read through everything!
As always, we are seeking out new, small, local diverse businesses to support! We LOVE the growers we have here and appreciate them to the moon and back. Ashleigh and I meet new folks at live markets all the time and feel that the growers/makers we have are the BEST of who’s in Middle Tennessee! All in one convenient place!
As we bid well wishes to Sean at Nuance Coffee & Tea and thank him for years of roasted coffee and specialty teas…
Please welcome Erin and Bethany from E & B Coffee Roasters. They have 4 products on the market this week, one for every coffee lover! Either Certified Organic or Rainforest Alliance Certified and all Fair-Trade… Oh my goodness!! Incredible and the Sumatra is my favorite, Iced or Hot!! We hope Erin and Bethany will be able to set up a meet and greet table very soon.
Also welcome Virgin Bay Seafood YES, we said SEAFOOD in TN… before you shrug this off, hear them out!
-We source 100% sustainable and wild caught Alaskan Seafood. All products are blast frozen and vac sealed in AK for the long journey to TN. We have 4 different species of Salmon, Halibut, Cod, Crab and Scallops. We also offer Salmon Burger and Smoked Salmon. All products are 100% Wild, so availability can vary throughout the year.
There is so much I have learned about Virgin Bay and how they do business, how intense the process is to get “one line, one fish” at a time to your table (words from one of their market representatives who has taught me so much about this family and their business!) and how much they love what they do!
They have many products available along with their version of a CSA listed on the market!! Please take some time to see all they offer!
Both E&B and Virgin Bay Seafood are fellow market vendors with us at the Nolensville Farmers Market. From watching the lines at both booths, seeing repeat customers bring praises and excitement in supporting these small, local (YES, Virgin Bay’s Cathy is an MTSU graduate!), we truly felt the calling to invite them into our market family. We hope you are as pleased as we are with the quality!!
Linda from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse sends this note:
Perfect fall herb-planting time is here! Buy any herb plant offered by Dogwood Valley Greenhouse on the market (designated by “Herb Plant” in front of the name), and I will also give you a Stevia plant for free! I have some nice Stevia plants (see picture in listing), but they aren’t winter-hardy, and I have no way to overwinter them safely. However, if you move your new Stevia plant to a slightly larger pot, you will be able to bring it inside toward the end of October, and enjoy its sweetness in your drinks and baked goods all winter. For more information about and uses of Stevia, see http://stevia.com and
http://stevia.net . Place your herb order soon, while my Stevia supplies last
Erdmann Farms will be away this week and we wish John safe travels!
Rod at Double Star Bar Farms will be taking orders this week… He and Maura are going on vacation for THREE WEEKS! Bagels freeze incredibly well so be sure to stock up!
Summer produce is still rolling in but if you haven’t tried Frontier Family Farms peas… oh my goodness! The WHOLE thing is sweet and delicious raw!
Thank you for supporting this family market!
As always, we thank L & L Contractors for their hospitality and generosity in hosting our market! Please remember them in your contracting needs! They support us so please return the support to them!
See you Wednesday!
Tracey & Ashleigh
