Market News


Good morning!

Hope you all enjoyed a few days of lovely sun!

Rocky Glade Farm is here this week, which means Dylem and Caleb’s eggs are as well!
They also bring:
Yukina Savoy (Asian green like tatsoi, very mild), Kale, Spinach, Bok Choi, Swiss Chard, Garlic Bundles, Butterkin Winter Squash (you can use this to make butternut soup!), and our last few bottles of honey for this season! (Stock up!)

Stock up on your favorite breads, frozen soups and prepared foods this week for quick, filling meals!

John with Short Mountain Cultures will have a tasting table set up this week. Learn how you can incorporate healthy tempeh and cultured foods into your diet, how to prepare them, and diversify your weekly meals with these incredible offerings!

Please be sure to check out all that our market has to offer! Some of the BEST locally grown, made or sourced goods around! I am constantly amazed at how much our vendors care about health and living a more sustainable lifestyle while trying to earn a living from selling the very things that help aid that. It can be a difficult balance and I hope it shows in the quality and care that our vendors provide. Thank you for supporting the market and small businesses!

Don’t forget that we can deliver to your door! Select delivery, from the market product section and add to your cart ,check that your address is correct in the system, set a cooler out and we will deliver during the normal pickup hours on Wednesday.

See you Wednesday!

I want to take a moment to thank our gracious host, L & L Contractors for setting aside time and space in their office home to allow market pickup! If you see Tammy at the front desk or any of the welcoming staff, please say hello! When you are considering remodeling or home improvements/repairs, please speak with Donnie Lester to find out what they can do for you! Just looking around in their building says a lot about their care and craftsmanship!

This week brings White City Produce & Greenhouseback and Rocky Glade off.

Frontier Family Farm is providing some amazing Brussels Sprouts, spinach and lettuces to get us through the winter produce needs. We have used the spinach in soups and fritters! YUM!

Jenny with Seeds of Success has a new, updated and gorgeous website: sostn.com
Try some, or all, of her seasonings on your own gourmet creations and check out some customer favorites such as the chick patties!

Farrar Farms has you covered in the beef department with steaks, chorizo and bones for your stock pot! A 5th generation farm in Lynchburg: “We allow our cattle to grow up naturally without the use of any artificial growth hormones, steroids, or other additives. In addition to leisurely grazing the beautiful pasture on the rolling hills of Farrar Farm, our cattle also get an additional (and, at least if you’re a cow, delicious) supplement feed of spent mash from the local distilleries. The outcome is tastier, more tender beef, happier and healthier cows, and a better environment.”

Check out the duck sausage from Wedge Oak it gets rave reviews from customers!

Benjamin’s Organic Sprouts is Back with the alfalfa, broccoli and zesty mix! All great for sandwiches and salads or just popped into your mouth for a delicious snack.

Wild Flours will be off for 2 weeks and then back the second week of February! They will be with us every other week so be sure to stock up.

Flying S Farms and Double Star Bar Farms also have incredible breads!

Want to try Botanical Harmony Farm soap but not commit to the large bar? Try the sale cuts (which actually we have run out of so are cutting perfect bars in half because the cuts are so popular!). They are $2.50 a cut and we choose the scent. What a deal! \Organic, all-natural AND affordable.

This weather is gearing thoughts towards gardens and flowers!! Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has a few lovely hanging baskets and house plants to keep your fingers green until time to dig deep in the soil!

Don’t forget that we can deliver to your door! Select delivery and add to your cart just as you would any product check that your address is correct in the system, set a cooler out and we will deliver during the normal pickup hours on Wednesday.

See you Wednesday!

WELCOME BACK! to Nom Noms Dog Treats -

Bring the garden inside for the winter!

The multi-colored foliage of our Rex begonias and various-colored blooms of our Christmas cacti will really raise your spirits during the dreary winter months. Our Aloe vera plants will help heal cuts and burns from winter-time cooking. And our wandering Jews and spider plants in two colors will fill your windows with green and colorful foliage. I also have two very large hanging baskets, one Swedish ivy and one blooming flame violet, which would make spectacular gifts for the gardener with a winter birthday. Check out our beautiful houseplants, and add one to your home, or that of a friend, this week!

Rocky Glade Farm is with us this week and then begin an every other week schedule. When the sunshine returns, in the Spring, they will be back full time! Stock up each week so you don’t miss your favorites.

Market News

PLEASE NOTE————-We will be CLOSED the week of December 28 with no ordering. -—————————————

Good morning and we hope you are all warm and safe after last night’s severe storms.

We have many new items listed this week from Valentine Family Farm: seasonings to herbal remedies!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has a light pink and a red Christmas cactus listed. These are GORGEOUS plants to have or to gift! My mother gave me some several years ago and they continue to provide much needed winter cheer with their right-on-time for Christmas showy blossoms! I have even forced a second bloom by repotting!

White City Produce & Greenhouse will be with us this week.

Ann E May’s Gluten Free Goodies has listed several new items this week and will have a table set up for tasting! EVEN if you aren’t “gluten free” these baked goods are wonderful treats!

As I type this and try to think of all the wonderful items to mention on the market… I think of ALL our vendors because everything is wonderful!!

Nature’s Wealth added popcorn that has been grown “on the mountain” for over 30 years! It is small-grained, tender, and hulless. It is DELICIOUS!!!

we have jams, jellies, tempeh, meat of all kinds, milk, yogurt, eggs, baked goods, soaps, and so so much more to choose from!

If you don’t usually take time to browse for a new staple item, please do.. we probably have it!

Always wanted to help someone understand that eating naturally raised, produced or locally made foods/skin care has many benefits? Give them a market gift card, stock their fridge, pantry, freezer and bathroom with a basket of goods from a variety of growers/makers! Who wouldn’t love that gift? It gives to the community by supporting the vendors of the market (then they are able to provide for their families) and gives a wealth of knowledge through experiencing!

All done shopping :D

We will have vendors set up until Christmas each week. This week is Ann E Mays Gluten Free Goodies , Botanical Harmony Farm and possibly several others! We hope you will take an extra moment to browse their products and get to know the people behind the order buttons and photos!

Have a wonderful week!

See you Wednesday!

Good morning!

You know that amazing space we have for market pickup? L & L Contractors graciously extends a community welcome to us each week! What a gift and a blessing! We thank them so very much for the hospitality!

We hope this note finds you well and ready for a new week! We have still so much local goodness available from our incredible community of growers/makers/fishermen! This market has such beautiful abundance doesn’t it?

White City Produce and Greenhouse* is with us this week and next!

Frontier Family Farm continues to provide tender peas and out of this world brussel sprouts. The peas are great raw and in salads. If you are unsure of Brussels sprouts, try steaming and with butter and seasoning. Don’t overcook, that is what gives them a bad name.

Flying S Farms has added several delicious-looking cakes to their lineup. A red velvet and white layer cake which could be a wonderful holiday desert addition.

The Krafty Kupboard added more giftables to the selections at amazing, mark-down prices.

Dylem and Caleb will be back next week with eggs!

Need gift ideas?

Valentine Family Farm pickled anything, Short Mountain Cultures hot sauce and tempeh, Seeds of Success seasonings all in a basket and viola!

I think my gift-giving has never been so simple this year!

Market News

Good morning all!

Are you thinking about Christmas now that Thanksgiving has passed?

Stones River Market has you COVERED for so many gift options!

First:
Stephanie with The Krafty Kupboard has fantastic ideas:

Before creating organic, local foods, The Krafty Kupboard was in the hand-made gifting business. She specialized in hand-made gifts for mothers, Babies and young children, but also made other items. While she loves to sew and create, she no longer has time to maintain this business. She’s clearing out her inventory and selling her hand-made gifts for 50%-75% off their original prices for the holiday season. Look under “hand-made & gifts” to see her products. You can find things such as child aprons, baby blankets, burp cloths, breastfeeding covers, pacifier clips, child leg warmers, infinity scarves and more.

Then there is ALWAYS a chance to pull together an amazing “locally produced” basket assortment of Seeds of Success seasonings, Short Mountain Cultures sauces, Valentine Family Farm pickled delights, "Flying S Farms* sweet bread along with Wild Flours loaves and Marcy Jams jellies. Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has wonderful, hand-made “kissing balls” featuring incredible greenery! Double Star Bar Farms* candied ginger (it’s addictive!) and Ann E May’s Gluten Free Goodies has listed new thumbprint cookies along with Fresh roasted, organic coffees from E & B Coffee would be delicious!

Even giving someone a stocked fridge or freezer of meats from Farrar Farms, Wedge Oak or West Wind Farms, producefrom Frontier Family Farm and Rocky Glade Farm and Virgin Bay Seafood would be appreciated! Check out all the options available!

The ideas are nearly limitless for each person on your list!

How about sending someone a gift certificate and paying to have their order shipped to them! All done and always appreciated!

Third, there’s Botanical Harmony Farm who is listing two gift sets. One is a soap/spray/hand balm assortment and the other is a kitchen/bath set.

Finally and so important, there are gift certificates for not only Stones River Market as a whole but also several other vendors have them listed for their products!

I know I am forgetting so many items and many different gift ideas but all this to say, check it out… your shopping is complete right here with Stones River Market!

One more item of note!
We are giving away TWO free tickets to the Christmas Schooner at The Center for the Arts all you have to do is order this week to have one entry. The tickets are for the December 16, 7:30 show.

Based on the true story of the Rouse Simmons, a Great Lakes schooner whose captain risks life and limb to transport fir trees from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Chicago’s German immigrants during the late 19th century. Notable songs from the musical include “We All Have Songs,” “Pass it On,” “What is it About the Water?,” “The Christmas Schooner,” “Questions,” and “Hardwater Sailor.”

Extremely touching story and sure to be a Christmas favorite!

See you Wednesday!

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!

We hope your holiday was wonderful and to kick off the back to regular-life schedule, be sure to get your healthy, locally produced goods right here!

Ann E Mays would like to thank all of the generous customers who bought pies and cakes from the girls last week!

We will be taking a much needed vacation this week but will be back with pies, cakes and delicious Christmas cookies on December 4. We look forward to seeing you all then!

Linda with Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has been working hard to be ready for your holiday needs! She sends this note

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has some things to help with your Christmas decorations. This year, in addition to our kissing balls, we also have centerpiece baskets of greenery. They’re selling as fast as I can make them at this time, so place your order soon.

Botanical Harmony Farm has added an Organic Green Tea and Sea Clay soap to their lineup. Amazing antioxidants and pulling power to help clear oily skin yet not leave it dry! Goat milk is nourishing and helps repair skin cells!

They also have a new Eco-Soy Candle in a variety of Fragrances.

“While we don’t use any fragrance oils in our skin care, Phtalate-free fragrance oils along with exceptionally clean-burning, renewable, soy-oil and paper core wicks are a great choice for burning in the home.
We love the scents we have chosen and hope you will too! There will be seasonal favorites, themed gift sets and more to come! We are working hard to be ready for your holiday gifting!”
