Market is OPEN - Hip Hip Hooray

Good Morning Customers – The Market is OPEN with some NEW ITEMS and some very much anticipated items..BLACKBERRIES..TOMATOES..CORN..OKRA..!!

Hip Hip Hooray its almost Independence Day. Don’t show up empty-handed for the big celebration, our Growers have items that will surely please everyone.

There is ALOT of News from our Growers this week:

Wedge Oak Farm: We are happy to be available on the Market this week. Stock up on Sausages, Chicken, Bacon, Duck and Pork.

Short Mountain Cultures: We have a NEW ITEM… Organic Jasmine Green Tea & Tennessee Mountain Honey Jun! What is Jun you ask? Jun is a sister culture of Kombucha made with green tea and honey instead of black tea and sugar. It’s a delicious fizzy, refreshing alternative to soda. Our Jun comes in 64 oz Growlers and contains naturally occurring probiotic enzymes and beneficial acids. Enjoy our Jun this holiday with your BBQ or any day!

Rainbow Hill Farm: It’s our Blackberry season, enjoy these sweet, delicious berries fresh, in pies, cobblers or preserves. Watch for our Peaches arriving soon.

CS3 Farms: We will have a few pounds of turnips available this week! If you haven’t tried them cubed and soaked in an herbal vinegar and sautéed or roasted in olive oil and drizzled with herbal honey, you are missing out!

Also check out our herbal honey, shrub (drinking vinegar) concentrate, nut butter, Herbal Power Balls, Golden Pecan Bites, Gourmet Mustards, Hummus, and herbal teas.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Yes, it’s hot. Now is a great time to build up your houseplant collection, with aloe vera, many colorful African violets, and several types of Rex begonias available. I also have a couple of nice solid green hanging spider plants, a pretty Creeping Charlie basket, and just two hanging flame violets available. Any of these will look great on a porch or shady patio for the summer but be sure you don’t let them have direct sunlight.

I’m continuing the process of updating availability. There have been some changes to the fresh cut herb and African violet categories, specifically, with more categories to come. In particular, these two categories will have availability updates just about every week.

Happy Fourth of July! Sorry I don’t have any red, white, and blue planters, but if you’d be interested in one for next year’s celebration, feel free to drop me a line and we can discuss something nice. Linda

6R Farms: This week we have Corn, Okra, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Squash, Zucchini, Cabbage and several delicious Pies.

BB’s Gourmet Pretzels: You can never go wrong setting out our 4 flavors of delicious pretzels and gluten free pretzels and don’t forget our Gluten Free Peanut Butter cookies!
