Connie's Cornucopia:  Wheatgrass is here


You can get cut Wheatgrass in 2oz. Or Plant.
Check it out.

Champaign, OH:  Starfish and Coffee


“Starfish and coffee
Maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine
And a side order of ham”
(Prince)

Happy Sunday, lovely local market customers!!

Just a reminder to get those weekly orders in!! Sundays can get a bit crazy as they fade into a Monday, so why not make your market list, now?

I’m sitting with coffee, doing my own ordering, and listening to a few playlists I’ve put together. For some reason, I’ve really been into melding old Prince with Donovan tracks…anyway, this song popped on, and the lyrics caught my attention for the market…

For one…we offer maple syrup, jam, I’m sure there are some butterscotch something or others, and ham…

My main thought, though, is the jam…and, to let you know that Champaign Berry Farms just added SEEDLESS Blackberry Jam to the market!!!

Get excited, mix your own playlists, and dance it all out while getting those orders in…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Growers News:

BE SURE TO READ THE NEW ITEMS ON THE MARKET AND ITEMS THAT ARE TAGGED AS A REMINDER. YOU CAN ALSO DO A SEARCH FOR SOMETHING YOU MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR.

WELCOME A NEW GROWER TO THE MARKET: 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. (SIDE NOTE: Ben and I are enjoying both light and dark roasted)

Calico Farms: Calling all gluten-free customers!!! New this week we have gluten-free peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies available in 6-packs for your Valentine or yourself! They are also organic & dairy free, like all our other baked goods. These cookies are incredibly rich, chocolatey & have the perfect amount of delicious peanut butter & rolled oats. We also have our maple sea salt cookies & snickerdoodles returning this week too.

Looking for a non-food item to treat yourself or your Valentine with? Try our relaxing, soothing lavender vanilla shower steamers. Toss them in the shower & enjoy the aromatherapy you deserve. Sold in a 2-packs.

Last, but not least, our 10-oz bags of nuts are the perfect heart-healthy treat any day of the week – for snacking, on salads, or mixed in to oatmeal or yogurt. Available in 4 scrumptious flavors!

DB Collectables: Need a Valentine’s Day gift for a special someone? These cute mug sets include a mug, a mug rug, Mexican Gourmet Cocoa, and a Valentine’s Day balloon. Perfect as a little gift to brighten someone’s day!

Triple LLL Farm: We have my new February specials posted.
I would like to add that I have chicken thighs and drumsticks still on sale. I also have added more eggs available now

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.

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.

Backyard Tailz: find our products in Gardens and Yards!
New item this week: Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Heart Bird Seed Ornaments! Show the bird lover in your life a little love this year by making their backyard the favorite in the neighborhood. Solid sunflower chips and cayenne pepper means no mess and (hopefully) no squirrels. Combine them with a Giant Cupcake Seed Cylinder for the ultimate gift and backyard bird feast.

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. With Valentines just aroud the corner don’t forget to order some freeze dried sweets for your sweetheart!

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Welcome to the post subarctic blast. I am writing this email before our hilly sheet of ice road has melted having faith the much warmer temps will melt the shady spots by Wednesday. 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.

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 and just finished planting potato this past week. Spring will be here before you know it!

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, Friendship Breads, we have added a new Friendship Bread ‘Butterscotch’ to our inventory! Along with delicious Brownies, Biscuits and Jams to name of few. Just a few jars of Cowboy Candy available.

Martin's Farmstand:  Weblog Entry


The farmstand is open today from noon till 5 pm. Our winter schedule has us opening every Saturday afternoon. In the spring once the asparagus harvest starts summer hours will resume. See below for a partial list of what is available now. In addition to the winter storage crops the bulk food room is stocked with dried herbs and spices, baking supplies etc. This warm weather makes the sap run in the sugar bush. Yesterday I was part of the crew walking the lines and repairing leaks. It was a perfct day to be out in the woods. In just a few more weeks it is time to seed parsley and onions. I like to plant seeds and watch them grow. Daniel
