Middle Tennessee Locally Grown:  A Sampling of Recent Additions


Middle Tennessee Locally Grown market

will be open for your orders till Tuesday evening at 10 pm.



News from Aussie Acres:
We appreciate all our Aussie Acres customers. I am donating a kidney to my brother, so I will not be selling milk and cheese again until early next year. Thanks for your business and prayers. I’ll still be buying from the market. Merriwether Bakes will still be my favorite weekly treat.


Also, Triple T Cattle Farms has sold out of nearly all cuts till next week. We have reduced the price on ground beef to make room for other cuts arriving soon from the processor. Thanks for the response!


With the changing of the seasons (from winter straight into summer, it seems), we have several new or returning items on the market. Since I was busy celebrating Mother’s Day yesterday, I left you to explore the market and discover these goodies for yourself. In case you missed any of them, here are a few to entice you to explore these particular sections again. If you find something that you missed earlier, feel free to place a second order. The software will easily combine multiple orders from one customer for us.

Please note: tomato and pepper plants are now available!

(Top, L to R) Focaccia from Merriwether Bakes, Asparagus from Frontier Family Farms, Shampoo Bars from Solace Farm.
(Bottom, L to R) Orange Daylily, Calibrachoa Hanging Basket, and Elderberry Plant from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse.

Weblog from a few of our Grower’s:

Singing Bee Honey: Thank you for the support of our farm! The inventory of honey is dwindling to a few small jars, but worry not, the girls are thriving and bringing in a lovely spring nectar. We will be releasing the spring harvest in the coming weeks. The wait will be worth it, I promise! We will also be releasing new products this year including bee pollen granules and wax products. You may also see some veggies pop up in our shop over the season because what goes better together than bees and gardens? We hope to bring you some interesting and different varieties than what you will see in the grocery stores, but we’ll also have crowd favorites. This week is spring turnip tops and cilantro.

Oakview Farm: This week we have fresh spinach, mustards, and green kohlrabi this week. Also, try our delicious free-range chicken and duck eggs

Sow’s Ear Piggery: Available this week, Mild Breakfast Sausage, Ground Pork, Pork Stew Meat, Pork Ribs – thick southern style and Pork Shouler 16-17.

We have our full range of Fresh Dry Beans, Bean Mixes, Scottish Oatmeal, Gluten Free Flours and Ready to Mix Products available. Need a quick, healthy meal or snack?

Pinky’s Micros: We grow all different kinds of microgreens. Ones that everyone always can find at stores and some that people never ever seen before besides in high end restaurants. I want to bring people fresh microgreens so they can enjoy the health benefits plus also feel like a chef at home.

Microgreens and sprouts are extremely dense in vital enzymes, minerals and vitamins and chlorophyll. There aren’t many foods you could eat that are fresher.

Enjoy a dazzling array of new flavors. Plants are at their absolute peak of flavor intensity at this stage of life.
