We also still have our no-pesticide salad greens mix that has a variety of lettuces, spinach, kale, baby bok choi, and baby mustard greens! Don’t forget about our Roasted Strawberry Jam that goes really well on our toasted sourdough bread!

M&S Farms: We still several great cuts of beef available at a very reasonable price.

Kumaika Coffee: We are a Certified USDA Organic Product provider. We have a small coffee roaster business. We specialize in roasting and crafting small batches of organic, high altitude single origin and fair trade coffee beans. We bring the coffee beans directly from Nicaragua and roast small batches in our home located in Lascassas TN. They will grind the beans if you ask. (SIDE NOTE: Ben and I are enjoying both light and dark roasted)

Backyard Tailz: Treat your birds arriving from their winter break with my new Cardinal, Chickadee, Woodpecker snacks. Variety of mixes. Still have a few hanging wreaths availabe.

Calico Farms: Our scones are back this week to the market – the product that started our entire business. Available in 3 & 6-packs, this weeks’ flavor is one of our most popular – orange vanilla bean, a true crowd pleaser! We place the orange zest both into the batter as well as on top of the icing & scrape out fresh Madagascar vanilla bean paste to infuse in the batter as well. Our scones are organic & dairy-free, like all of our baked goods, and our made with heritage white flour by Sunrise Flour Mill – the most digestable flour I’ve found. We use Miyokos vegan butter which is a heart-healthy blend of cashew & coconut butter. These scones turn scone haters (because most are so dry) into scone-lovers. I promise you will love these!

New this week are our dye-free sprinkle cookies, available in 6-packs. These are organic & dairy-free too, so indulge & enjoy without the nasty artificial food colorings that are in conventional rainbow sprinkles. We put the sprinkles both in the dough as well as on top, so reward your inner child with these delicious, super soft cookies today.

Valley View Farm & Garden: We have added few more birdhouses to our inventory, handmade using rough cedar. Several birdhouse with different designs.

Yentz Family Farm: We will be rotating over the next few week to be able to prepare for upcoming Growing season. See you next week!

Lavender Cottage: We are excited to be adding a few more new items. Some seasoning mixes as well as a new powder to our line up. Our items also makes great gifts. We plan to be on the porch Wednesday during pickup so you can view and purchase from our inventory.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): We have freshly made elderberry syrup and plenty of elderberry spilanthes tincture to fight the colds. We use the tincture daily to keep any viruses at bay. They come in 4oz and 2oz sizes. Kombucha Scoby, selection of several benefical teas, Mustards, Herbal Healing Salve and more Healing items and teas.

Pink’s Micros:
This is our WINTER microgren blend! Every season we create new blends to represent the time of year. OUR WINTER blend has ’YELLOW BEETS, RED PAC CHOI, IGLOO CAULIFLOWER and CURLY WATERCRESS.
What better way to start the New Year than with highly nutritional greens called Mirogreens? They pack 40 to 100% more vital nutrients than the adult verion. We grow organically with NON-GMO seeds and nutrient-dense soil. We look forward to providing the best for you in 2024.

RC Farms: We have several items restocked and frozen produce, and
delicious desserts, we’ve been working and preparing our tunnels for spring produce. Spring will be here before you know it!

Triple LLL Farm: We have our new February specials posted. We also have added Chicken Thighs and Drumsticks still on sale. We also have added more eggs available

Quarter Spring Farm: We have all of the healthy and delicious pasture raised poultry that your family craves. We are also fully stocked with equally healthy and tasty grass-fed lamb, and we have plenty of free range chicken eggs available this week on the market. As always, we have plenty of skin softening goat milk soaps, shampoo bars, and lotions. Try some today to feel the difference for yourself.

Nash Philly: Nashville Hot Chicken Parmesan? My creative twist on two great dishes. It’s everything you would expect from a chicken parm dish. Tender pan fried chicken cutlets, pounded out, and seasoned with garlic, onion, cayenne, paprika, white pepper and freshly crackled black pepper. Breaded and pan fried to golden brown and delicious. And covered with homemade marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. Served with spaghetti noodles. For those of you not keen to spicy things we are also doing a regular chicken Parmesan as well.

Beef Wellington a true American classic. Seared 6 oz sirloin steaks that are wrapped in prosciutto exclusively being sold from the Hammery here in Murfreesboro. And a sautéed mushroom and onions mixture ( mushroom duxelle) wrapped in puff pastry. As you bake this dish watch it come to life with its flakey buttery crust. Surely to wow yourself, significant other or guests.

Collard greens done differently but well. Try these creamed collard greens. It’s like a hardy spinach and artichoke dip but without the need of having chips, but a good piece of bread goes very well with this side.

Flying S Farms: We have a few new Happy Chickens added to our flock, don’t be surprised is you see a different colored egg in your carton! We still have our Fresh Farm Eggs Special: Bundle of 3 dozen discounted price or by the dozen. Sour Dough Breads, along with delicious Brownies, Biscuits, Friendship Breads (please order Friendship Breads by 3pm on Monday) still have few Jams available, we will Jamming soon updating our inventory.

We will be looking forward seeing you “On the Porch or At the Curb" of Quinn’s Mercantile WEDNESDAY, February 28th from 4:30 – 5:30 pm, please note time change, please contact the Manager if you are unable to pick up your order or are running late, please phone, email or text the Manager (615.542.1078) so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.

This market was added to the LocallyGrown.net system on Saturday February 24, 2024 11:56 AM. It should be open for business soon!

Martin's Farmstand:  No Credit Card Surcharge


The farmstand is open this afternoon (Saturday Feb, 24.2024) as normal with a nice selection of winter storage crops and bulk foods. We have stopped charging a surcharge for credit card sales in response to Hochul’s new law that prohibits us from passing the cost of credit card fees on to the customer unless we put both the credit and cash price on item and shelf signage (our equipment such as the label printing scales for the bulk food is not able to do this). Another recommended option is to just charge the higher credit card price to all customers. This option does not suit me. In 2023 about 32 % of our customers paid with cards and 68% paid with cash or check. The rate of credit card use was quite a lot higher before we started surcharging. Starting today we will be giving a 3% cash/ check discount at check out instead. For now the prices throughout the market are still the old pricing however as we get to it and new product comes in we will be moving our posted prices up enough to cover this cost. Daniel
