News from Our Growers:

Trinity Rose Oberhasli Dairy Goats: One of our most requested products is back online this week…this week we will have Chevre Cheese and Garlic & Dill Cheese available this week. Special request, please return any of the 1/2 gallon jars you may have received when you purchased milk from us….please!

Farrar Farm LLC: We have a new item this week. Teres Major Steaks! They are tender and flavorful and very economical, also great on the grill!

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have delicious microgreens, farmed and foraged salad greens, and gourmet herbal mustard.

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

Remember foraged greens? Now we have Farmed and Foraged greens. This blend is a great tame & wild hybrid salad complement or substitute, it’s awesome on sandwiches, and it is quite delicious topping a burger or other sandwich.

We also (finally) have a new batch of our Scarborough Fair Mustard. The herbs include parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, and they give just about any sandwich, salad, or meat/vegetable dish a touch of heat backed by a delicious whole mouth wow.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We have restocked several varieties of tomato plants, just a few of each. When these are gone, I doubt if I will be able to restock. Most of the herbs are large enough to join your garden, and there will be a couple more added in the near future. If you need a particular herb, let me know and I’ll try to find it.

The astilbes are beginning to bloom in shade and part shade; the daylilies and Shasta daisies in sun and part sun. The ferns are finally getting large enough to be added to your garden, and I’ve included several varieties on the market. They, along with the foam flower and hostas, will really brighten your shady areas. The green sedum is now flowering, and its cheerful yellow star-shaped flowers will enhance the more sunny areas of a garden.

I have just one more Lettuce Bowl, and won’t be making any more this spring. This beautiful and tasty “living salad” can be yours if you act quickly!

Please note that I will be updating my quantities available of perennials and herb plants on Monday morning. If you’re looking for something in particular, please check back then.

Flying S Farms: Unfortunate news about our popular 7-Grain Sour Dough Bread, we unable to obtain the 7 grain berries from Montana Wheat Co. they are no longer making the grain mix! I will continue to look for another supplier.

Yes, I will keep trying to get our Jams and Jellies back on the market when we have 36 hours in a day haha!
Hang in there with me, they will be back I promise.

Look forward seeing you “At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday May 27th 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.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have fresh greens, herbal honey, and two flavors of hummus.

We have a few more heads of delicious red lettuce, some tatsoi (taste and consistency is somewhere between spinach and chard) and mustard greens. They aren’t ready yet, but we are also working on some micro greens.

We also have more of our tasty gourmet Apicius and Hot Thyme Red Wine Mustards. They give both meat and vegetables a light amount of heat backed by a delicious whole mouth taste.

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!

Flying S Farms: Unfortunately we will not have Artisan Breads available this week, ‘not enough hours in a day’ phrase fits us to a ‘T’…they will be back available soon.

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.

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.

News From Our Growers:

Trinity Rose Oberhasli Dairy Goats: The time has arrived that the ladies have been busy producing delicious Raw Pet Goat Milk. Coming soon: Cheese and Kefir. (Appreciate returned Jars)

Oakview Farm: has fresh kale, mustard, arugula and a salad greens mix on sale this week. We also have a variety of fresh cut herbs: parsley, thyme, garlic chives and lemon balm. Our napa cabbage, which doesn’t like this warmer weather, is starting to head so we are selling the crunchy green leaves for your lettuce wraps, salads and stir fries.

Carole Herbs (CS3 Farm): We have chives, greens,and hummus, and a question.

Check out our chives for a nutritious and delicious onion flavor for omelettes, salads, or dinner meals. Chives contain a lot of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

We have more forest greens and miners lettuce, as well as a few more heads of fresh-picked red and green lettuce available. Our miner’s lettuce is good as a lettuce or spinach supplement or alternative, so it can be added to salad or can be used cooked or sautéed with your choice of eggs, vegetables, or meat.

We also have a fresh new batch of red pepper hummus available, and if you haven’t had it, you haven’t lived. Well, at least not to the fullest!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It seems as though everything in the greenhouse is starting to bloom at once. Here are a few highlights, but you will find more new things on the pages.

For shade or part shade: hostas, Siberian bugloss, Coral bells, some of the ferns, foam flower and its cousin foamy bells. These will all combine well with some of our many colors of Azaleas, which are still blooming well.

For sun or part sun: Columbine, Geraniums, Lambs ear, Penstemon, Pincushion Flower, white Salvia,Yarrow, and
Tradescantia.

All the phloxes are now in bloom, and all three are natives in this area. Do you know the differences? Creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) is often used in rock gardens and edgings in full or part sun. It’s a low plant to 6 inches that fills in empty spaces nicely. Phlox divaricata and P. stolonifera are both woodland plants which prefer partial shade. They are both quite a bit taller than P. subulata, around a foot tall in bloom.

The first of the “Garden in a Vase” carnations are here! These first bouquets will be mixed red and pink, but otherwise similar to the photo.

And the “Fresh cut” Herbs are beginning! This week we have available Lemon Balm and Chocolate Mint, with more to follow next week.

Flying S Farms: 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.

Our lemon hand scrub is popular these days because of all the constant hand washing. “Lemonade” is packed with organic sugar to exfoliate your hands and a blend of oils that will leave them soft and hydrated.

If you’re suffering from allergies or sinus problems, try “Breathe Again,” a natural alternative to Vicks! This essential oil blend will open up your sinuses and it’s also great for nausea and migraines.

And, of course, we still have turkey, duck and chicken eggs!

Hope this tip helps!

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!

Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesdayon the "CURB"


Welcome to this weeks Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market. Reminder…Market is open until 10pm tonight.

Sending out another Weblog as a reminder for tonight but also a couple of our Growers wanted to send you a message.

Farrar Farm LLC.: Unfortunately is out of stock of 1 pound ground beef but has a good assortment of roasts and a few steaks.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Brighten up your day with some our perennials. All the very early spring perennials are still available, and in addition a bunch of new ones have joined them recently. Unfortunately I cannot make them all featured, which is why I list them here. The very early azaleas are blooming, including my personal favorite, the white streaked with a little pink, and my other personal favorite, the pink with throat markings, both fall rebloomers. Another shrub in bloom right now is flowering almond, which really deserves a spot in your garden. The dwarf coreopsis is just beginning its long bloom cycle, and several mints are growing well. Three woodland phlox are blooming, including both purple and pink stolonifera as well as blue divaricata. These three will really light up your spring shady areas……Very new to the market this week, and very special, are the “Stacked Planters”. I have put some together with hardy herbs and some with hardy succulents, and am impatiently waiting till warmer weather to plant some with tender succulents. These planters have three layers which can be disassembled and rearranged as much as you like. I will be glad to bring one in to place on the market table for you to see if you’d like. Just drop me an email and let me know.Brighten up you day..week..and months ahead with perennials and few annuals.

Here is Sundays Weblog in case you’ve missed it.

Welcome ‘Mama D’s Bakery:’
We are sisters who make baked goods from organic, non-gmo ingredients that taste really good and are good for you. 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. We have spent years perfecting our recipes and continue to do so. We love what we do, and we enjoy making food that tastes good and is good for you.

Oakview Farm: has turkey eggs! These large and delicious eggs are great for baking or for a hearty breakfast. Top a sunny side up turkey egg with our wonderful spring microgreens mix (mustard, broccoli, kale, kohlrabi and beets). We also have multicolored chicken and duck eggs, dried rosemary and fresh kale available.

Quarter Spring Farm: wants to say thank you to all of our customers for their support. We have sold out of chicken cuts for the time being, but we still have delicious whole birds available. We also have tons of goat milk soap, so wash your hands like the CDC recommends. Our goat milk soaps are made to be great for your skin, so you can pamper while you protect.
Thanks again, and stay healthy JB

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): Our new overnight oatmeal (with or without nuts) will give you a healthy option for breakfast (or anytime) meals packed with protein, dietary fiber, healthy fat, and a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals.

A bit stressed by the world events? Try our Revitalizing Bath Salt, with Dead Sea Salt, Epson Salt, and Himalayan Salt.

In the culinary department, our Black Hawaiian Salt adds a delicious, light smokiness to any food, and is good for you, too (in moderation).

We have a few servings of forage greens, miner’s lettuce, and arugula left to harvest. If you see it’s not available on Sunday, check back on Monday as we reevaluate our growth.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: We still has excellent small batch of pork cuts. Chops, cutlets, ground pork. Don’t be afraid of shoulder steaks or fresh ham steaks.

Several Breads available; Sour Dough, Artisan style and Friendship Breads, most all these breads make delicious as ‘French Toast’!
