Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesdayon the "CURB"
Welcome to this weeks Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market. Reminder…Market is open until 10pm tonight.
Sending out another Weblog as a reminder for tonight but also a couple of our Growers wanted to send you a message.
Farrar Farm LLC.: Unfortunately is out of stock of 1 pound ground beef but has a good assortment of roasts and a few steaks.
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Brighten up your day with some our perennials. All the very early spring perennials are still available, and in addition a bunch of new ones have joined them recently. Unfortunately I cannot make them all featured, which is why I list them here. The very early azaleas are blooming, including my personal favorite, the white streaked with a little pink, and my other personal favorite, the pink with throat markings, both fall rebloomers. Another shrub in bloom right now is flowering almond, which really deserves a spot in your garden. The dwarf coreopsis is just beginning its long bloom cycle, and several mints are growing well. Three woodland phlox are blooming, including both purple and pink stolonifera as well as blue divaricata. These three will really light up your spring shady areas……Very new to the market this week, and very special, are the “Stacked Planters”. I have put some together with hardy herbs and some with hardy succulents, and am impatiently waiting till warmer weather to plant some with tender succulents. These planters have three layers which can be disassembled and rearranged as much as you like. I will be glad to bring one in to place on the market table for you to see if you’d like. Just drop me an email and let me know.Brighten up you day..week..and months ahead with perennials and few annuals.
Here is Sundays Weblog in case you’ve missed it.
News from Some of Growers:
Welcome ‘Mama D’s Bakery:’
We are sisters who make baked goods from organic, non-gmo ingredients that taste really good and are good for you. We make donuts, cookies, breads, rolls, pies, cakes, muffins, danishes, scones and more. We use healthy fats such as avocado, coconut and olive oil and butter, and we sweeten with organic raw sugars, honey, and maple syrup. We have spent years perfecting our recipes and continue to do so. We love what we do, and we enjoy making food that tastes good and is good for you.
Oakview Farm: has turkey eggs! These large and delicious eggs are great for baking or for a hearty breakfast. Top a sunny side up turkey egg with our wonderful spring microgreens mix (mustard, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi and beets). We also have multicolored chicken and duck eggs, dried rosemary and fresh kale available.
Quarter Spring Farm: wants to say thank you to all of our customers for their support. We have sold out of chicken cuts for the time being, but we still have delicious whole birds available. We also have tons of goat milk soap, so wash your hands like the CDC recommends. Our goat milk soaps are made to be great for your skin, so you can pamper while you protect.
Thanks again, and stay healthy JB
