The Wednesday Market: The Market is Open
The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s offerings. Here is the link:
Even though it’s a bit of a nuisance getting in and out of my car during the rain, I am happy that it’s pouring down. Yesterday was busy with transplanting tomatoes and peppers into the garden spot at our house. And the houseplants that have already been moved outdoors were treated with new soil. So the rain is nourishing them all this afternoon.
How are you spending this rainy day? Believe it or not, we have a soccer game scheduled and are waiting on word whether it will be played. Soccer players are hearty folks. Generally if the fields aren’t standing in water, and there is no lightning and thunder, soccer games go on. I guess I’ll wear my rubber boots!
We are supposed to have rainy weather through Wednesday, so bring your umbrellas when you come to get your orders. We’ll see you then.
Foothills Market: The Market is Open - April 22
Foothills Market is open for another week! All our vendors participated in the Spring Greening Festival yesterday, which was a good celebration of community and of early spring.
Because of the festival, inventory on the market is a little low on vegetables, but check back through the ordering window for additions as they’re available. And we still have plenty of meats available!
Shop from today until noon on Wednesday, click the “Place your order” button, and we’ll have your order ready for pickup Thursday between 4-6 p.m.
Eat something fresh this week!

Manchester Locally Grown: Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!
Manchester Locally Grown market
We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.
The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.
Welcome to this week’s offerings from your online farmers’ market. Everything you see on our website is the “cream of the crop” from local farmers, the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! When you place an order with our farms, you know you are supporting your friends and neighbors, most located within 30 miles of Manchester, Tennessee.
The market will remain open for your orders till Tuesday at 10 pm.
Please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”

Matt Gulick from Tonic Farm writes:
We’re currently running a larder sale to make room for the new season of chicken. Since all of our production is based on pasture, our growing season is limited to the warm months so we always try to make sure to produce more than enough. The year before last we sold out early before the new season, and last year it seems we over-produced so now we’re passing the savings on to our customers in order to make room!! We’re selling through the last of last year’s stock, 20% off on whole birds and 30% off on both boneless skinless breast and tenders! Offer available while supplies last!
Whole broiler, Boneless/skinless breast.
Lois Casey from Casey Family Farm writes:
We have made some adjustments with our cows and plan to list milk this week.
In news from Solace Farm, Amy Rae writes:
This week, Solace Farm will be offering regular and tinted lip balms, in both the classic balm recipe and my 50% grassfed tallow recipe. We have also listed our clay-based deodorants in a new, eco-friendly cardboard tube, rather than plastic ones (although the plastic tubes will be available till until they’re used up).
We’re also offering a new granola, perfect for spring – it’s a meringue granola, with almost no added fat, very little sugar, and extra protein from the egg whites. There are also some new soaps listed with new fragrances – Goat Milk, Classic Lard, Olive & Shea Vegan, and the Goat Milk Shampoo.
(L to R, top to bottom): Tallow Lip Balm, Deodorant, Classic Lip Balm, Classic Lard Soap in several scents, Olive & Shea Vegan Soap in several scents, goat milk shampoo bar.
Sherri Raines of Frontier Family Farm has added some more new micro-greens: cabbage & kale.
