Stones River Market:  Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesday!


Welcome to the October 3-4 Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market!

New Fall and Winter Hours:
As the days get shorter we are adjusting our pickup times on the porch to 5-6:15. Please adjust your schedules accordingly!

Please share our market web address with your health-conscious friends, via text, email, or social media (and/or forward this message). https://stonesriver.locallygrown.net The more healthy members we have, the more variety of produce and product we can provide!

The Market opens at 8:00 am on Sunday morning and closes at 10:00 pm Monday evening. Order early before we run out of that one item you “must have!” You can always come back to order more (and some growers may identify added produce while the market is open).

We look forward to seeing you on the Porch this Wednesday from 5-6:15, with deliveries following. Know that our growers have the hour prior to get their products organized so things might be a bit hectic (and crowded) if you come early.

Please comment to the Manager when you checkout if you require curb service, and include your anticipated time of arrival so we can have your order ready and watch for your arrival.

No Deliveries this week, our drivers are on Fall break.

FROM THE MARKET….Calling ALL CRAFTERS: The Market is looking for Crafters that would be interesting in selling items through the upcoming Holiday Season on the Market.  These items would be made by you – no resellers. This is a great opportunity to showcase items that you make or build. Example: Jewelry – necklaces, bracelets, earrings or Pottery or Rugs or Scarves or Woodwork or Metal Work etc.  Please contact us through the market email – or leave a voice message for the Manager and we will get back in contact with you. 

News from Our Growers:

The Bean Man: We have our beans and bean mixes available. All of our products are fresh, non-gmo and tested gluten free with no glyphosates used in growth or harvest.  We always sell our products in the same season they were harvested. The Flours are Pinto, Red, Black and White made from our Fresh Beans as well as Tapioca and Brown Rice Flour which we don’t grow grow but do process and test per our procedures. I did ask before posting the last two at the market last Wednesday. We are looking to roll out Almond Flour later in October once we get our separate milling and processing area complete as well as our isolation procedures as it is an allergen and cannot be around our other products. 

Mama D’s Bakery: Hi everyone! We have our new items,  Hummingbird Cake (with a gluten/dairy free option too), Pumkin spice bagels, cake rolls, muffins, and Ginger Cookies available again this week.  We will also have everything else available! We have a Sourdough Sandwich Loaf, Oatmeal Cookies,  Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Strawberry Swirl Bread,  Raspberry Swirl Bread, and Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread, Blueberry Muffins, Crusty French Bread, Organic White Wheat Bread, Mocha Muffins, Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread(with the option of nuts or not), Bagels(plain, cinnamon-raisin, blueberry, and everything), Donuts(cake and yeast), Cream Cheese Danishes, Pies(chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), Cookies, Granola and Protein Bars, Yeast Breads, Sourdough Breads, and Fruit Scones. Thanks so much to everybody for your business!!

Flying S Farms:  Our produce this week includes: Bok Choy and Napa Cabbage, Acorn Squash, Butternut Squash, Carnival, Delicata, Spaghetti and Long Island Cheese Pumpkin (delicious), Clemson Okra, Green Sweet Peppers and Mountain Fresh Tomatoes.

Thank you everyone for your assistances helping with the market,  prayers, best wishes, cards, delicious meals during my absence. I believe the worst is over, still few more things that need to be done.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We still have lots of green and growing things! Trouble is, not too many of them are in bloom this time of year, and I feel rather badly about the lack of color. However, with the cooler fall-ish weather (which hopefully may stay around), it is a really good time to plant perennials. September planting gives perennials and shrubs an opportunity to establish a good strong route system before the ground takes on a winter chill. This in turn will allow them to initiate healthy top growth in early spring, followed by plentiful blooms. This week I’ve added several spring bloomers to the market (astilbes and columbines for shade, coreopsis and creeping phlox for sun), joining a few late bloomers with flowers now (begonias, gauras, sedum, rudbeckia, turtlehead). Don’t forget our fresh-cut herbs, or if you prefer to grow your own, our herb plants. Some of the latter are a bit overgrown, but that just gives you more fresh herbs to preserve for winter use.

GROWER & MARKET NOTES

WELCOME NEW VENDORS!

We are pleased to announce the addition of JBW Farms and TranQuil Pastures Farm to our Market family. Please check them out on our Grower Page.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Speaking of Growers – if you check the Market Page and the Grower Page you’re sure to notice that not all our growers have products listed. This is because some only offer seasonal items or have suspended sales because of inventory, vacation or any number of reasons. In the case of
Restoration Gardens they are in the process of moving. We will miss them! Their fairy tale eggplant was the BEST! Eagle Grove Services will start listing in a few weeks as their satsumas ripen.

Whatever the case we encourage our customers and vendors to get to know each other and interact! Next Saturday’s Fall Festival is a great opportunity to do that as several of our vendors will be on site next to the Butterfly House. They are hoping you’ll stop to visit.

Locally Grown STT:  The Online Farmers Market is open again!!


Good Morning!

Welcome back to the St Thomas Online Farmers Market!

Our mission is to directly connect you with local produce available in your community.

We want to you to have access to fresh, living foods this season by connecting you with local producers and value added producers.

We want all Virgin Islands residents to be Food Secure! Especially during these times. And connecting you with local produce is how we do it.

Some reminders and new information. This season, pick up is on THURSDAYs and we are extending pick up time to 6PM. So pick up time is now 3:30p-6pm to better accommodate those who get off of work around 5p.

Membership renewals! It’s about that time for many. So when you place your next order, you may see a membership renewal fee on there.

What’s in season? Remember with being a specific niche market of locally grown produce, you will see a lot more seasonality than a grocery store. So remember to try new things, and check back often as growers update their listings every week. If you need some help figuring out how to get into the swing of a localvore, try buying the Farmers Market Mystery Box where our market coordinator puts together an order for you with recipe ideas.

New form of payment accepted! We can now receive WIC coupons until end of November! The WOC program is doing a new offering tis season where in addition to recipients getting their vouchers, this fall season they are getting Local Produce Coupons that can be used at our farmers market. I’m addition to this, we now accept VENMO to @QueSeraFarms.

Thank you for shopping local! We love good food and know you will too.
