News from The Manager: Can you believe it, it is our’ Twelfth’ week offering Curb side delivery! Some have asked it we will be continuing this service, we will eventually get back “On The Porch” anticipating July 1st BUT will continue to offer Curb Side for those that request it and Delivery Service will remain available.

I believe Summer has actually arrived, several summer vegetables are beginning to arrive on the market, I’m excited to get the grill out and grill up some zucchini, onions, and yellow squash and figure out if I want Pork, Chicken or Beef with it! Of course all from our Growers!

News from Our Growers:

Mama D’s Bakery: We have added our Soft Pretzels they are a family favorite that we all enjoy with a movie night and a little mustard. We hope y’all enjoy them as much as we do.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have Speckled Pea and Sunflower Microgreens, Revitalizing Bath Salt, Black Hawaiian Salt, and delicious and nutritious Shrubs.

Want to make sure your salad has some texture and taste? Add some microgreens. Delicious sunflower and speckled pea micros will add nutrition to your smoothie, complement or replace your fresh lettuce salad, or garnish a vegetable or meat dish of your choice.

When your day definitely could go better, add a bit of our Revitalizing Bath Salt to your hot water bath and let the day’s troubles evaporate. Our delicious Black Hawaiian Salt adds a delicious, light smokiness to any food, and is also good for you (in moderation).

Try a gut-healthy Ginger-Fig or Wolfberry Mint shrub/tonic for great taste combined with nutritious ingredients. Use them also for a salad dressing.

Quarter Springs Farm: we have updated our selection of reusable cloth napkins available through the Stone’s River market. Our new summer styles are just what your kitchen table needs to be stylish, eco-conscious, and economical. Show your style while you save the trees.

Oakview Farm: We have two different varieties of Zucchini this week, yes..they both taste different from each other.

RnR Farm: Full lineup of lettuce available: green and red leaf, butterhead, romaine, and lettuce blend.

New this week are two types of zucchini: traditional green zucchini and an Italian heirloom called Costata Romanesca.

We also have a limited supply of rainbow Swiss Chard, so get it while you can!

Rainbow Hill Farm: Will return in few weeks with their delicious produce…and they will have peaches coming soon!

Flying S Farms: This week we have Beets, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Garlic Scapes, Kale, Swiss Chard, Onions, Yellow Squash and Zucchini. Our popular Almost Seedless Blackberry Jam and Almost Seedless Black Raspberry Jam, Strawberry and Low Sugar Strawberry is back in stock.
