So we debuted our salad mix last week and sold out in less than two days. It’s obviously nice for us that there seems to be demand for it, but we also don’t like turning folks away due to sell outs. It’s going to be a slow process, but we’re working on increasing our weekly salad mix output. Salad mix is something that we will ideally be able to do year-round, so we’re trying to play the long game here. Anyway, for those who bought salad mix last week, please let us know what you thought about it! Any feedback, good or bad, is welcome.
We WILL have salad mix for sale this week, but it will likely not be as much as we had last week. So, for that reason, we’re going to ask that any future salad mix orders be limited to one bag per order for the time being. Regarding our $5 for 1, $4 for 2+ pricing scheme where you mix and match with microgreens trays…. that will still be in effect. So a single bag of salad mix will be $5, but if you get a bag of salad mix and 1 or more microgreens trays, then the salad mix and microgreens will be $4 per item. Please let us know if you have any questions on that.
We’re sold out of chicken eggs for the May 2 market, but are taking advance orders for the May 9 market. We do have some duck eggs available for May 2, and plenty of microgreens.
Behind the scenes, we’re also investigating ways to better automate the order reservation process. It will almost certainly involve some sort of shopping cart scheme on our website, but a potential twist could be that you could either purchase your cart contents via PayPal / credit card (just like you would in any online store)… OR… you could “reserve” the contents of your order and pay later via Venmo or in-person at the market, etc. But, generally, having our products visible on our website with prices and availability for upcoming market dates… all of that, it seems, would make for a more streamlined, efficient experience for all involved. Anyway, these are all concepts / in the works at this point, but we’ll keep you posted with any news on that front.
Hang in there, everyone, and hope to see you Saturday!
