Happy Thanksgiving


We hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. I enjoyed some great foods with my family and friends. Our menu consisted of deviled eggs with eggs from our own chickens, pasture raised turkey raised by our neighbor, mashed potatoes with potatoes fresh from Circle E and corn on the cob I had purchased earlier from one of our vendors, home made buttermilk biscuits and pumpkin pie supplied by a good friend. Good food, good times, and lot’s of leftovers to feed the hubby this weekend at work!

Remember, we will be meeting at Roby Center in Downtown Greeneville this week for drop off and pick up. Roby Center is at the corner of College and Church St, across from the City Hall. Drop off lane can be used to drop off and pick up any orders. I will be inside with any orders placed.

We look forward to seeing you Wednesday between 5 and 5:30 for your order pickup. Have a great weekend!

Halloween Bash


At the Market Oct. 26th :
Silent Farmers, our newest group this year involved in the Farm and Food Teen Training Program at Rural Resources, will be out to greet all the ghouls at the Greeneville Farmers Market Halloween Bash. To help everyone prepare for indoor planting during the late fall and early spring, the teens would love to show and share with you some container gardening ideas, as well as how to implement your potting soil to make your plants good and happy. Show up at the top of each scary hour during market, starting at 9 a.m., to see our gardens and let us share with you. Also, other teens involved in the program will be selling caramel apples for $1.00 to raise money for the program. Come and cover your apple in caramel and then top with your favorite toppings.
