday afternoon for a free sub sandwich, full-size pie of your choice, custom made Christmas t-shirt, 24 oz. candle, and a Christmas tumbler.

Duffy Sprague from Duffy’s Designs will be able to personalize stockings and shirts and Merilee will have some handmade live garland to buy.

Just a quick note: We are going to heat and block off the seating area outside for these activities, but that being said, you may still want to wear a coat and have your kids wear a coat, so everyone stays warm.

Newsletter #10: Nov. 26-Dec. 2

Hello! It’s officially time for Christmas!! The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas can be so busy, but in my opinion, like the song says, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!” Hopefully, you have been able to take advantage of the warmer temperatures! I spent yesterday getting up all the Christmas decorations inside our house (except for our live Christmas tree….we are hoping to get that up and decorated this evening), but my outside looks like Fall came and went. Everything is brown and looks like its better days were way in the past. I’m hoping we will have time in the next couple of days to get that cleaned up and get the lights up outside!

If we don’t have any time to do that today, it’s for a couple of good reasons! #1: It’s Small Business Saturday! We have some sales going on at the market! *40% off all Fall Crafts/decor/gifts *20% off Christmas/decor/gifts *10% off Holiday Pie orders * These sales only last through today, and we are open until 5:00 p.m.! Hope to see ya there!

Reason #2: The Buckeyes are playing *ichigan at noon! What an exciting game it will be! Buckeyes are ranked #2 and the Wolverines (BOO!) are ranked #3. I know we are going to win! Actually, if you ask Alexa, she will tell you that the Buckeyes are favored to win by 8. I checked up if there are any tickets left. Looks like you could still go for about $500 for a ticket by yourself. My mom turns 76 today, and the best present for her would be an Ohio State W-I-N today!

Here’s what’s happening at the market outside!

If you look at the front, you will see all sorts of live Christmas wreaths. Some of them have red velvet bows already attached, and some have berries and pine cones on them. We do have some already made up bows on the inside and will have some ribbon for you crafty customers who like to make your own bows! Nothing looks more welcoming than a pretty Christmas wreath with a pretty, big bow!

Jim’s been working outside getting everything cleaned up and ready for Christmas. He’s got big plans for lights and hopes that those will up and ready in the next few days.

On the inside, there’s lots to discuss as well!

Poinsettias! I love a Christmas poinsettia! We have pretty red and creamy white ones. We have them in 4″ and 6″ pots. They would be perfect at your office desk, on your holiday table, or somewhere else to show some festivity! Poinsettias are a delicate flower that originated in Mexico, so they don’t like the cold! Just a reminder that poinsettias can be harmful to cats. I just read that the sap can cause irritation to a cat’s mouth and esophagus.

Jim just got back with another load of Ohio apples! Here’s what he was able to get during this round: Mutsu, Pink Lady, Cortland, and Golden Delicious. We still have plenty of Granny Smith and McIntosh. He’s also going to be going again later this week to pick more up. Apples are slowing down this time of year, so come on in and grab some up while you still can!

Christmas candies have arrived! There are candy platters, different types of mints, and pretty decorated chocolate covered pretzels. There are caramels, and of course the favorite Dutch Delights, which are premium Amish made chocolates. There are even Sugar Free options. With all of our yummy baked goods, Huck’s has you covered for all your holiday splurges!

We are still taking your orders for holiday gift baskets/boxes and fruit baskets/boxes! They are so pretty and make a nice gift for someone who has everything, because cheeses, smoked sausages, crackers, jellies, and chocolates will not go to waste! They are also a great option for someone who lives far away, and we will take care of the shipping for ya!

Here are the types of party trays that we offer in both small and large sizes: Vegetable Tray, Sliced Cheese Tray, Chunked Cheese Tray, Meat and Cheese Tray, Condiment Tray, Sandwich Tray, and Cookie Tray. We can customize these to fit your tastes and preferences! Think of Huck’s if you are in charge of bringing something to a church gathering, a work party, a family get together, or even if you are hosting your own Christmas party!

EVENTS:

Friday, December 2nd: Christmas Pine Garland/Place Setting Class

If you are looking for a fun evening out that’s a little different, please join us next Friday night! Merilee Burton will be teaching us how to make a 3 ft.

There will be cookie decorating, a Santa Advent Calendar craft, an Angel Tree Topper craft, slime making (Sorry to the parents! Ha!), a coloring contest, and some holiday games! All these activities will be free for kids! I’m sure you agree with me, that there is nothing better than happy kids during the Christmas season! They really do make it special!

Newsletter #9: November 19-25

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!! Jim and I hope that you all have some time over the next week to count your blessings, be with your families, relax, and do some things you enjoy! I know that is what we are looking forward to doing over the Holiday weekend!

I usually always mention something about the weather, so…..what a cold and snowy week we had! I think I saw snowflakes most days last week, and I still can’t believe that we had snow on the ground before Thanksgiving! I can’t remember the last time that happened. Sydney went sled riding down our hill as soon as she got home from school yesterday. Of course, her sled hardly moved (Ha!), but she was still happy!

I have to say a big shout out to all the ladies who came out last night for our Thanksgiving Centerpiece class. Everyone had fun, laughed, and left with a beautiful flower arrangement! Thank you so much for being a part of our very first class! And a big THANK you to Merilee (you are a great teacher!) and Duffy who both helped me so much. This class wouldn’t have happened without them. There’s nothing like a girls’ night out! Check out the picture below!

Here’s our weekly update for outside…..

I love when it is time to get our Christmas decorations up at home, and we are really excited to get them up at the market! It will help to brighten some things up while we wait for flower season and Spring.

Inside is where all the action is this time of year! Here’s what you can find…..

We have a nice display set up with examples of Christmas gift baskets and boxes. There are several different sizes, and we can customize them as well. Pretty soon we will have some out ready to sell right off the shelf. We are taking orders for these as we speak!

Duffy Sprague from Duffy’s Designs has brought in some adorable Christmas items for you all! There are Christmas mugs and shirts (with such a quality design and material!) and tumblers and ornaments and blankets and garden flags! It’s all really cute and well done. We can also take orders for things that you see or if you want something different. She’s very talented!

We have some smaller white and orange pumpkins in the produce section for $1.50. They would be really pretty on your Thanksgiving table on Thursday if you are looking for an inexpensive way to dress it up. We have a few bundles of Indian corn for $1.00 and some bittersweet for a quarter. There are also some runners and other Fall items to add to a pretty place setting!

We still have some Ohio apples! We had the sweetest, young teacher (and a former student of mine) take home a bushel of the Winesap apples to make some homemade Apple Pie filling. Doesn’t that just sound so yummy! Have fun with that, Megan!

Now, on to the bakery! We are getting lots of orders for Thanksgiving pies but would still be able to fill your order as well! Here is the list again of our pies: Apple, Caramel Apple Walnut, Dutch Apple, Apple Cinnamon, Cherry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Very Berry, Peach, Pecan, Strawberry Rhubarb, Pecan, Pumpkin, Chocolate Cream, and Coconut Cream. Please get your order in as soon as you can, but you can still pre-order up until Tuesday! Also, just a reminder that Wednesday we will be closing at 4:00 p.m., so plan accordingly!

The deli and sandwich shop is buzzing! Stop in for a sandwich, sub, garden salad, deli salad, and/or soup this week when you are too busy to cook! Plus, if you are like me…..I say NO cooking supper on Wednesday night (maybe Tuesday night too!)….there’s too much to make for Thanksgiving Day! Lol.

I do want to highlight the Cranberry Salad that we are making homemade. It’s a really tasty recipe. We are offering samples over the next couple of days, and you can try it and see what you think. Then, you can order some for your Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas gatherings over the next month!

EVENTS:

November 25th-26th: Black Friday (open 9-6:30)/Small Business Saturday (open 9-5)!

It’s almost time for the best shopping days of the year! Unless, you don’t like going out on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday (I can understand that!) BUT…..Please stop in to take advantage of some of the sales happening at Huck’s for the two days after Thanksgiving! ****All Fall crafts/decor/gifts will be 40% off! We need to get items moved to make some more room for Christmas items. ****All Christmas crafts/decor/gifts are 20% off!

Newsletter #8: November 12th-18th

Hello! How are you all doing? Wow! What a change in the weather! We have had two rainy, dreary days. And what about that temperature change! Looks like it will be a high in the 40s all week with lows in the upper 20s or lower 30s. Brrrrr! May be time to get an extra blanket on the beds! The Goeller Family has two birthdays this week. Our littlest, Sydney, turned 7 yesterday on Veteran’s Day, and our 2nd oldest, Seth, turns 14 on Monday. I’m sure that you can relate that time flies in life, and sometimes you wish it would just slow down!

I also want to take a moment to give a shout out to our Marietta High School Fall programs. We had such great seasons this year, and school was so fun this week with a pep rally and a send off for the Lady Soccer Team’s appearance at the Final Four! We have had 3 teams send players to state this fall (Lady Tennis, Cross Country, and Lady Soccer) and our Vocal Point left to compete in a National Competition this weekend in Dayton. Jim and I both graduated from Marietta (Class of ’97….Straight from Heaven. Lol.), and I’m in my 4th year of teaching Spanish at MHS!

Weekly update on the outside……

Things have been getting cleaned up out front at the market! Everyone has been working hard getting things put away from the flower season. We’ve had a fun fall with the pumpkins and flowers, but it’s time to look forward to the holiday season! Hopefully, you have gotten a chance to see our inflatable turkey out front. He lights up at night too!

We are getting our plans ready for what’s to come outside, so be looking for some live wreaths in a couple of sizes to be coming very soon. We will have some Christmas bows to add to them as well! I love a live wreath with a pretty bow on my front door at Christmas time. It smells good, and I always leave mine up through the winter. It makes for a very homey and welcoming feeling.

Here’s what’s happening on in the inside!

Our bakery is buzzing with all sorts of breads, cookies, pies, fry pies, and Whoopie pies. There really is something for everyone!

We finally have our homemade from scratch mini banana and banana nut breads ready to start selling. Before we bought Huck’s, we started a small bakery during the pandemic called The Bread Basket Bakery. We have been trying to get our items added to Huck’s, but we’ve had a whirlwind of a Fall. We are happy that we finally have time and can add these items to our shelves.

If you are needing Thanksgiving pies, let us do your baking! You can call us at 740-373-2484, email us at hucksfarmmarket@gmail.com, or message us on Facebook to place your order. We will be open the day before Thanksgiving, but we will be closing at 4:00 p.m.

If you ordered a turkey or ham for Thanksgiving, it will be delivered this week. We will give you a call to let you know when it has arrived!

I’m going to be making some homemade dip packets for us. I’ve been gathering up some spices and recipes and am looking forward to sharing them with you! They are the kind of dip mixes that all you have to do is add mayo, cream cheese, sour cream, or something else equally as easy, and then stir! Then, take some veggies, or some type of chips, and you will be all ready for your holiday parties at work, home, or at a friend or family’s house. My goal is to be working on these all week and have them in the store next Saturday.

EVENTS:

November 25th-26th: Black Friday (open 9-6:30)/Small Business Saturday (open 9-5)!

As soon as all the turkey is eaten, and we all take that heavenly Thanksgiving nap, it will be time to start shopping for Christmas! Please stop in to take advantage of some of the sales happening at Huck’s for the two days after Thanksgiving! ****All Fall crafts/decor/gifts will be 40% off! We need to get items moved to make some more room for Christmas items. ****All Christmas crafts/decor/gifts are 20% off! We’ve got gift items galore! ****10% off all Holiday Pie orders! Pre-order for your December holiday gatherings early and enjoy a 10% discount. Must order on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday.

Friday, December 2nd: Christmas Pine Garland/Place Setting Class

Please consider joining us for our newest class! Merilee Burton is going to teach us how to make a live Christmas Pine Garland from start to finish. She is also going to show us how to embellish it and dress up our Christmas table settings with a cloth napkin Christmas tree (So adorable!). The cost is $60. Here is what you will get to complete this project: 3 ft. garland that you will make from hand-picked (by us! Ha!) pines and holly, a bow made by Merilee with your choice of ribbon (see below), matching ribbon to make tufts, 3 ft. battery operated soft white twinkle lights, personalized favor to take home, and a Christmas red cloth napkin. Duffy Sprague from Duffy’s Designs will also be there to show you items that she can customize for gifts. Refreshments will be provided, and the store will be open for shopping as well. We have room for 16 people, and we would love if you would sign up! Ask a friend, co-worker, or family member to join you, or sign up individually. We will have a fun time meeting new people and learning something new! We will have plastic gloves, but you may want to bring your own gardening gloves, so your hands don’t get all sticky. Please register, choose your ribbon, and pay by Sunday, November 27th to reserve your spot.

In this week’s pictures, I have added a picture with the ribbon choices for the class. I tried to pick a variety, so that everyone can choose one they like! When you sign up, please tell us which ribbon you would like, because Merilee is going to go ahead and make our bows ahead of time. #1: Natural Linen with Cardinals on Branches #2: Red and Black Buffalo Check #3: Natural Linen with Red Glitter Berries and Branches #4: Red Silk with White Snowflakes #5: Claire Plaid with Red, Green, Ivory, and Gold #6: Christmas Red Velvet (not pictured)

There will be lots of activities for kids to do, some drawings for prizes, and plenty of foods to sample! We will be able to customize shirts and personalize stockings. The kids can decorate cookies, color, do a craft, and play a couple of games.

Newsletter #7: November 5th-11th

Hello, everyone! I am sure that you are like me and can’t believe that it’s already November! This is one of my very favorite months for a lot of different reasons. There are so many things to be thankful for. I could list a million things, but I won’t bore you with that! But I know I speak for Jim and I both that we feel very grateful for the opportunity to purchase Huck’s, and we are very thankful for our wonderful employees and customers. I know it hasn’t been without its hiccups, but we’ve had about as easy of a transition as I think it could be. Mike and Susan have been so helpful too.

I also want to say Happy Veteran’s Day to all of the individuals who have served in the armed services. We have great respect for all of you, and we appreciate the sacrifice that you and your family made to help protect our freedom and our country. Don’t you just love America? There are many places in the world that don’t get to enjoy the freedoms and rights that we do. Which reminds me…..Tuesday is Election Day!

Also, tonight we get an extra hour of sleep!! Yay! Except after that, every night for who knows how long, we will all want to go to bed too early, because it will be so dark. Lol. That could possibly change though. This past March, the Senate passed a bill to end Daylight Saving Time. The bill has stalled in the House of Representatives though. They say if it doesn’t get passed before the end of the year, the Senate would have to bring it up as a bill again next year. Who knows?

Here’s our outside update………………

SALE!! SALE!! SALE!! SALE!!

12″ mums and hanging baskets are now $5.00! All other flowers are $1.00 each! Can’t beat that!

Come see our inflatable Thanksgiving turkey! He will get you in the mood for Turkey Day and maybe a turkey sub or some sliced turkey at the deli!

Here’s our weekly update for the inside…..

We have apples galore! Here’s a list of all the types we have: Winesap, McIntosh, Rome, Pink Lady, Evercrisp, Cortland, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Mutsu, Gala, Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Honeycrisp, and JonaGold. If you haven’t seen the Mutsu apples, they are gigantic. They are similar in taste to a Golden Delicious. We have 5 of the 6 apples that the Bon Appetit website says are the best for apples for baking. Their picks are JonaGold, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, Mutsu, Pink Lady, and Winesap. Hmmmm…..looks like I need to try some new baking recipes.

We still have homegrown green peppers, hot peppers, cabbage, tomatoes, and potatoes in stock. We have sold quite a bit of Kennebec potatoes, but we still have plenty. We also have all the produce that you would want at the grocery store with very comparable or even more reasonable prices.

You all have started taking advantage of the Zimmerview Farm Meats and Market ground beef and ground sausage. You can buy some at Huck’s for $6.50 lb. for the ground beef and $6.00 lb. for the ground sausage. Both are delicious, and you can sure taste the difference! You won’t be disappointed!

The bakery always keeps Huck’s smelling yummy. Whether it’s Sunflower Bread, Sub Sandwich Buns, Cinnamon Rolls, or Cookies, there is always a nice variety to choose from!

The sub shop has lots of choices for sandwiches, salads, and soups. We can make you up something for lunch, dinner, or sometime in between. There are lots of deli salads (macaroni, potato, German potato, mac and cheese, ham salad, chicken salad, Orange Pineapple Delight, and Cookies and Cream) as well.

We will have from scratch brownies out starting today! They are fudgy and so good! They are already cut and packaged into individual portions, but we won’t mind (or judge) if you buy more than one! You could even order an entire pan if you would like.

We are now taking orders for holiday pies: Apple, Apple Walnut, Dutch Apple, Apple Cinnamon, Cherry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Very Berry, Peach, Pecan, Strawberry Rhubarb, Pumpkin, Chocolate Cream, and Coconut Cream.

If you haven’t tried the milk from Florence Creamery, please do! It’s a cream topped milk, so when you buy some, you will want to shake it up before you use it. If you want to skim that cream off to use in your coffee, cooking, or baking, you can do that too. They also offer different flavors of milk. I have a friend who loves the Strawberry, and one of my sons loves the Birthday Cake. We just got in Pumpkin Pie, and it has gotten rave reviews so far! If you have a specific flavor you want us to order or hold back for you, just ask!

Each week, we are continuing to add items to get the store filled up. We are really trying our best to make Huck’s a place that you can come and do a good portion of your weekly grocery shopping. We appreciate the suggestions you have given so far for items you would like to see at the market, so please keep them coming!

EVENTS:

November 18th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.: Thanksgiving Pumpkin Centerpiece Class

This will be my last post about this fun evening! There will be 14 of us ladies plus Merilee Burton getting together for a fun evening making a beautiful pumpkin centerpiece. We have a couple of spots available and would love to have you join us! The cost is $55 and will include all the supplies you will need and some refreshments. You can also browse around the store as well. If you haven’t had a chance yet, ask one of your family members or friends to join you for a fun evening out! Please sign up by Friday (November 11th), so Merilee can get everything that we will need!

Next week, I will give you some finalized plans for our December events!

Deli Specials this Week:

Yellow American Cheese $3.99 lb.

Large Marble $4.99 lb.

Honey Ham $4.99 lb.

Online ordering for the Sandwich Shop is available.

Weekly Newsletter #6: October 29-November 4th

Hello, everyone! We are gearing up for a fun weekend! The weather is going to be beautiful for Saturday for those of you who are doing some Halloween festivities. Only a 3% chance of rain! How many times over the years have we gone trick-or-treating in cold, rainy weather? Or the years the Buckeyes would be playing a night game, and we would look through people’s windows to see a play or two of the game on their TVs. Ha! Those are fun memories to think about!

Here’s our weekly update for outside…..

We still have some big carving pumpkins. You will want to come soon, because they are almost gone! There are still some smaller pie pumpkins as well.

Many of you have been taking advantage of the BOGO sale on the fall mums and flowers. That sale will continue but look for those prices to get even cheaper very soon! It’s not too late to dress up or add to your already pretty Fall decorations. We still have a month until Thanksgiving, so let’s continue to enjoy the beautiful Fall that we have had!

It will be sad when everything is all gone outside, but we have some plans to liven it up outside for the holidays, so be on the look out for that!

Here is our update about the inside…..

There are still homegrown green peppers, hot peppers, cabbage, and tomatoes available! I’m sure you agree that nothing tastes as good as homegrown produce! Our time for getting homegrown veggies and fruits is dwindling, so pick some up while you still can.

Jim picked up some new varieties of apples! Yay! Some of you have been asking for these……Here are all the types that are at the market now: Winesap, McIntosh, Rome, Pink Lady, Evercrisp, Cortland, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Mutsu, Gala, Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Honeycrisp, and JonaGold. If you want to try a new kind, we have a spreadsheet at the register that can tell you all about each type.

It’s here, just as we promised!! Two days ago, we got our first delivery of Zimmerview Farm’s ground beef and ground sausage. What a great option for people wanting local, farm fresh meat without having to buy a large quantity at once! It is in our freezer at this time, so you will need to ask one of us at the market to get you some.

Who is busy? I’d say all of us! Let us save you some time on your stop to get deli meats and cheeses. If you would like to call ahead, we can get your meat and cheese sliced just how you want it, and it can be ready to go when you get to Huck’s!

We have plenty of jellies, jams, pickled foods, pasta sauce, canned fruits and canned veggies on our shelves. They come from Amish Wedding and Walnut Creek. They look so pretty with all the different colors and varieties.

Have you tried our from scratch pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting yet? They are divine! We baked quite a few last evening, so you will want to come in quickly. They are a hot selling item!

It is not too early to start to order pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. In fact, we just got our first orders last week! Here are all the types of pies that we offer: Apple, Apple Walnut, Dutch Apple, Cherry, Blackberry, Blueberry, Very Berry, Peach, Pecan, Strawberry Rhubarb, Pumpkin, Chocolate Cream, and Coconut Cream! One of each please!

On that note, we can also start to take orders for holiday gift baskets/boxes. We have 5 different price points with some different options. We can even ship them out for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if this is something you are interested in. We can even custom make baskets. We can do these for businesses or individuals. Look below for a picture of our gift basket/box flyer in our Facebook pictures for this week.

Our soups continue to be a very popular part of our sandwich shop. We just added Smoky Poblano Cheese to our rotation, and we serve it with some Tortilla Chips. If that sounds good to you, you will have to try it! Yum!

Our gift area is full! Turn one way, and you can get Fall decorations. Turn the other, and you can start your Christmas shopping. There are candles with all types of sizes and scents. We also have potpourri and tarts to warm up. We found the prettiest floating candle set for Christmas. You put it in a pretty bowl with water. It has greenery and red berries and a green, red, or white star shaped candle that you can light. Above the produce, we have dedicated a whole shelf to The Ohio State Buckeyes! We were raised to be big Buckeye fans, so we had to have a section for that!

I took a picture of an old fashioned courting candle holder that I added to the gift shop area. It has a neat little story, so I thought I would share it with you. In the 1600-1800s, when a gentleman came to court a young woman, the father would use the courting candle as a timer for when the young man needed to leave. If the father liked the young man, he would raise the candle up to a higher ring, giving them more time together. But if the father did not like the suitor, he would lower the candle to one of the bottom rings, so the young man had less time before he had to leave. I have always loved old-fashioned things. My favorite book series of all time is still Little House on the Prairie, and that was always my favorite TV show as well.

Events Coming Up:

November 18th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.: Thanksgiving Pumpkin Centerpiece Class Spots are filling up for this enjoyable evening! We have 12 ladies signed up so far and can have up to 4 more! I am looking forward to a fun night out while getting to make something pretty for my family for Thanksgiving. Merilee Burton is teaching us, so we will be able to do it on our own for next Thanksgiving or other occasions! Don’t miss out if this is something you would be interested in doing! Please sign up by Friday, November 11th, so Merilee has enough time to get us all our supplies.

December 10th from 11:00-4:00 p.m.: Kids Fun Day! We will have lots of different types of activities for kids to come and do outside under our patio and greenhouse space. We will have hot chocolate, a craft or two, goodies, picture opportunities, and some fun visitors. Some activities will be free, and you won’t have to sign up early or do everything. I know as a mom, I always enjoy something fun I can do with the kids on the weekend. This will be nice, because you can come when you want and spend as much or as little time as you want as well. It should be a good outing to enjoy the holiday season with your family!

Deli Specials for the Week:

Yellow American Cheese $4.99 lb.

Black Forest Ham $4.99 lb.

Thanks so much for your support! We hope you have a wonderful week!

Weekly Newsletter #5: October 22-28

Hello! We’ve been so fortunate to have another beautiful week in the books this fall!

Here’s what is happening outside……

All our fall flowers are still Buy One Get One Free! There isn’t a whole lot left, (which is just what we were hoping for!) but there are still some beautiful large mums and some hanging baskets as well. We have a couple carts filled up with fall annuals. If you don’t want two of something, we will also do 50% off!

We just got in two bins of XL and XXL carving pumpkins! This is the week to pick them up if you haven’t already. Our family tradition is to carve pumpkins on Halloween in the early evening, and then light a candle in it until it burns down. Trick or treat afternoon and evening is usually always busy getting our costumes ready and getting all of the cousins together to eat and play games before trick-or-treating, so that’s why we started to wait to carve pumpkins until October 31st. What about you? When do you like to carve pumpkins?

You may see Jim blowing off the leaves outside. That seems to be one of his favorite things to do right now at the market! LOL. If you beep your horn, and he doesn’t wave, I’m sure it’s because he didn’t hear you!

I did take a few pictures of the front of the market, (because it makes me happy), but I decided I would show you the mums my mother bought at Huck’s. They are show stopping! So, when you look through our pictures this week, I hope you enjoy how everything is displayed at her house! She said they have been the nicest mums she has ever had. I hope you all agree as well! If you have a pretty picture of your mums or porch decorations, post it in the comments. I LOVE to see how other people decorate!

There’s lots going on inside……

Today, I made some more caramel apples! We will keep making them as long as we have enough caramel and as long as we still have Ohio apples! Some are plain and some are with nuts. It’s your choice!

Speaking of apples, here are the kinds you can get: Jonagold, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, McIntosh, Cortland, and Honeycrisp. Jim said it’s just about time for him to get in some Winesap apples! Winesap apples are usually ready in late fall. They get their name for their wine and spicy flavor. They are an all-purpose apple that can be used fresh, in apple sauce and pies, and in ciders. Yum! We have a box mix of Apple Crisp where you add your own choice of fresh apples. That’s on my list of items to try! There is apple cider and mulled cider spices to enjoy for the next couple of weeks as well.

Thanksgiving is about a month away, and we are ready to take your orders for Thanksgiving pies. Next week, I will write a list of all the types that we have, so you can start planning your menu!

My daughter has started to make some clay bead bracelets to sell in the market. She’s 12 and enjoys being crafty and coming into Huck’s. She’s thrilled that she has already sold five out of the 10 that she made. Thank you if you were someone who bought one!

I want to tell you about something that Jim and I are really excited about!! We are going to be offering fresh, quality ground beef and sausage from Zimmerview Farm in Marietta. In the next week or two, you will be able to purchase this farm fresh meat at our market! It will be so nice to know that your meat is local and raised on one of the long standing farms in our area. Growing up on our grandparent’s family farm on Route 26, we always had Zimmer’s dairy cattle on our land, and now we have their beef cattle in our fields. I took a couple of pictures of them. The picture of the black cattle on the hill was taken from our front porch last evening.

Upcoming Events:

November, 18th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.: Thanksgiving Pumpkin Centerpiece Class We have started to get some ladies signed up, but there is still room. The cost is $55 and will include everything you need to make the centerpiece as well as refreshments. I would love for you to be a part of something fun to do on a Friday night! You can sign up by sending us a message on Facebook, call us at 740-373-2484 or email us at hucksfarmmarket@gmail.com (I have included a picture of an example of a Thanksgiving Pumpkin Centerpiece. Ours won’t look exactly like this, but it will give you an idea of what to expect!)

December 10th from 11:00-4:00 p.m.: Kids Fun Day! We have lots of activities and fun things in the works! More information on this is to come!
