Martin's Farmstand:  U-pick strawberries Monday

We are opening for u-pick strawberries tomorrow morning (Monday June, 27, 2022) at 7 am. Picking conditions are fairly good with lots of ripe berries out there. The quality seems to be better than it was. They are ripening nicely with the warm weekend. As is normal in the late part of the season the berries are mostly small. I had a few to eat as I walked the patches that were really good. Next picking after tomorrow will be Wednesday starting at 2 pm. There is about a week of season left. Daniel

Grower’s on our Market are local, within a 35 mile radius and a few of our Growers only sell through our Stones River Locally Market, thank you for supporting our local Grower’s.

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

We look forward seeing you on the Porch this Wednesday, June 29th from 5-6:15 pm, 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 READ THIS….If you CAN NOT pick up by 6:15pm, please let us know, we can make your orders available with Quinn’s Mercantile so you can stop by and pick them up. If we are NOT notified, your order will be donated and you will be invoiced for the amount of your order. We still need to pay our Growers for their products.

Grower’s News:

Bean Man: We’ve added Bean Girl’s Gluten Free Guacamole Dip recipe to our website recipe page to help you with the hotter temperatures. If you follow on social media, we posted a picture of it along with some very good Gluten Free chips (we finally found some) – On The Border.

We have our full selection of Fresh Dry Beans, Bean Mixes, Scottish Oatmeal, Gluten Free Flours and Ready to Mix products. Although we don’t sell the guacamole dip, we do have our Black Bean Dip for you which just needs water and salsa to make about 3-1/2 cups of fresh and refreshing dip – each package contains 4 packets with each making the 3-1/2 cups so it goes a long way and is a quick treat – try the chips mentioned above to keep it totally Gluten Free. Also consider some sour cream as a side for it or thinly spread across the dip for an extra touch.

RC Farms: Along with a great assortment of produce and BEEF we now have some popular fruit available and more to come. Find Cantaloupes, Peaches & Cream Corn and Peaches this week. We’ve restocked our Beef selections.

Terry’s Treasures: I have started making beautiful hand painted vases that will let you showcase your own beautiful flowers. Several different color designs or you can request your own color.

Quarter Spring Farm: we have a plethora of plump chickens for your culinary escapades. We just finished processing our first batch of the year, so these are some fine fresh fowl. We also have our usual assortment of skin softening soaps and lotions. And we just introduced a brand new scent of lotion: coconut lime. Now you can smell like the beach, even if you’re actually stuck inland with the rest of us.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: we are back on the market this week with ‘NEW’ Non-GMO pork products, including pork tenderloin, cutlets, and chops, as well as roasts, ground pork, and mild pork sausage (no MSG).
You will notice some packaging changes with the ground products, as our butcher was unable to source the typically tube-like sleeves we are accustomed to getting. Also, this order was from a pig with a higher fat percentage due to its heritage breeding. In the past, if you have needed to add a little oil to fry our sausage or ground pork, this will not be necessary. In fact, you will be able to drain a couple of tablespoons of oil from your skillet. This rendered lard is excellent for sauteing garlic, onions, mushrooms, or cooking eggs. Studies have shown that outdoor, pasture-raised pigs have higher omega 3 and lower saturated fat than commercial pork raised in warehouses on concrete with no access to foraging. As always, Sow’s Ear Piggery pork is non-GMO fed and USDA inspected.

Flying S Farms: This week we have our Fresh Farm Chicken Eggs, Green Garlic Bulbs, Yellow Straight neck Squash, Scallop Aquash, Cucumbers, Onions and Potatoes, Sweet Peppers, Peaches & Cream Corn. Baked items NOT available this week, everything is fine but medical followup appointments take prioity this week!

Thank you and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
