p(. Featured Vendor: Apple Town Bagels
We import bagels and bread from Brooklyn, NY in bulk and pack them for resale at local markets. The founders of Apple Town Bagels arrived in Erwin, TN when the home made balloon they used to escape the Peoples Republic of New England crash landed in Rock Creek Park. The wonderful people of Unicoi County granted Kelly and Joyce political asylum and they quickly set up a homestead on an acre of land just outside the city limits. 
One day Kelly had a craving for an onion bagel, so he went shopping. He went to super markets in three counties but alas he had no luck. Being the resourceful fellow that he is, Kelly started calling every bagel shop he could find in the five boroughs of New York City. Three days later a man named JJ agreed to sell him some onion bagels but he had to take a pallet of 45 cases.
Kelly said “Great, I will figure out what to do with the other 44 cases when they arrive!”
Lucky for Kelly he had a neighbor with a little extra freezer space so he would have a place to keep them fresh. A few days later his mom found a little deli downtown they could lease for a few months. The store is now closed but our bagels are still available through outlets like this. The rest as they say is history! I hope you enjoyed this some what true tale.

Thanks for Shopping with us.

Physical Market Closes for Season

Winter is coming….brrrrrr! So our Physical Market has closed. We had a great Halloween Bash. Thanks to all who came out.If you were not able to make it, I will be posting pictures on our Face Book Page over the next few days. We had several Kids enter the Costume and Pumpkin Painting Contest this year. Great Vendors, with a variety of things available. Apple Town Bagels did a great job of providing breakfast for both vendors and customers.

Thanks Greeneville for a great season.

BUT IT’S NOT OVER YET !.. That’s right, we are available year round, right here on….

Some of our vendors grow year round in Green Houses Now…and we are encouraging them to make those products available to you the consumer, right here year round. If one of these farmers or artisans happens to be you or your neighbor, friend or relative…have them give me a call, (423) 552-3023 or have them check out this website to get signed up.

You don’t have to have a farm either, you can be a backyard gardener, that just has “xtras” and wants to make a little spending money.

Check out what our vendors do have available for purchase right now.

Thanks for Shopping Local.
