Beautiful morning to you all!
Thank you for making Stones River Market a part of your weekly grocery (and more) shopping needs!
We want to say a huge thank you to L & L Contractors for providing us with the beautiful space to hold market pickup! PLEASE check out their website and support these local craftsfolk in kind turn for them supporting us!
Alfresco Pasta and Seeds of Success are both on vacation this week and will return next week!
Double Star Bar Farms is hosting a wonderful, family Spring Festival. Here is the flyer info. Contact Maura White, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any additional comments or questions:
April 30th is our SPRING FESTIVAL here at Double Star Bar Farms! Come visit the farm! Bring the family, listen to a couple of lectures, learn a couple things, hike, eat, listen to live music, and take a deep breath of fresh country air!! You can even bring your own camping gear and camp overnight!
Lectures include learning to inoculate logs to grow your own mushrooms, how to make your own mozzarella cheese, learn about herbs, and a fun lecture from the funny and expert egg lady!!
See what is growing. Ask questions about getting started farming. Tour the greenhouse. Walk among the beautiful peach trees. See how asparagus grows.
Even though International Homesteading Education Month, sponsored by Mother Earth News Magazine and Grit Magazine, is usually held in September, we decided to hold ours in the spring this year so that people could see what’s growing and what to be on the lookout for as we transition into summer.
Come out and visit and see what is growing!!
SweetPea has added a few more plant starts to the growing list.
Dogwood Valley has added a blackberry jam: “This jam is made from blackberries gathered on my own farm. It has been strained a bit, but still has most of the seeds for texture. Chemical-free, but not certified organic because of prohibitive charges associated with this certification. Ingredients are sugar, blackberries, and Sure-Jell.”
White City Produce has tomatoes! Frontier Family Farms continues to provide us with wonderful broccoli.
There are many listings to choose from for eggs, meat, milk, skin care, animal food and treats along with spring plantings.
Now the fun stuff! GIVEAWAY For each person ordering this week, you will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Stones River Market Gift Certificate for yourself AND one to give to someone else who is not a current customer!
Have a beautiful day market family and we will see you Wednesday!
