This Week's Market is Open!


I feel like spring has really arrived, even though the calendar says I’m rushing it a little. That’s what two days in a row in the greenhouse does to me, I guess! My son helped me pot up some new hanging baskets and lavender plants. What a good feeling!

This week, please welcome to the market Onderka Family Farm, currently offering fudge, dinner rolls & breads, eggs, and marmalade.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse is offering daffodil bouquets for one last week.

Please check our market offerings and place your order by noon on Wednesday for delivery Thursday afternoon to Square Books Round Cookies, 113 East Main Street, Manchester. Thanks for your orders last week!

Blessings,
Linda

Manchester Locally Grown is open for orders


Dear market customers,

Please welcome Natasha and Grace Brooks to our list of growers. Natasha’s Triple B Farm in Manchester makes tea, raw granola, has a small selection of medicinal plants and has various herbs fresh and dried, all grown on our farm. Her daughters Grace and Ruth are competitive gymnasts, who travel in and out of state during their meet season. They have established Brooks Girls Cookie Creations, making a variety of cookies specializing in gluten free and other common allergies. The girls use the money from cookie sales to help pay for their gymnastics fees.

This week we have a good selection of baked goods, herbs & teas, local honey, perennial plants and houseplants, vegetables, soaps & lotions. In addition to baby moccasins from Solace Farm, this week we also offer elvish cloaks from the Brooks Girls. This will probably be the last week for Daffodil Bouquets from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse.

Browse the market and place your order by Wednesday at noon for delivery at Square Books Round Cookies, 113 East Main Street, Manchester, on Thursday afternoon.

Thanks for your order!
Linda

Manchester Locally Grown market is open!


Dear Market Members:

Spring is ever-so-softly slipping our way. I can feel it in the air. Signs of the very early part of spring are more and more common. The robins have returned in force to Coffee County, the daffodils are blooming, and the sunshine (when we see it) is warmer each day.

There are lots of eggs on the market this week, including duck eggs; as well as soaps and lotions. Solace Farm has added adorable handmade baby moccasins. Hansen’s Milk & Honey Farm has lots of local honey (so good for allergies). Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has daffodil bouquets again this week, and probably next as well. Grundy Greens’ lettuces and Frontier Family Farms’ spinach are delicious this time of year. And Wayne Diller’s popcorn will make a great healthy dessert. There are several perennials and a few houseplants available from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse.

Come browse through the market and choose a few things for your family this week. Click here to begin shopping.
