Market is OPEN -- One Market till Labor Day weekend

Welcome to this weeks Market, Open until 10 pm Monday. Order early before quantities available run out!

The Market has everything you’ll need to make the last Summer Holiday special.

It seems like August has flown by, schools are back in session, summer plants are starting to slow down and fall plants are gearing up for the cooler weather. I’ve already seem the change in foliage color and the nights seem a little cooler. Fall and Winter produce is beginning to arrive. Roasted Butternut Squash is sounding really good right now! Enjoy the Market this week and thank you for supporting our local Growers. Share our Market with your friends and family, many ‘live’ markets will be closing soon but our Market is open year around except for a short break around Christmas and New Year.

News from our Growers:

From our Meat Producers: Farrar Farms (Beef), Sow’s Ear Piggery (Pork), Caney Fork Farms (Lamb, Pork) Crossing Creeks Farm (Chicken, Beef), Oakview Farm (Chicken) and Quarter Spring Farm (Chicken) all have some great selections of meats to make your meals great. From Beef, Pork, Lamb and Chicken. Grill, roast, broil, boil…delicious anyway you prepare them.

Caney Fork Farms: Try throwing our tender yellow squash on the grill with some Lamb Chops! Our Smoked Bratwursts are great for school lunches as they don’t need to be cooked! Lettuce is back in stock.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s still pretty hot, but the plants know that fall is just around the corner, literally a flip of a calendar page away. The pretty fall bloomers are coming into their own, and will give a great boost to your garden at a time when color can be a little scarce in the perennial garden.

Put together a beautiful fall garden, or fill in a couple of bare spots with fall color. Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has what you need! And with slightly cooler weather and a bit of rain headed our way this week, it will be a good time to plant them.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Try our Wolfberry Mint and Ginger Fig shrubs for a refreshing, nutritious, and tasty drink. Shrubs, sometimes known as tonic or drinking vinegar’s, are good mixed with filtered water, mineral water, kombucha, tea, or your choice of mixed drink. Shrubs have been around for hundreds of years, and have recently been rediscovered due to their natural taste and ingredients and their health benefits. Ours contain only the fruit/herb, vinegar, and Tennessee honey.

Rainbow Hill Farm: Gala, Honeycrisp and Ozark Gold Apples are available this week along with Sweet and Hot peppers, Yellow and Zucchini Squash and Tomatoes.

Flying S Farms: We’ve added Blue Lake Beans, several of our VERY HOT Peppers, Spaghetti Squash, Delicata and Butternut Squash.
