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, whitem4@hotmail.com, 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!
Good luck!

Have a beautiful day market family and we will see you Wednesday!

Dandelion greens can be eaten raw, steamed, boiled, sautéed or braised. All parts of the dandelion are edible and have medicinal and culinary uses. It has long been used as a liver tonic and diuretic. In addition, the roots contain inulin and levulin, starchlike substances that may help balance blood sugar, as well as bitter taraxacin, which stimulates digestion.

Dandelions are amazing plants and can even be dehydrated on very low heat for use as a nutritious seasoning. Stock up and try this!

Market News

Good morning everyone!

This week is chock-full of delicious offerings!
Apologies for opening the market a few minutes late. We had an overdue goat to give birth last night! Exciting times :D

Rod at Double Star Bar Farms will have Purple Mustard Greens that have a horseradish taste on the finish for those who like horseradish, you will love these!! These are sold in 2 ounce packages! Sounds delicious for salads, sautees and even in a pesto!
He has also added a mixed bag of German Giant, Cherriette, Chery Belle, or Purple Plum radishes! These will come with the greens which can also add wonderful flavor and nutrition to salads. The greens can also be added to soups, pestos, roasted along with the radishes for a different treat! Try something new this week and share with us!

Ridiculous Chocolate is BACK from vacation this week and back on the market! Welcome home!

Chef Jenny from Seeds of Success will be at the market with samples of all her delicious seasonings and the new Sunbutter Bites!

“These bites combine sunbutter with oats, honey, cocoa, and a hint of sea salt to create a nutritious bite that provides energy, protein, fiber, vitamin E, zinc, and iron. They are perfect for sharing, breakfast on-the-go, or an afternoon snack. Since the SOS is based around the sunflower seed, sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) seemed like an appropriate choice for this bar. *Vegan *No Sugar *No Flour *No Nuts "

White City Produce & Greenhouse has added Rainbow Chard, Arugula, Siberian Kale and Butter Crunch lettuce PLANT STARTS for your own garden.

Don’t forget the Easter Herb Basket from Dogwood Valley, skincare from Botanical Harmony Farm, the incredible food itself and Gift Certificates make a wonderful Easter or welcome Spring gift!

Do you follow the market on Facebook? Make sure to follow and like posts so they show up in your feed because we are planning a welcome Spring GIVEAWAY!! (This is one of Tracey’s favorite parts of working markets and events!!)Don’t worry, if you aren’t on Facebook, you can still enter the giveaway:).

We love this market and want it to continue to grow for the farmers and the customers. If you would like some flyers, for events etc, let us know and we will get those to you!

Again, we thank you for the support of this market and the growers/makers who rely on you for their livelihood. What an incredible community this market truly is!

Linda at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has listed many new spring items.

Cloth diaper safe, it is a fantastic rash cream as well. Try using on red, sore noses and to protect cheeks on blustery days! While the Whipped Body Butter is luscious and decadent (excellent makeup remover and night time moisturizer) , the Baby Skin balm is perfect for skin protection! Comes in 1ounce tin or 2 ounce glass jar!

BREATHE salve, a petroleum-free vapor rub for congested chests and sinuses is available in the large 3 oz tin or a new smaller 1 oz tin!

Don’t be without this wonderful allergy support salve this season!

Fathers day or just to something wonderful to share with someone who doesn’t quite understand “buying and supporting local” or whole foods eating.

Good morning!
What a wonderful first week at L & L Contractors last week! Beautiful place and incredibly supportive folks. It is an honor to be able to have market pickup at their office! Thank you to Donald Lester and group for providing this opportunity!

Product News:
Linda at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse says:

The daffodils are here! We have already enjoyed a couple of early bouquets, and there are plenty more in the garden to share with you. But with temperatures forecast to run in the 60’s this coming week, they may not last too much longer. Get your little piece of springtime, your ray of golden sunshine, while they are here.

Blessings,
Linda Reed
