Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesday
Good Morning on this “Chili” day (hint hint..), the Market is OPEN with some great items for upcoming holidays and for you.
Last week was a emotional roller coaster type of week for our area. The tragic Tornado damages effected many of us. Including our Market Owner, John Erdmann, their home and farm was destroyed. News clips can be found on our Stones River Market Facebook page below. A link to the GoFundMe account is also listed below. Donations will also be accepted during our Market Pick Up time and Quinn’s Mercantile during business hours. John has requested assistance with cleaning up the debris on the farm. A tentative ‘Clean the Farm Day’ will be around 1st of December. Announcement and updates will be posted on the Facebook page and through this Weblog.
In the colder weather it is important to take care of ourselves. Many great ‘healthful’ items can be found in Soap and Skin Care and Herbal Healing Salves and Oils.
Our Meat vendors have great selection of items that will make any meal and holiday dinner a success. Winter Produce is still available and Rocky Glade Farm has returned with their delicious Carolina Ruby Sweet Potatoes.
Please scan the Market listing, so many wonderful things available this week from our terrific group of Growers and Vendors. We are excited to welcome BB Gourmet Pretzels, The Creole Diva, Mo’ Scrubs by Toya to the Market.
Thank you to all that were able to participated in our “Meet the Farmer” event last week. We are planning another event sometime in the Spring.
News from our Growers:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: This is the LAST WEEK to place deposits for their beautiful Christmas Wreaths and Kissing Balls. They also have Christmas cacti and several colors of African violets in bloom for Christmas.
Farrar Farm LLC: HOLIDAY PRE-ORDERS — Reserve your item by selecting it and paying the deposit. Order early to have them for the holidays. They will order it from processor and let you know when it is ready. Some items sell out pretty quickly, so order early.
Flying S Farms: Their popular Christmas Jam is available again and several Flaming HOT Jellies.
The Creole Diva: Delicious Dirty Rice mix and Creole Spice is great for these colder days and anytime.
