Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm



Manchester Locally Grown market





Our pickup location is across the street from the Manchester City Schools administration building, at

216 East Fort Street, Manchester, TN

If you don’t see a map, click on the address link.




Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online for this week. Market ordering will close tonight (Tuesday) at 10 pm. Please don’t forget to order! But if you do forget, give me (Linda) a call Wednesday morning. I will most likely be able to get hold of the farmers and place a late order for you.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page and like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or sometimes post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,

Good morning!



Welcome to this week’s offerings from your online farmers’ market. Everything you see on our website is the “cream of the crop” from local farmers, the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! When you place an order with our farms, you know you are supporting your friends and neighbors, most located within 30 miles of Manchester, Tennessee.

Please look around at various categories, since there may be some new things added to the market after I send out this message. Also please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”


Farm News of the Week

Our growers are currently offering a very large selection of proteins — all different cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken! It’s the perfect time to fill up your freezer with locally-raised meat for all those winter soups, stews and all of the other warm recipes you’ve been wanting to make.

(L to R, top) Grassfed Scottish Highland ground beef value pack from Solace Farm, RIbeye Steak from Triple T Cattle Farms, and Chicken Feet from Wayne Diller.
(L to R, bottom) Pork Chops from Sow’s Ear Piggery, Lamb Rack Of RIbs from Solace Farm, and Pork Spare Ribs from Weaver Farms

Andra Martens of Sow’s Ear Piggery hopes to return to market next week with some new cuts of pork.

Deb Wittig of Knottynuffacres will be off the market for a few more weeks.

Linda Reed of Dogwood Valley Greenhouse writes:
Christmas has come and gone, and now the “winter doldrums” set in. How about some pretty houseplants to help cheer you up? Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has African violets just coming into bloom, as well as some nice foliage hanging baskets.

It’s almost time to get a jump on spring by starting garden plants inside! But you don’t have a good place to do that? Dogwood Valley Greenhouse can grow them for you! This year we want to grow what you want in your garden. Let us know what you’d like us to grow for you. We will purchase and plant the seeds, and you can buy what you need at planting time. Some possibilities are: tomatoes, peppers, and other vegetables, perennial and herb plants, bedding plants, and hanging baskets. Message us on the market to let us know what you’re interested in, and we’ll contact you with details.

Important Ordering and Pickup Information

Ordering will be open until TUESDAY at 10 pm, and your order will be available for pickup on THURSDAY between 4:00 and 5:30 at the pavilion across from Manchester City Schools administration building, 215 East Fort Street, Manchester.

We can also deliver your order to your home (or other location) on FRIDAY afternoon for a small fee, if it’s more convenient for you. If you prefer to utilize this service, please place an order for it, same as other products, selecting your delivery area. Don’t forget to give us your location address in the comments section of the order. Also please text Linda at (931) 273-9708 for specific arrangements.

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible. Please encourage our local farmers by helping to spread the word about our wonderful market to everyone you know. We offer a great variety of local farm products, and our items will be in your hands in time to plan for the weekend. Wonderful local products are available for ordering from the comfort of your own computer.

Farm News of the Week

Hope Harrison of Hope for Health is still on ‘vacation.’ From her Facebook page:

Psalm 127:3-5
3 Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.

We are so happy and proud to introduce Jesse Harrison, born on January 10, 2019 at 5:54 am weighing 9 lbs 13 oz. and measuring 22". Children are truly a blessing from the Lord! Hallelujah!

(Middle name will be announced later)

Congratulations to Nathan and Hope Harrison and family!



From Andra Martens of Sow’s Ear Piggery:
Sow’s Ear Piggery will be in vacation mode this market week due to personal schedule. During this coming week we will be taking two pigs for processing and look forward to offering new pork cuts very soon. Please be on the lookout in the coming weeks.

Deb Wittig of Knottynuffacres is home and recuperating from shoulder surgery. She will be off the market for a few more weeks while she heals, and snuggles her furry friends.

Farm News of the Week

… and welcome back to Manchester Locally Grown online farmers’ market! We have some great offerings for you this week!

Frontier Family Farm still has some Pecans available. These aren’t exactly new products, but this is the first time they’ve been announced to you.






Molly from Kountry Vitties writes:

Good morning and welcome back to the Market, I pray you had a safe and wonderful Christmas. I have been busy getting ready for a New Year and relaxing a bit in between. Now it’s time to get baking. With the cold weather I like to enjoy fresh baked breads they go so well with soups, stews and pasta’s perfect for the colder weather. Then of course that means homemade cinnamon rolls with raisin and glaze and Cinnamon sticky buns with pecans for breakfast, the aroma in my little kitchen are so warm and appealing. What are some of your wintery favorites?

Let’s give Molly some good ideas for new products for our market! Just drop her a note directly or send one to the managers with your suggestions.

(L to R) Cinnamon Rolls, Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake.
Note: Also Cinnamon Sticky Buns (no photo)


Solace Farm has added several cuts of Grassfed Scottish Highland beef, but as of this writing there are no photos to share with you. Please check for Ribeye 4 packs and Flank Steaks.


Please watch for new offerings of House Plants from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse over the next few weeks, to brighten our homes this winter.
