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.

See you there,
Judy Shelton
CEO

Market News







 

New Items are coming in weekly. While not all our vendors are on the online store, we want to keep you as informed as possible. From what I am told, we will have Cherries, onions and beets June 14th at the market. Circle E Beef will not be able to make the market, so be sure to get your order in so it can be delivered for your pickup.

Did you know that Greeneville Farmers Market accepts SNAP Benefits? And to help you stretch your food dollars even further, we are offering up to $10 in "matching funds". When you purchase up to $10 in SNAP Benefits, we will double your purchase. Tokens need to bought at the market and exchanged for the purchase in person only. Stop by the information desk for more details.

Coming Events


Rural Resources Kids will be at the Market with a Worm Composting Display, and will be happy to tell you about the benefits of this technique of compost. Stop by and have a talk with them, and then visit our farmers and get to know them.

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

Things are picking up!!


It’s hard to believe we are already into June. Where is the time going? Seems every week goes by faster and faster. In the gardens, tomatoes are growing, beans are sprouting, grapes are coming along. I’m told we will have Cherries at the market this week, and lots of lettuce and eggs. Apple Town Bagels will not be at market this weekend, so if you want some of those, please place your order before Wednesday, so I can pick them up Thursday when I meet with Kelly.

Looking forward to seeing all of you Saturday!

Market Manager

What's Growing?


Good Afternoon!

The weather is certianly warming up! But, it looks like our temps will take a little bit of a dip later this week. That is fine for me, and all the plants growing. It will be good to get a taste of spring this week.

Don’t forget, pick up is now at the Market on Saturdays, from 8 am to 12 PM. The Market is located at the Greene County Fairgrounds, under the livestock pavilion. Don’t take a chance on your favorite vendor NOT being at the market. Place your orders online to ensure delivery on Saturdays. And pick up your extras while there.

Physical Market Now Open


While you can still order online, to assure you will get your favorite foods from your favorite farmers, we are now open for the 2014 season at the Greene County Fairgrounds.

Orders will now be placed from Monday Thru Thursday, and you will pick the orders up at the Greeneville Farmers Market, located at the Greene County Fairgrounds, under the livestock pavilion.

Be sure to stop by and say hi to all our new vendors and welcome back our regulars. This Saturday, May 10th, we will be hosting a Mother’s Day Celebration. Mom can get a free 5 minute chair Massage from AT Massage Therapy, while the kids make her a special card at our Kids Table.

We will have special vendors to help you finish off your Mother’s Day shopping, with representatives from companies like Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Avon, Thirty One and many others.

Say it loud!


SPRING IS HERE! Shout it from the tops of your roofs and put a song in your heart. Spring has finally sprung, and it feels great to be outside again.

The baby chicks and the garden are all growing so fast, and I’m loving every minute of it!

The week of May 3rd, Opening day, we will be under the Andrew Johnson Pavilion, with live entertainment, Pizza Inn with Pizza By the Slice and cinnomon rolls, live entertainment by local artist Jody Hall, and WoodyJRadio.com will be broadcasting live! It is shaping up to be a wonderful day.

On May 10th, we will be having a Mother’s Day Celebration, where kids can make Mom a card, get that last minute gift from one of our many speciality vendors like Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Thirty One, and many others.

In the mean time, enjoy some fresh lettuce, eggs or bread from Cloud 9 Ranch; carrots, or goat milk products from The Ole Farm House; fresh grass fed beef from Circle E Longhorn, and many other goodies from our online vendors.

New Items in the Market


We can finally offer some fresh new items in our market. Limited quantities of carrots from The Ole Farm House and Mixed Loose Lettuce from Cloud 9 Ranch. Put these two items together, and you are well on your way to an awesomely fresh salad!

Strawberry plants are also now available for sale from Cloud 9 Ranch.

Be sure to check back next week to see what new items have been added! And don’t forget to check out Baker Bob’s fresh breads. Check out his farm page for more information on his breads.

We hope everyone has a great week, and are able to enjoy the beautiful days we have been getting!

It's Official!!


Spring is officially here, but Old Man Winter does not want to give up just yet! With another round of wet and cold hitting us this weekend, it’s proving to be a real chore to get things done on the farm to prepare our gardens. Yet, according to the weather, we are behind in our annual precipitation. How does that add up?

The Ole Farm House has two bunches of carrots this week, and boy, are they pretty!!

And our newest vendor, Bob’s Breads has a really nice looking Sourdough Rye that looks pretty good too! This Sourdough Rye bread is specially made, and takes 24 hours to prepare. If you wish to order this particular bread, please remember to order before Tuesday, or it will be the following week before they can deliver.

Just a few more weeks and we will be opening the physical market, and I am looking for to it!
