Leaving the area in front of Quinn’s for their customers.

We have Delivery Service available within a 10 mile radius of Murfreessboro and will deliver to Woodbury to a host location. Please put your address in comments when you check out.

News From Our Growers:

Mother’s Day idea’s..Mo’s Scrubs, several items to pamper anyone with, JillianFaithArt will brighten anyone’s day! Mama D’s Bakery you can never go wrong giving Donuts or any of their wonderful items! Farrar Farm great meat choice to roast, grill, fry or bake. Flying S Farms jams and jellies are always wonderful to give as gifts or special occasions.Carole Herbs (CS3 Farm) Their tea selection havee great choices for gifting.

Wedge Oak Farm: we will be taking this week off from Stones River Market. We process chicken and hogs this week and will be back loaded with product next week.

Nom Noms Dog Treats: has the perfect Doggie Mothers Day gift – treats and toys. Not only are the treats gluten/wheat free, cruelty free, and deliciously nutritious but the packaging and toy are Mother Earth Friendly also. The braided rope doggie toys are durable and made from cotton. The reusable jar is air tight with a lid and band. No frustrating label to pick off since we used stock card and twine instead of a plastic sticker label. Reuse the jar over and over, and compost the label and twine. Each treat jar comes with 1 braided dog toy.

Carole Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have fresh greens, gourmet mustard, and a new hummus.

We have more forest greens and miners lettuce. Both are a nutrient-dense (filling) lettuce or spinach alternative/supplement, so they can be used for breakfast (smoothies/eggs), lunch (salads), and dinner (as a salad or side vegetable). We also have just a few bunches of mustard greens to add a kick to anything you eat (fresh or cooked). Our lettuce is in time-out while it grows, with more coming along fast.

We (finally) have a fresh new batch of our best/selling Apicius Mustard. It’s an ancient Roman recipe with pine nuts and almonds. You needn’t speak Latin to love it, but if you do feel free to share!

And speaking of pine nuts, try our new (and delicious) toasted pine nut hummus. It’s best on anything you can imagine, like breads, crackers, salads, or even soups (it’s made with garbanzo beans so it is a great meat/protein alternative).

We also have herbal teas, traditional teas, and a few herbal honeys to brighten your day!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Strawberry hanging baskets are ready! They are a lot fuller than the early photo indicates, and they each have several early berries now ripe, for an immediate taste treat.

And a few of the larger tomato and pepper plants are ready! I will have more varieties of tomatoes in a couple weeks, as they were started pretty late and need a little more time to grow. But those who know me, know that I say wait till May 15 to plant vegetable plants, anyway, as the soil will be warmer and will hasten growth after planting.

Lettuce Bowls are back! Loaded with a variety of direct-seeded plants, they will make great-tasting cut-and-come-again salads for some time.

I still have a good selection of azalea bushes. Although they are no longer blooming, they will make a good green addition to your landscape, as you wait for next spring’s blooms.

The herbs are growing well, and from week to week I will have different Fresh Cuts and some live plants to sell. I listed a couple, but some are already sold out. I still have lots of Elderberry bushes, but when they are gone, they are gone for this year. Since it would be better for them to be transplanted before the summer heat arrives, you should plan to get yours soon.

Flying S Farms: Swiss Card, Pac Choy, Radishes, Green Garlic and Salad onions. Added Super Mini (6) and Mini (3) Artisan Boule think of them like small biscuits or rolls.

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday May 6th from 5:00 – 6:30pm, please contact me if you are unable to make delivery or are running late, please phone, email or text me so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.
