Market is OPEN -- Welcome September


Welcome to this weeks Market, Open until 10 pm Monday. Order early before quantities available run out!

Welcome to September and Labor Day Weekend, the last summer holiday! I have always looked forward to September, probably because its my birthday month. I enjoy seeing the Autumn changes begin. Fall produce pumpkins, squash, corn stalks, apples, pears, fall colors and temperature changes, things seem to slow down a little. For others its “Game Time”, tail gating and road trips, grilling and spending time with friends and family. Our Online Farmers Market can help you with deciding what to prepare for small or large gatherings, a great selection of items to choose from and an opportunity to support your local farmers and artisan. Have a great start to Fall and see you “On the Porch”

Market is OPEN -- One Market till Labor Day weekend


Welcome to this weeks Market, Open until 10 pm Monday. Order early before quantities available run out!

The Market has everything you’ll need to make the last Summer Holiday special.

It seems like August has flown by, schools are back in session, summer plants are starting to slow down and fall plants are gearing up for the cooler weather. I’ve already seem the change in foliage color and the nights seem a little cooler. Fall and Winter produce is beginning to arrive. Roasted Butternut Squash is sounding really good right now! Enjoy the Market this week and thank you for supporting our local Growers. Share our Market with your friends and family, many ‘live’ markets will be closing soon but our Market is open year around except for a short break around Christmas and New Year.

News from our Growers:

From our Meat Producers: Farrar Farms (Beef), Sow’s Ear Piggery (Pork), Caney Fork Farms (Lamb, Pork) Crossing Creeks Farm (Chicken, Beef), Oakview Farm (Chicken) and Quarter Spring Farm (Chicken) all have some great selections of meats to make your meals great. From Beef, Pork, Lamb and Chicken. Grill, roast, broil, boil…delicious anyway you prepare them.

Caney Fork Farms: Try throwing our tender yellow squash on the grill with some Lamb Chops! Our Smoked Bratwursts are great for school lunches as they don’t need to be cooked! Lettuce is back in stock.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s still pretty hot, but the plants know that fall is just around the corner, literally a flip of a calendar page away. The pretty fall bloomers are coming into their own, and will give a great boost to your garden at a time when color can be a little scarce in the perennial garden.

Put together a beautiful fall garden, or fill in a couple of bare spots with fall color. Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has what you need! And with slightly cooler weather and a bit of rain headed our way this week, it will be a good time to plant them.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Try our Wolfberry Mint and Ginger Fig shrubs for a refreshing, nutritious, and tasty drink. Shrubs, sometimes known as tonic or drinking vinegar’s, are good mixed with filtered water, mineral water, kombucha, tea, or your choice of mixed drink. Shrubs have been around for hundreds of years, and have recently been rediscovered due to their natural taste and ingredients and their health benefits. Ours contain only the fruit/herb, vinegar, and Tennessee honey.

Rainbow Hill Farm: Gala, Honeycrisp and Ozark Gold Apples are available this week along with Sweet and Hot peppers, Yellow and Zucchini Squash and Tomatoes.

Flying S Farms: We’ve added Blue Lake Beans, several of our VERY HOT Peppers, Spaghetti Squash, Delicata and Butternut Squash.

Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesday


Welcome to this weeks Market, Open until 10 pm Monday. Order early before quantities available run out!

There are 2 Markets left before the Labor Day weekend, time to get stocked up for the last Holiday of Summer!

Excited to announce a new Grower to the Market, please welcome Quarter Spring Farm from Liberty. They will be offering quartered chicken cuts, raw chicken feet and necks (great for stocks or a natural dog treats!) and goat’s milk soap, unscented and scented this week.

Enjoy the Market this week, many great things to choose from all our Growers.

News From Our Growers:

RnR Farm: back this week with delicious lettuce choices.

Oakview Farm: Fresh whole chicken for sale- the price is reduced from last week so get them while you can! We also have pie pumpkins (great for roasting, grilling or soups), green beans, winter squash and lemon balm available. We don’t use pesticides/chemicals in our garden and our chickens are given a fresh patch of grass everyday with no hormones or antibiotics!

The Sugared Spoon: This week I’ve got Chocolate Cherry Brownies! Cherries folded right into the batter and finished with a white chocolate drizzle. Also, if anyone wants an assorted dozen cookies, just order it as a dozen of chocolate chip and leave me a message to make it assorted. Assorted dozens will come with Choc chip, peanut butter, Snickerdoodle, oatmeal raisin and butterscotch-toffee.

Rainbow Hill Farm: New Apple this week is Ozark Gold, has Golden Delicious in its breeding and is flavorful and more tart, also have the Gala Apples available this week along with Summer Squash, Zucchini, Sweet Peppers and Tomatoes.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): We have two healthy peanut butter alternatives – Sunflower Seed Butter and Pumpkin Seed Butter. Check out our Cardamon Honey and lightly heated Habanero Honey offerings.

Short Mountain Cultures: Highlight this week is GINGER BEET KVASS I never would have thought so many folks in Woodbury would love this Ukrainian sour beverage so much! Beet kvass is definitely what’s up when it’s so dang hot. The electrolytes from the salt are a life saver, not to mention the vitamins and minerals from the beets. And to top it all off the wild yeast fermentation created a slightly sour profile that makes my mouth water.

Flying S Farms: Yukon Gold Potato are available this week in half pound or pound options.

From our Meat Producers: Farrar Farms, Sow’s Ear Piggery, Caney Fork Farms, Crossing Creeks Farm, Oakview Farm and Quarter Spring Farm all have some great selections of meats to make your meals great. From Beef, Pork, Lamb and Chicken. Grill, roast, broil, boil…delicious anyway you prepare them.

Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesday


Welcome to this weeks Market, Open until 10 pm Monday. Order early before quantities available run out!

Congratulation to Our Birthday/Anniversary Drawing recipients: $25 Deborah Hunt, $10 Stacey Owen, $5 Kathy Bobo and $5 Kelsey Wells.

Did you know there are only 3 Markets until the Labor Day weekend, time to get stocked up for the last Holiday of Summer!

Several of our Growers are having the ‘it is the end of Summer’ and it is time to get planting for the Fall Produce season! Coming soon: Lettuce, Radish, Spinach, Onions, Kale, Herbs, Carrots, Arugula, Field Peas, Pumpkins, Winter Squash varieties like Butternut, Spaghetti, Acorn and Carnival.

News From Our Growers:

Oakview Farm: Do you have the Summer Squash Doldrums? Our Early Pumpkins and Early ‘Winter’ Squash available this week and Whole Chickens available this week! Our Chickens have access to a new patch of grass everyday and we supplement their diet with squash and other veggies from our garden, along with layer crumbles. We do not use chemicals on our garden. The proceeds from everything we sell will go towards starting our summer camp for children with hearing loss.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: I’m finally catching up to myself, and have added a few more new things to the market. Look for these and maybe a couple more: Fresh-cut Variegated Oregano, Southern Shield Wood Fern, Citronella geranium (“Mosquito Plant”), and Pilea nummularifolia (“Creeping Charlie”). I’ve expanded the offerings of “Hens & chicks” plants, now with green foliage, red foliage, and an old-fashioned type with smaller leaves but lots of babies.

It might be a little warm to transplant these to your garden right now. But you can always buy now to be sure you have them, and leave them in the pot in a shady area till the temperature drops just a little bit. That’s what they’d be doing at my greenhouse anyway!

I also have a beautiful basket of Rex begonias, a wooden basket with a handle containing two large plants, each in its own gallon pot. This basket would look beautiful on porch or patio for the summer, and inside for winter.

Crossing Creek Farm: Has added 100% Grass-fed Ground Beef to the Market. They raise registered Southpoll Grass Cattle as a 100% grass-fed cow to calf operation. The herd is supplemented with free-choice organic kelp, sea salt and minerals from New Country Organics. This produces an amazingly delicious beef-remember: “cook it low and slow”.

Rainbow Hill Farm: Gala Apples have arrived along with the Gingergolds.

From our Meat Producers: Farrar Farms, Sow’s Ear Piggery, Caney Fork Farms, Crossing Creeks Farm all have some great selections of meats to make your meals great. From Beef, Pork, Lamb and Chicken. Grill, roast, broil, boil…delicious anyway you prepare them.
