Market News

Good morning!

Have we mentioned how amazing the folks at L & L Contractors are lately? ABSOLUTLEY supportive of the local community in every way they can be! Makes me proud to call Murfreesboro my hometown!

L & L Contractors is GIVING AWAY the whiskey barrel table handcrafted by Rustic River Creations which sits on the stone rise at market pickup. The way to enter is via their Facebook page and the post they made about the giveaway which ends on 7/20!! Don’t miss your chance!

Nuance Coffee & Tea will be away this week 7/20. We look forward to Sean’s return.

Chef Jenny, Seeds of Success returns with many items, including her raw carrot cake! Locally grown carrots included in these decadent and nutritious bites!

ROCKY GLADE FARM brings us delicious:

HONEY! Just finished up robbing our ladies this week and the honey is wonderful! Our honey is all natural, we just strain it, never heat it…so it retains all the natural enzymes and pollen etc that will help you fight allergies naturally. We grow all sorts of vegetables that the bees get nectar from, they also take in a good amount of white clover and the buckwheat we grow for cover crops, so the honey is a true mix of everything they have collected from last fall, all winter, spring and early summer…good immunity! Coloring is medium, honey color will vary from bottle to bottle. Taste is fantastic!!! I have quart jars in glass as well as plastic inverted squeeze bottles that hold one pound of honey.

Garlic…garlic bundles!

Potatoes…plenty of german butterballs are available as well as purple bora valley and Yukon gold.

Tropea Onions—Sweet Red onions that are very mild, no bite just lots of wonderful sweet onion flavor. These are the torpedo shaped onions. They come in one pound bundles

Erdmann Farms has absolutely GORGEOUS cut flowers!!

White City Produce has large amounts of vegetables available along with favorites from Flying S Farm SweatPea and Rainbow Hill

The Stones River Market L & L Contractors market bags are still available for purchase. Through the month of July, all $100 purchases receive one FREE bag. No limit through the month. If you spend $100 each week, then you receive a bag each time. Use them, share them… your choice! Thank you!

IMPORTANT!


Hello valued customers!

We need to remind folks that if you order, you MUST pick it up on Wednesday or make immediate arrangements to get your things as soon as possible.
Our farm is not equipped to handle excess produce and cannot guarantee the quality of items not picked up. Our farmers responsibility ends when they drop your items off. Ashleigh and I are volunteers of the market and have a farm and family to also attend to. WE LOVE the market, but want it to flourish and not suffer due to the market having to pay farmers for items ordered and not picked up.

Everyone completely understands the occasional forget and there is always a measure of grace that is extended to managers, customers and farmers. We are all human.

However, if you order and don’t pick up, be advised that you will be charged for your purchase via a square invoice emailed to you. You must pay that even if you never pick up your items.

Thank you for your continued support and for respecting our wonderful market and it’s producers.

Sincerely,
Tracey Burks
Ashleigh Newnes

Freedom is a wonderful thing and a true blessing but with much responsibility to our communities and neighbors and local producers/makers and business people! Freedom’s pricetag is a good burden to have: caring for each other and the bigger picture!

As always, thank you for choosing Stones River Market. This is truly a community market and we love what we do for you!

Plenty of summer veg from Flying S Farm and White City Produce

Have you tried Seeds of Success seasonings on roasted corn? You may find yourself slightly addicted!!

Don’t forget the dogs in your life! Nom Noms is dedicated to providing quality, researched nutrition treats for your loved ones. Your dogs will beg for them!

The weather may be hot, but a second planting of herbs, flowers and veggies (or even a first planting for some) can still happen!
Rainbow Hill Dogwood Valley Greenhouse Sweetpea and White City Produce may still have what you are looking for!

Erdmann Farms has absolutely GORGEOUS cut flowers!!

Market News


Good morning everyone!
We hope you enjoyed your weekend and are gearing up for a wonderful week ahead, including getting some of your grocery shopping done with Stones River Market!

Rocky Glade Farm and Seeds of Success will both be off this week and we wish them both well and look forward to their returning!

Linda with Dogwood Valley set up at pickup for the last two weeks displaying and selling her beautiful potted plants. Now that you have had a chance to see them in person, I’m sure there are some plants calling your name (I hear mine!)

BAMBOO!! You asked, Sweetpea delivers! We can custom cut and deliver stakes and poles from 1/2" – 2" diameter and up to 8’ long. Inquiries are welcome about longer lengths or smaller “orchid”-type stakes for house plants. 24" stakes are approximately 1/2" diameter.
Thanks Ken!

Nuance Coffee and Tea has added four new teas, to our offerings, this week.

The new teas are: Organic Egyptian Nile Delta Chamomile, Sasebo Breeze green tea, Tokyo Cherry Blossom green tea, and organic, fair trade, Hibiscus.

Sweet tea drinkers will also love these, regularly stocked, black teas that make the best iced teas you’ll ever taste: Assam Borengajuli Estate (India), Keemun Panda (China), Kambaa or Tinderet Estates (Kenya) and our Blueberry flavored black.
Enjoy!
Sean

Non Noms Dog Treats does it again with these delicious sounding treats.Many dogs love apples which is great because apples can be a super, healthy treat. Apples contain calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C, and pectin (soluble fibre). Carrots are low calorie and high in fiber and beta carotene/vitamin A. Flax seed is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fatty acids that are good for skin and coat. Gluten/Wheat free all-purpose flour, apples, carrots, water, & ground flax seed.
Comes in 6 ounce regular and training sizes.

How about something sweet? Flying S and Hope for Health have you covered!

Double Star Bar Farms bagels and breads are incredible! We have made sandwiches on the bagels for lunch.. what a treat!

See you all Wednesday,
