We have a new vendor on the market, Hope for Health joins us offering baked goods and candies. We asked her to tell us about her business practices. She wants everyone to know: I am all about packing in as much nutrition into everything I make (with the exception of my candy). I only use the best ingredients whenever possible, including organic, natural, etc., in all of my baked goods. I grind my own flours, use fresh farm eggs, fresh unprocessed honey, organic coconut oil, and organic spices. Even my candy, which I see as an occasional treat, only has pure cane sugar, real butter, etc. Thanks!
She has added many goodies along with customized Valentine treats for your loved ones and delicious pumpkin muffins (we have first-hand experience with them). Check those out!
Chef Jenny with Seeds of Success has added some gorgeous GLUTEN FREE Heart Healthy Brownies. Instead of flour, these brownies are made with heart healthy, protein rich black beans. The chocolatey richness comes from cocoa, dark chocolate chips, pure cane sugar, and farm fresh eggs. You won’t even know it’s missing flour. Consider it a guilt-free Valentine’s Day treat, for yourself, or a loved one.
Wedge Oak Farm has ground turkey, 1 lb chub of our pasture raised turkey ground with our Mangalitsa fat. They have also added artisan Tacchino. “Tacchino” is Italian for “Turkey”. Our Tacchino is a light and mild italian turkey sausage made in small batches.
Botanical Harmony Farm added all-natural, goat milk soaps in many plant-based scents.
Nuance Coffee & Tea lists new Matcha tea blends.
Our vendors sometimes bring extras to sell during pickup. Last week Hope for Health and Double Star Bar Farm brought muffins and sourdough breads. These were a huge hit and we hope to have more this week. They will be at the table next to checkout.
ALSO Stones River Market has gift certificates listed! What an incredible gift to share with someone…. as a housewarming, a new friend, Valentine’s Day, Mother or fathers day or just to something wonderful to share with someone who doesn’t quite understand “buying and supporting local” or whole foods eating.
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!
See you Wednesday,
Ashleigh & Tracey
