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,
Michael & Linda

Farm News of the Week

From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:

You missed out on the Christmas wreaths and kissing balls? Maybe you procrastinated, but you haven’t missed out. I have received more materials, so will be able to make a few more. If you’d like to order one, I will add your name to the waiting list. You will not be charged for these at this time, but may pay me directly upon pickup at the December 20 market.

Do you have gardeners on your gift list? We have a small new crop of Wandering Jew hanging baskets, full and beautiful in time for Christmas giving. We still have a few pink Christmas cacti left, and just a couple of African violets. If you want one of these, place your order now, and tell me whether to deliver it this Tuesday or reserve it for your Christmas order. Remember: the best gift for a gardener is a gift certificate from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse, available in any amount. It will be redeemable for a full year, so your recipient can choose among houseplants, vegetable transplants, blooming shrubs, hanging baskets, perennial and herb plants, or Christmas decorations, depending on the season in which the certificate is redeemed.

Molly from Kountry Vittles writes:

I hope Everyone had a Blessed and Wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. I have added a new pie to the market, a Caramel Apple Crumble pie made of course with fresh apples and a buttery crumble topping – pure deliciousness when it’s baking and leaving a wonderful apple smell throughout my little kitchen. With the holidays coming and everyone’s busy schedule, let me give you a break and do some baking for you.

(L to R) Apple Caramel Crumble Pie and Stay-Soft Sugar Cookies, the latter decorated for Christmas.




Wayne Diller‘s items are still in vacation mode this week, but he’s planning to return to market shortly.

Knottynuffacres will be on vacation mode for several weeks while Deb deals with medical issues. We will miss everyone.

I have received more materials, so will be able to make a few more Christmas wreaths and kissing balls. If you’d like to order one, I will add your name to the waiting list. You will not be charged for these till I deliver, which is estimated for December 20 market.

This holiday season, brighten your loved ones’ homes with plants that they can enjoy all year round! Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has a wonderful selection of indoor plants, including winter-flowering violets, pretty-leaved Rex begonias, wandering jew hanging baskets, and a few pink Christmas cacti. If you want one of these, place your order now, and tell me whether to deliver it on Tuesday or reserve it for your Christmas order.
