Market News

Happy first day of May!

Carol with Rainbow Hill Farm called us this morning letting us know that they are back on the market with lettuce this week AND they are now USDA Certified Organic! Congratulations!!

Linda from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added a great hanging basket full of kitchen herb necessities customized by your tastes.

This Hanging Herb Garden is a porch or patio eye-catcher and ingredients for your next gourmet meal, all in one! Made especially for you or your loved one from herbs I have in the greenhouse, this special basket is sure to please gardener and gourmet alike. It’s easy care too – just water frequently and fertilize every two weeks per package directions to keep these herb plants growing strong all summer. The 14" diameter basket pictured contains, from center back, clockwise: Parsley, English Thyme, Variegated Oregano, and Purple Sage. All plants are large enough to begin harvesting. Specify in the comments which four herbs you would like me to use to customize your basket, and add an alternate choice as availability is somewhat limited. Available are the following: Sweet Basil, Lemon Balm, Oregano (Greek or variegated), Sage (Common, Golden, Purple), Thyme (Common, English, Lemon, Lime, or Silver-Edged), Salad Burnet, and Stevia

Double Star Bar Farms spring festival was postponed until May 14 due to forecasted storms. Mark your calendars! They will have items for sale, music, talks on cheesemaking, mushroom logs and more! Entry is just $5! While you are thinking of Double Star, think bagels! We know we do :D and appreciate every effort that Rod and Maura put into all they do! We hope this bit of rain gives them more and more asparagus to enjoy while its season lasts.

Thank you Jenny with Seeds of Success for setting up a sampling table and having plenty of extras to sell. It is always wonderful to meet our producers/growers and most of us enjoy meeting our valued customers.

Jenny has been working hard on new raw/dehydrated items for you. This week she offers decadent, dark chocolate Schatzie bites! (Don’t let the word dark in front of chocolate scare you away… these are DELICIOUS!)

We have eggs, eggs, eggs! Flying S , West Wind Farms , Wedge Oak all offer plenty of eggs right now!

Produce continues to roll in and be incredibly delicious and beautiful. Rocky Glade , Frontier Family and White City Produce are all keeping the produce department stocked very well for early season eating!

There is so much to be thankful for at all times and this is a time of abundance and spring renewal. May your days be abundant and your bodies and minds renewed this week. We thank you for your continued support of our market.

See you all Wednesday,

I apologize for another email this morning but have needed to send this since last Wednesday after pickup.

If anyone accidentally picked up a cheap, scratched pair of brown eyeglasses (not sunglasses and not readers) I would love to have them back.

They usually lay on the checkout table next to the register. We looked everywhere at L & L and through all our market things so I am hoping they show up in someone’s bag :D.

THANK YOU!!

Tracey

The market is open!

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!

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!
