News From Our Growers:

Rainbow Hill Farm: FREE STONE PEACHES have arrived, Blackberries still available.

6R Farms: We have added Mountain Fresh Tomatoes available by the pound, basket or box, Sweet Corn, Okra, Green Beans and Jalapeno Peppers.

Caney Fork Farms: We now have Pork along with Lamb items on the market this week along with assorted produce.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): We are back from Florida, where it is hot and humid — just like home! We have another ”traditional” tea available. We are adding Oolong tea because it, like many herbs and other teas, has been demonstrated to have antioxidant properties. It also tastes quite good. We may have some sweet potato greens available, but not a whole lot. If you haven’t eaten sweet potato greens, they are a mild leaf that can be substituted for spinach or a thin lettuce leaf and eaten raw or cooked.
We have more turnips available as well as our herbal honeys, shrub (drinking vinegar) concentrates, nut butters, and other deliciousness.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: will be updating pork listings in 2-3 weeks once a butcher date is set. We hope our customers will be patient for our new products, as this will probably be the best pork we’ve raised and offered for sale.

Flying S Farms: Assorted Cherry tomatoes are back! Ranging from Black Cherry, 2 Bites, Sungolds, Amy’s Apricot, Purple Bumble Bee and more! Sorry some of our Summer Squash and Zucchini have suffered from the heat and rains this past week. We are replanting and will be back on the market soon.

Mo’Scrubs by Toya: taking a brief break will return next week.
