Good morning!

Welcome to Middle Tennessee Locally Grown online farmers’ market! As always, the market opened for ordering Sunday morning at 8 am (usually earlier), and will be open till Tuesday evening at 10 pm.

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, located in Middle Tennessee.

Please look around at various categories, as I may have missed some of the new items. Also please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”

Pick up your order in either Manchester or Tullahoma, and let us know via the drop-down menu which location you prefer for pickup. Your location may change from week to week as you prefer.

It’s National Farmers Market Week! (August 4-10) Plan to introduce a friend to our fresh local goodies on Thursday or Friday! Even if your friend didn’t place an order, there will be a few ‘extras’ available for purchase.

Farm News of the Week:

Several New Items

Carter Smith of CS3 Farms writes:

We are back from Florida, where it is hot and humid — just like home! We have another ”traditional” tea available. We are adding Oolong tea because it, like many herbs and other teas, has been demonstrated to have antioxidant properties. It also tastes quite good. We may have some sweet potato greens available, but not a whole lot. If you haven’t eaten sweet potato greens, they are a mild leaf that can be substituted for spinach or a thin lettuce leaf and eaten raw or cooked.

We have more turnips available as well as our herbal honeys, shrub (drinking vinegar) concentrates, nut butters, and other deliciousness.

(Top, L to R): Oolong Tea, Sweet Potato Greens.
(Bottom, L to R): Turnips, Habanero-Infused Honey.

Knottynuffacres has added fresh Thai and regular basil to the market.



Meet & Greet this Friday in Tullahoma

Come to “Nature’s Elite” on Friday between 4:00 and 5:00 to meet some of the local farmers who grow the fresh farm products sold on this market! A few of the farms which will be represented include:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse
Frontier Family Farms
Knottynuffacres
and others as they confirm. Come on down to Nature’s Elite and see some of the goodies we’ll have for sale!



News from Sow’s Ear Piggery:

We will be updating pork listings in 2-3 weeks once a butcher date is set. We hope our customers will be patient for our new products, as this will probably be the best pork we’ve raised and offered for sale.



Weaver Farms has put all their products on “vacation mode” for a couple of weeks. They’ve been blessed with lots of sales of late, and need a little time to restock supplies. But their great grassfed beef and pasture raised pork will be back as soon as possible!

Cindy’s Suds items are also on “vacation mode” this week, and should return next week.

I also have a couple of nice solid green hanging spider plants, a pretty Creeping Charlie basket, and just two hanging flame violets available.
