We’ll be braving the cold tomorrow to bring some nourishing hot food down to the Ithaca Farmers Market. Hope to see you there!

We’ve had many people asking how much longer we’ll be at the market this year. The answer is: We will continue attending the market on Saturdays through December 15 or until the snow really flies — whichever comes first!

So bundle up and come visit us!

The season’s taken a sharp turn toward winter, so be sure you’re taking care of yourself. Stay warm, and nourish your body with nutrient-rich foods. We can help with one of those two things! Come down to the Farmers Market tomorrow for a hot, healthful meal from our booth.

If you’d rather stay in on Saturday, don’t fret — you can now find Macro Mamas products at several new locations around Ithaca. We deliver Macro Meals (like our Sampler Platter), Peanut Lime Noodles, Heavenly Tapioca, and Toasted Almond Chocolate Mousse on Tuesday mornings. We’ve added a few stops to our delivery route: Gimme! Coffee on State Street, Gimme! Coffee at Gates Hall (Cornell) and the Statler Hotel. If you’re out and about, pick up some tasty goodness at any of these or our other retailers.

We hope to see you on Saturday — bundle up and come on out!

Update for Tuesdays: Where to Find Macro Mamas

Hi out there, Tuesday fans. I have bad news and I have good news.

Bad news first: we’ve decided that we will not be attending Tuesday markets in Dewitt Park for the remainder of the season. That’s right: no more Macro Mamas at the Tuesday market! We are not certain yet if we’ll continue to come to Tuesday markets next season, but for 2018, our time has come.

Good news second: There are still plenty of opportunities to get Macro Mamas goodies, including on Tuesdays! If you often find yourself down near Dewitt Park at lunchtime, you’re still in luck! We deliver fresh, delicious Macro Meals to Greenstar Dewitt on Tuesdays mid-morning. They should be hitting the shelves around noon. You can also find our Peanut Lime Noodle in their display case. So before you despair that Macro Mamas won’t be there in person, rest assured we can still be part of your lunch hour on Tuesdays.

Not at Dewitt Park? You can find the same offerings at Greenstar’s West End and Collegetown locations. Or, if you’re near Cornell, look for our Macro Meals at the Gimme! Coffee location in Gates Hall (this one’s new to us — show them some love!). Manndible Café and Temple of Zeus both carry our packaged desserts and Peanut Lime Noodles.

And of course, the best news of all — you can still find us on Saturdays at Steamboat Landing. We’ll be there until the snow flies, or until December 15 — whichever one comes first.

We hope you’re taking care of yourselves and your loved ones. Be sure to invoke your healing + immunity charms of all sorts (Vitamin C, Reishi, Echinacea, Zinc, whatever your preferred potion, with lots of water) as these shoulder seasons can bring new illnesses our bodies aren’t prepared for, especially in times of stress and turmoil. These are troubling times: be strong, be healthy, spread love.

Join us at the Finger Lakes Health Fair! // Menu for Saturday, September 22, 2018

This weekend marks the autumn equinox, and the transition couldn’t be clearer. On Saturday we’ll be breaking out sweaters, long pants, hats and scarves—along with hot apple cider, nourishing and flavorful winter squash soup, and a variety of warming flavors.

We’ll be down at the Farmers Market as usual tomorrow, and we’re always so happy to see you there. This week, however, we’re also setting up shop at the first annual Finger Lakes Health Fair in Trumansburg, and we hope you’ll come out to support their mission of bringing together those who practice and receive healing modalities and promoting health and wellness in our community. We’ll be there from 10 AM until 5 PM — do stop by!

We’ll be at the market tomorrow on this gorgeous late-summer day. We’re grateful to be enjoying sunshine and fair weather, especially knowing that a few hundred miles south Hurricane Florence is still dropping literally trillions of gallons of water on the Carolinas. The flooding is sure to be devastating. We only hope that people and animals have safe places to be, on high ground, and shelter from the rain and wind. Our hearts are with the folks whose homes and lives are in peril. Our hearts are with the wildlife, too, whose ecosystems are disrupted and whose habitats are threatened by the storm. We pray for everyone to make it safely through the storm.

It’s hard to continue business as usual when such a disaster is unfolding, but here we are. We’ll know in several days what we can do to help. In the meantime, we will continue to share love by making good food and nourishing our neighbors and friends.

Be well out there, everyone.
