You have landed at the place where we talk about all of the really cool people and places we run into in our travels. Keep checking back when you get a second to see what's new in Tink's world!
Greetings from Tink World!
As many of you know, there are several ways to find our products in the Augusta area. This year, a great store front in downtown Augusta/Harrisburg area opened called The West End Market & Bakery. Of course, we jumped at the opportunity to be in another store, but it was about more than that.
The Harrisburg area, an old mill village, has been desolate for years. Not many businesses are left and the convenience of finding food, especially fresh food, was pretty much non-existent. That was, until a couple of years ago when a young college student decided to make it possible for locals to get organic, locally grown food in their town.
Now, The West End Market & Bakery is an extension to this idea. You can visit the Veggie Truck Farmers Market on Tuesdays to purchase right from the farmers. However, the store front makes it possible to purchase organic, locally grown food more than just once each week.
For us, like many farmers, it’s nice to have our products available in small stores. Being in a small store allows us to be in other places while still serving the town in which the store is located. It gives the customer options for purchasing and makes finding good food a little more convenient than a once each week market. Tink’s Beef is proud to be a very small part of bringing good food to this area. We look forward to the many years ahead and all of the new people we’ll meet in the process.
As for markets, Team Tink will be at the Evans Towne Market on Thursday, July 31 from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. Then, on Saturday, we’ll be at the Decatur Farmers Market. This weekend, we’ll be leaving the market a little early, around 12:30 p.m. to be with my dad’s mom who is celebrating a milestone birthday! So, be sure to stop at our table by 12:15 to get your meat for the week!
Well, that’s all for now. Have a great week and we’ll see you at the market!
