Market News

We welcome Turner and Sons from McMinnville to the market this week! Turner is known for producing some of the best strawberries around - large, fresh, delicious and sweet! Quarts and gallons are available for order this weekend. Enjoy the best flavor spring offers!
Farmer Brown's in McMinnville is pleased to announce 3 new lettuces this week: Freckles (the name speaks for itself), a Beautiful Romaine (that will be in limited supply due to time it takes to reach market size), and a new 2 head combo (they planted a Green Crisp and Red Oakleaf together so that customers could get a combo in a single unit). Each one is uniquely different. Some of their standard varieties of lettuce are back on the market this week as well. They also have a selection of live herb plants including Basil in both Green and "Black" varieties, Arp Rosemary, Lemon Thyme and Greek Oregano (hardy in this zone). All are in the 4" pots but they do also have some gallon sizes available.
Humble Heart Farms from Limestone County Alabama has many flavors of goat cheese available this week. You can find them by clicking on the dairy category.
Bountiful Harvest from McMinnville has numerous new vegetable offerings thanks to some warm spring weather. Look for green onions, radishes, gorgeous heads of pac choi, and maybe even some arugula this week!
Fountain Springs in Morrison reminds customers that although spring is in full swing, it's time to reserve your pasture raised turkey for the fall. Turkey deposits can be purchased in the meat section of the market. If you want the best quality bird on your Thanksgiving table, reserve one soon!

Darlene Seagroves from Brown's Hollar Creations in Tracy City wants customers to know that she will be out this week and hopes to return to the market soon.
The South Cumberland Farmer's Market and the South Cumberland Food Hub are divisions of Rooted Here, located in Sewanee, Tenn., an organization of farmers, artisans, and agricultural producers who work together to facilitate and expand the sale of local products; provide education, services, and support to farmers and consumers; and lay the groundwork for a just, equitable, and sustainable local food economy.
