Welcome to this weeks Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market. The Market is open from 8:00 am on Sunday Morning and closes 10:00 pm Monday evening. Order early before quantities available run out! https://stonesriver.locallygrown.net
The Market is OPEN…..hope everyone is ready for some wonderful, delicious and helpful and new items on the market this week.
THANK YOU Customers for your patience during our second ‘Curb Service’ in front of Quinn’s Mercantile. Several of you had your name showing as you arrived, very helpful and appreciated.
For those that didn’t see last week Weblog, we made the suggestion: to put your name on your side window. It was very helpful for the ‘Porch’ Assistance’s to see when you drive up. (Sort of like picking up your child at school!) It will help them assemble your order with less waiting.
A special thank you to Tracy Toy owner of Quinn’s Mercantile for hosting the Stones River Market and providing us a place to share and promote the local growers and artisans within the Murfreesboro area. Although the Mercantile is closed during the quaranteen period, you can order unique gifts for everyone, including clothing, home decor, balloons, paint, pet products, and gifts from their website https://quinnsmercantile.com
We have Delivery Service available within a 10 mile radius of Murfreessboro and will deliver to Woodbury to a host location.
News from Some of Growers:
Welcome Emerald Acres located in Eagleville. She will be providing the market with flowers and later in the season produce. This week she has a beautiful bouquet of Ranunculus that will surely brighten your day during this quarantine time.
Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have more Miners Lettuce, Forage Greens, Red Pepper Hummus, and some brand new Herbal Honeys!…..Want an alternative to your typical salad? Get our Miner’s Lettuce, full of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Iron. Our Forage Greens are tasty, nutrient dense, and quite delicious, too….. Try our new Spearmint Honey and Spring Tonic Honey, with Violets, Dandelions, and Orange Blossom Honey.
Mama D’s Bakery: 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.
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: The 10" Lettuce Bowls, a great way to get your salad mix, are gorgeous! More perennials are blooming, including carnations, dianthus, creeping phlox, geraniums, and pincushion plants. Needing some new landscaping? Try our azaleas! For the herb garden, we have spearmint plants and creeping rosemary, with more coming. The tall variegated and dwarf Solomon’s seals will really brighten your wildflower garden.
Oakview Farm: We have fresh and dried herbs, along with turkey, chicken and duck eggs. If you haven’t tried a turkey egg, they are scrumptious! They have a big beautiful yolk; great on a burger or a biscuit. One turkey egg is about the size of three small chicken eggs and they only lay in the Spring. Get them while you can. We are waiting for our microgreens to grow to baby salad mix and our spinach to grow to maturity.
Wedge Oak Farm: has come up with a new, fresh Springtime sausage! Wedge Oak Farm pasture-raised pork, salt, pepper, wild onion, wine and hog casing.
Flying S Farms: Low Sugar Peachy Jam and Low Sugar Strawberry Jam is now available. Enjoy our Sour Cream or Buttermilk Biscuits with almost anything!
