Martin's Farmstand:  No Credit Card Surcharge


The farmstand is open this afternoon (Saturday Feb, 24.2024) as normal with a nice selection of winter storage crops and bulk foods. We have stopped charging a surcharge for credit card sales in response to Hochul’s new law that prohibits us from passing the cost of credit card fees on to the customer unless we put both the credit and cash price on item and shelf signage (our equipment such as the label printing scales for the bulk food is not able to do this). Another recommended option is to just charge the higher credit card price to all customers. This option does not suit me. In 2023 about 32 % of our customers paid with cards and 68% paid with cash or check. The rate of credit card use was quite a lot higher before we started surcharging. Starting today we will be giving a 3% cash/ check discount at check out instead. For now the prices throughout the market are still the old pricing however as we get to it and new product comes in we will be moving our posted prices up enough to cover this cost. Daniel

Yalaha, FL:  Sorry I've been lax about opening/closing the market lately.


Remember you can always email or text me if you want to place an order and I forgot to open the Market. Often flexible here though not always predictable.

If you Want to pick up the order at the Chillax Drum Circle in the Villages Sunday Afternoons, just let me know so I can bring it along. If you are with a homeschool group or other facebook group I attend regularly, Let me know so I can plan accordingly. Otherwise when ordering, remember to let me know when you want to come pick up at the farm. If I don’t email you back to confirm, the order may not have gone through.

I may still be able to take orders after Thursday Morning but can’t guarantee availability of things as I may have already packed them for the Restaurants.
Ordering window is Monday Afternoon (or when I open it) through Thursday Morning and pick up will be Friday-Sunday by appointment until we expand more, Please indicate when you would like to pick up when you place your order.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up! (and if I don’t reply to confirm within a day, bump my e-mail or text me 407-342-8515. Though I have cleaned up my e-mail so hopefully I won’t Miss Anyone.)

We have a new Farmer Yonah Mountain Farms. They have Pasture raised Hens. Their hens spend their entire lives outside on pasture eating Bugs, grass, weeds, and seeds make up a large portion of their diet.

I would like to mention a New Product that we will be selling it is Turnip Kraut. When I was little my dad would make a Turnip Kraut, so I got together with Cultured Traditions and came up with a recipe that I think you might like. Let me know what you think…
