I’m thinking it might actually be winter in Tennessee, maybe for a week anyway! Thank you to everyone that came a little early last week to avoid some of the heavy rains. Please be safe if there is bad weather, contact me if you can not pickup your order and we’ll make other arrangements for you “Safety First”.

Here is some News From Our Growers:

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Check out our creamy and delicious hummus, our elderberry syrup, fire cider, and shrubs, our delicious herbal healing teas, and our gourmet herbal mustards! Our miner’s lettuce (Claytonia) is coming along, and we have been combining it with our wild rocket arugula and chickweed for a delicious, fresh, hand-picked, “foraged greens salad.“ We need to take a break from the greens this week, but should have enough next week for quite a few servings, so get ready! In the meantime,

Nom Noms Dog Treats: My name is Sandy, I’ve done dog rescue since I was a kid. I started the dog treat business 6 years ago when all those treats were killing dogs and making others sick. I wanted to provide something safe and tasty to my rescue. Once I saw how much others liked my doggie treats I went into business. I do this to not only make a living but to provide free spay/neuters to cut down on all the dogs who end up in shelters or worse. I love being able to provide healthy, safe, yummy treats while helping the pet overpopulation problem. I make them gluten/wheat free so almost all dogs can eat them. 4 ingredients in each, pure and simple ingredients.

Mushamo Valley: New this week is TURTLE-LY RAD! That’s how you’ll be feeling with these adorable turtle buns! Hides a sweet surprise: white chocolate shavings are nestled inside to form a melty center. These are especially nice warmed with a cup of tea or coffee!… Oyster mushrooms naturally fruit in deciduous forests, but our little buddies grow up warm and cozy in the comfort of Mushamo Valley….The Sandwich Medley is a mega-tasty mix of mild Alfalfa and Red Clover sprouts added to zesty, crunchy Daikon Radish sprouts for big zippity, zingy flavor!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s daffodil time in Tennessee! The daffodils will come on fast if we have warmish weather. They should be available for at least two more weeks after this one, so if you miss out on the early blooms, please try again next week.

Short Mountain Cultures: We now offer a range of Hatcher Dairy Milk on SRM!! Our offerings include cream top whole milk, chocolate milk, half and half and heavy cream. Support local milk! It is some of the BEST milk around! Also be sure to check out our Tempeh (pronounced TEM-pay)it is a cultured, fermented plant based protein native to Indonesia. Delicious, versatile and quick to prepare tempeh readily accepts your favorite sauces, marinades and dry rub seasonings.

Wedge Oak Farm: We are back again this week with some delicious Meat items! Check out our Artisan Sausages; Tikka Turkey, Nashville Hot Chicken, Duck, Brats, Chorizo Links, French Meatloaf Links, Italian Mild and Medium Sausage.

Caney Fork Farms: Our Winter Season schedule with the Market is monthly, next times will be February 26th and March 25th, returning weekly in April 2020.

Certainly hope everyone did well through last weeks weather. Would like to remind our customers if by chance there is severe weather please do not feel obligated to pickup your order, let me know and we can make other pickup arrangements. Safety First! We were able to get off ‘The Porch’ before worst of the rainstorm arrived but it was still a little scary with the lightning and rain!

News From Our Growers:

Short Mountain Cultures: We now offer a range of Hatcher Dairy Milk on SRM!! Our offerings include cream top whole milk, chocolate milk, half and half and heavy cream. Support local milk! It is some of the BEST milk around!

Wedge Oak Farm: Back this week with some delicious Meat items!

The Sugared Spoon: Our Chocolate Raspberry Cookies are available through Valentine’s Day. Assortments are always are great choice also.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s daffodil time in Tennessee! Well, I hope it is. 70* weather at the first of the week brought the buds on too fast, then the beds where my daffodils are planted all flooded a foot deep! Lastly we had an inch of snow Thursday night and temperatures hovering around freezing all day Friday, which bowed down the tenderest, largest buds. Some of the first flowers may have been damaged, but the majority of the bed will be fine. So I’m going out on a limb and listing a few bouquets available this week. If those are sold when you place your order, go ahead and order one anyway, but know that I will be filling orders on a first come, first served basis. The daffodils will come on fast if we have warmish weather. They should be available for at least two more weeks after this one, so if you miss out on the early blooms, please try again next week. Thanks for your continued support and encouragement!

Mushamo Valley: This week Lion’s Mane is available, considered the lobster or crab of the mushroom world with a taste described as rich, buttery, sweet, and meaty…. NEW: Japanese curry buns are extremely flavorful and very mild! and Chinese peanut cookie traditionally served at the lunar new year, each cookie is approximately 1.5” and made of freshly roasted and ground peanuts.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Our arugula and mustard greens had a bit of snow on them the last few days, but they should be thawed out by market time…Our red pepper and rosemary thyme hummus are a great addition to salad, casseroles, sandwiches, or crackers…Try a gut-healthy shrub for great taste combined with nutritious ingredients.

Nom Noms Dog Treats: Our Dog Treats are nutritiously delicious doggie treats that help get dogs spayed/neutered. Our treats are gluten/wheat free, vegan, and full of good protein.

Flying S Farms: NEW this week by request Vanilla Cinnamon Raisin Friendship Bread. Fresh Farm Eggs, Salad Onions, Garlic Bulbs, Sour Dough and Artisan Style Bread, along with Jams and Jelly this week.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: Offering this week Boston Butt Roast, Pork Chops, Tenderized Cutlets, Shoulder (Picnic) Roast and Breakfast Sausage with Medium or Spicy Seasoning.

February has arrived, we’ve made it through the doldrums of January! Looking forward to the countdown to Spring.

Enjoy the Market this week and thank you for supporting our Locally Grown Market.

We are excited to welcome new Growers to the Market. Watch for Mushamo Valley delicious Sprouts and Mushrooms and Nom Noms Dog Treats.

News From Our Growers:

BB’s Gourmet Pretzels: Our Gourmet Pretzels will go great during the Super Bowl or just for a quick snack. Smudges – cinnamon & Sugar, Delicate Heat – sweet/heat flavor, Garlic – rich garlic, savory & buttery flavor, Lemon Pepper – powerful lemon pepper taste.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Craving fresh greens? Our wild rocket arugula is going strong. Our roasted red pepper hummus was a favorite last week, and our elderberry concentrate syrup (now I’m 16 oz. containers) and (new) fire cider (in 8 oz. containers) will help you through the winter illness season. Our Shrubs (drinking vinegars/tonics made with honey) can be added to bubbly or regular water or warmed to make your favorite beverage oh-so-good.

The Sugared Spoon: Last week for Confetti cookies! Look for a new creation for February. Can’t decide what to try? Pick the assortment and message me what you’d like in it!

Mushamo Valley: This week, available is Jake Hates Sprouts are a tasty blend of alfalfa, red clover, broccoli, kale, and burgundy amaranth sprouts. Not merely for invigorating plain ole salads, this blend is well-suited to burgers and sandwiches, sprinkled on tacos or omelets, gently stirred into scramble eggs, or used as a delicious and eye catching soup topper.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: One of my favorite houseplants is Aloe Vera, a kitchen staple to treat burns, skin infections, wounds. Its natural gel has a soothing effect and helps to relieve pain by inhibiting formation of tissue-injuring compounds that gather at the site of a skin injury….Beyond topical use, Aloe Vera juice can be added to vegetarian recipes to give a powerful nutritional punch. This somewhat bitter juice can be disguised in smoothies, juicing recipes and salad dressings. Aloe contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other trace elements that work together to heal and repair the body and boost the immune system.
Whatever the choice is for use, Aloe Vera should be a part of everyone’s kitchen arsenal.

Short Mountain Cultures: Along with our Fermented Foods and Beverages, Bulk Food and by request we now offer Hatcher Dairy products to the market. Available this week Heavy Cream, Half & Half, Chocolate Milk and Cream Top Whole Milk.
