Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesday

Welcome to this weeks Market. The Market opens 8am on Sunday Morning and closes 10 pm Monday evening. Order early before quantities available run out!

Think about “Stocking UP” during the next 3 markets. There are only 3 Markets left for 2019. The Market will be closed the week of Christmas and New Years and will reopen January 5th 2020!

News From Our Growers:

Stones River Market: Can’t decide what to get a friend, family, teacher for Christmas and/or the New Year…think GIFT CERTIFICATES to the Market! Let’s them select what they want from our list of Growers.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: We hope everyone enjoyed a Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends. Now that we have all had our fill of turkey, let’s think about pork! Cutlets, chops, shoulder roasts, and sausages are available again this week. As always, out pork is natural, non-GMO, and raised outdoors. * Please note: Our current products come from an especially lean breed, so we recommend marinades and cooking methods with oils and broths that will bring moisture to these cuts.

Farrar Farm LLC: We are having a RIB SALE this week. Short Ribs and Korean style ribs for $5.00 a pound! 2 pound minimum. Use the quantity selection to select the approximate number of pounds you want and the price will be adjusted at checkout.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): We have some tasty arugula for salads and your favorite cooking choices. Also check out our shrub concentrates for a delicious sweet/sour drink or salad/dessert enhancement. Our herbal honeys make anything taste excellent – especially leftovers.

Crossing Creeks Farm: Returning this week with 110% Grass-fed Ground Beef, Pasture Raised Chicken and Delicious Bone Broth.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We have a good selection of wrapped Christmas cacti and African violets for gift-giving, or just to add some color to your own holiday decorations. I’m trying to keep the availability updated to reflect the plants currently in bloom. But if you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask.

Here’s a teaser: just think – it’s only about two months till daffodil time! I may have some surprises for you this year (no promises). But first, we’ll have to survive whatever wintry goodness Mother Nature throws our way. The woolly bear caterpillars say it’s going to be a hard one!

Wedge Oak Farm: Chicken and Duck Eggs along with Holiday Goose, Pekin Duck, Pork and Chicken along with our Specialty Sausages, Brats and Bacon.

Spring Meadow Farm: There is always room for PIES! We have Bacon Cheese Quiche along with several pies that will compliment your Holiday and any meal: Chess, Chocolate, Coconut Cream, Lemon Meringue, Pecan and Pumpkin.

Rainbow Hill Farm: Apples available this week; Mutsu and Yellow Delicious.

Flying S Farms: Plenty of our Jams and Jelly in stock for the Holiday Season.

Valentine Family Farm: We will be closing our sales until spring. We had a good season this year. And were grateful for our customers. Happy Holidays.

Caney Fork Farms: Our Winter Season schedule with the Market will be monthly, delivering on December 18th, January 22nd, February 26th and March 25th, returning weekly in April 2020.
