When the Market is OPEN, please check again over the next 2 days as some of our Growers may be updating their inventories.

Update your address, phone numbers, email address etc. This information is necessary if we need to contact you and especially for deliveries and emails when invoicing.

THANK YOU Customers for your patience again during our ‘Seventh’ ‘Semi-Curb Service’ in front of Quinn’s Mercantile. “Pull-up or Step-up”! to pick up your orders Wednesday afternoon. Curb Service is still available but will be a ‘tighter’ setup. We will have the canopy set up so you can drive up or you are welcome to park across the street and walk to the canopy to pickup your order using social distancing. We want to leave the area in front of Quinn’s for their customers.

Delivery Service is available within a 10 mile radius of Murfreessboro, outside areas will be considered and delivery is available to Woodbury at a host location. Please be sure to put your address in comments when you check out.

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone that fills this amazing position and those special memories of those that have passed on.

News from Our Growers:

Oakview Farm and Wedge Oak Farm are back this week after updating and restocking their inventory.

Mo’s Scrubs by Toya: we have restocked our super popular anti bacterial hand gel, named ‘TOUCH IT’, to the market. This hand gel is made with 91% alcohol and an essential oil blend that helps fight germs.

Quarter Spring Farm: Did you forget to get mom a gift? No worries. Quarter Spring Farm can help you out with one of our amazing goat milk soaps. And don’t forget a treat for mom’s dog. Raw chicken feet make a great snack for Fido, too.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm)We have fresh greens, gourmet mustard, and two flavors of hummus.

We have a few heads of delicious red lettuce! Our mustard greens are pushing through the spring weather craziness if you’d like a little bite in your greens. Our miner’s lettuce will be used in limited supply in our forage greens, which can not only be eaten as lettuce but can also be cooked like spinach.

We have more of our best/selling Apicius Mustard. It’s an ancient Roman hummus recipe with pine nuts and almonds. We also have some more of our Hot Thyme Red Wine Mustard.

Try our new toasted pine nut hummus or roasted red pepper hummus. They are delicious on breads, crackers, salads, or even soups (hummus is a great meat/protein alternative).

We also have herbal honey, tonics/shrubs, herbal teas, and traditional teas to brighten your day!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: we have tomato and pepper plants to replace the ones you lost this past weekend in the unexpected freeze. Since I don’t have a huge stock, if I run out or don’t have the variety you want, please message me your additional requests, and I will try to fill them. But please plan not to plant till the end of May. The weather has been unpredictable this year, with a long, cool spring (my daffodils lasted 2 weeks longer than usual!) which has kept the soil unusually cool. Tomatoes and peppers like nice warm feet for best growth, and will not really do much till mid-June anyway.

I also have a good variety of herb plants available, but with the same comments as above. I don’t have many of any one, but will be glad to try to restock what you’re looking for. Just drop me a note. I’m unlikely to have many more Fresh cut herbs for a while.

I also have some new perennials coming into bloom, notably the very early daylilies for sun and the astilbes for the shade garden. Surely you can find a spot for a couple of these beauties!

Flying S Farms: Produce this week..Kohlrabi, Red Russian Kale, Small Head Cabbage, Swiss Chard, Radishes, Salad Onions, Green Garlic and Pac Choi.

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday May 13th 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.
