Market News

We will be the Featured Farmer this week and will have extra pies and black walnuts to sample and order for the holidays. We are selling fresh pumpkin pies again this year as a fundraiser for the Grundy County/Tracy City farmers’ market. These fresh pies are made from local free-range eggs and locally grown pumpkins.

We also have green onions.
Eric and Suzanne Earle (Fountain Springs Farm) will be outside the market at 3:45 on Tuesday in a tan Saturn Outlook vehicle. They will have the turkeys for those who placed their deposit with the balance due payable to Fountain Springs Farm or Eric or Suzanne Earle.

They also have some larger chickens available on the market if you would like any chicken.

Just remember to get your deposit in EARLY next year to reserve a turkey for Thanksgiving.

Thank You

The Cumberland Farmers’ Market would like to announce its fall coffee break happening on Dec. 2, 2014, from 2-3 p.m. (before market) at the Sewanee Community Center.

This Coffee Break will target holiday gift-giving to get our customers (and new customers from the Sewanee community) to come see the market and order our wonderful products online. Artisans and farmers will be displaying their wares to show everyone what will be available on the market. Customers will also be able to buy products at this time—no waiting to order!

Everyone is welcome to enjoy the free parking, free entrance, and free samples! As the weather gets colder, doesn’t it sound wonderful to have hot coffee or tea and holiday treats to sample before you buy!!

Please come and meet all the farmers you haven’t met and spend some time visiting with us.

We will be making more announcements as vendors sign up, so please put us on your calendar for this important date. We hope to see you all.
Before you order, be sure you see the little shopping cart. If you do not, log out and log in again. If this fails, turn off your computer completely and start again. This includes ordering from smart phones.

If you want to leave a comment for a grower, be sure to put it in the “Leave comment for grower” area in RED beneath the item you’re ordering. Placing comments in the market manager section will not be seen by the growers.
We have had several requests for information on biointensive gardening/farming. If you are interested in a very informal discussion group on this subject, please let us know so we can add you to the list, either on the teacher or student side. Everyone is welcome, including those not currently customers or growers on the market.
If you would like to have your market order delivered, have you contacted Rachel Lynch, the new Sewanee delivery driver? E-mail: or phone 931-598-0774.

Don’t forget: Rachel is NOT affiliated with the CFM and, therefore, is not authorized to accept payments of any kind on behalf of the CFM. Payment of all CFM orders MUST be made in advance of Tuesday’s delivery. Checks must be mailed in time to be posted to customer accounts before closing of market ordering on Monday. To ensure your account always has a positive balance, the CFM prefers payments in increments of at least $100.00. Mail checks made out to CFM to Kir Strobel, 744 Timberwood Trace, Monteagle, TN 37356.

Should at-home delivery not work for you, your second option is to leave your order at the Center to be picked up by you or a designée by 6 p.m. Wednesday. As with any left-behind order, there will be a $3.00 fee unless that order has been prepaid in full in advance. Don’t forget there is no freezer at the Center for the forseeable future, so it is imperative your items be picked up in a timely manner.
PANETTONE COMING FOR THE HOLIDAYS! Be looking for it from Dogwood Farm.
Don’t forget…
If you do not receive an order confirmation within 5 minutes, your order has NOT been placed in the system. E-MAIL OR CALL US to get the problem solved so you will not be disappointed on market day.

Please remember the market closes at 10 a.m. on Monday; therefore, your order must be completed and placed, and you should be signed out of the software.
If you have any questions, please call (931.592.3399, no voice mail) or e-mail ( us.

Farm to Table Recipes

Yield: Serves 4.
We’re using butternut squash for this dish, but you could easily use kabocha squash instead, or any firm, easy-to-peel, winter squash. You can either boil or roast the squash, directions are given for both methods.
Save Recipe
1 butternut squash, about 2 pounds, peeled, seeds removed, flesh cut into 1-inch cubes (see how to cut and peel a butternut squash)
3 bay leaves (if boiling the squash)
1 heaping cup of walnuts (can substitute pecans or pine nuts)
2-3 Tbsp butter
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Black pepper to taste
1a If roasting Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat the cubed squash with a little vegetable oil and spread out onto a baking tray. Sprinkle with salt and roast until the cubes begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven.
1b If boiling Put 4 cups of water into a medium-sized pot and add the bay leaves. Bring to a simmer. Add the squash to the pot. Boil, covered for 10 minutes. Drain.
2 Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and toast the walnuts. Stir frequently or they will burn. Once they they start to brown, and you can smell the aroma of toasted walnuts, remove from heat.
3 Melt the butter in the pan with the walnuts over medium-high heat. Toss the walnuts to coat with butter, then add the squash. Toss them to coat with butter.
4 Add the grated ginger, vanilla extract, black pepper, a little salt and dried thyme and toss once more. Turn off the heat and squeeze some lemon juice over everything. Taste for salt and lemon and add more to taste. If you want this to be a bit more luxurious, mix in another tablespoon of butter or two before serving.

Siloam Springs, AR:  Availability of Extra Produce

Just a note to let our online market shoppers know that Opossum Hollow Produce will not have any extra produce available at tomorrow’s pick up. Nine degree temps slow things down pretty fast and we need a few more warm days to help the greens recover from that cold spell.

Thank you for continuing to support the market.
