Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 farm week of Aug 23 2015


As of Aug 23rd, we can offer 48 items including the following crops: zucchini, plum tomatoes, cilantro, basil, napa and early white cabbage, arugula (rocket), kale, three varieties of chard, red cabbage, collards, and beetgreens, peppers, eggplant, spaghetti squash.

Another week upon us and soon market day. We dug potatoes and harvested onions, pruned the raspberry canes and seeded some flats for fall and winter crops.

The spaghetti squash is going to be bountiful this year, already enough ripe fruits to offer for sale. This is the item you can use to substitute for durum wheat pasta, if you are trying to reduce your wheat and high glycemic index foods.

Eggs are plentiful so please consider introducing a neighbour to pastured organic eggs from here.

If you want quiches, cabbage rolls, or sauerkraut, pls place order early in the week.

Healthy eating

We thought we’d let you know about some specials just added to the market page!

Twin Forks Farm is offering 25% off their granola this week – either the Cranberry Almond, or Maple Raisin, or Orange, Raisin&Walnut are available at this reduced price, for Fresh harvest Customers only!

Also, Bear Creek Farm has Fresh – not frozen – thick cut pork chops available this week! You can eat them right away, or freeze them yourself!

There is still a great selection of veggies on the Market page – winter squashes of all kinds, different cooking greens to try, peppers, green beans and okra!

You have until Tuesday evening to place your order.
We appreciate your support, and will see you on Wednesday!

John and Tallahassee

The Cumming Harvest:  The Cumming Harvest - This Week


Market News

THANK YOU! We would like to thank Nick Tanner of Cherry Street Brewery for their generous donation to the market. Back in March they hosted us at their Last Tuesday Beer Bash event and raised money from that nights sales. We really appreciate the support from Rick Tanner’s and Cherry Street Brewery!

UPDATE CONTACT With all the hustle and bustle of back-to-school and new routines, it’s easy to forget things like picking up your TCH order. Remember that we can’t keep your items past 12pm, and we’ll try contacting you any way we know how to make sure you get what you ordered. Now’s a great time to check the phone number on your account to make sure it’s a number I can reach you at 11:45am on a Saturday. I start calling everyone who hasn’t picked up yet then, and will keep trying to reach you until 12pm, when we have to pack it all up. I hate seeing people’s food go somewhere else, and having a good phone number on your account is the best way to keep that from happening.

DELIVERY – We are postponing Vickery pick up and delivery in September so that Pascale can take some much needed time off to celebrate her and her husbands birthday’s and anniversary. If you see her this week, you can pass on good wishes and we’ll resume October 3rd.

Martin's Farmstand:  watermelons are ripe!


There is so much food coming from the gardens today- Will the eaters be able to eat most of it?

The sweet corn is back in abundance. The next 5 patches of sweet corn look like they are going to ripen in perfect timing so I think there should be an unbroken supply of corn for the next 2-3 weeks and may be longer. We are only half done picking todays tomatoes and there is 20 crates already. We will have canners for sale as soon as we get them sorted.

Now the high light! Our homegrown yellow watermelons are ready. There is also lots of cantalope and a few red watermelon. They are so sweet with a rich flavor. Did you know that in breeding for the seedless traits that you find in many of the store watermelons that they also lost a lot of the flavor. We use low tech organic type methods to grow our melons, I believe that this along with the cooler weather of the north also is a large factor in top flavor. Daniel

Greeneville Farmers Market, Inc.:  Watermelon, Cantaloupe and More


Our online market doesn’t have everything. But you can shop our physical market on Saturday August 27th, and every Saturday till the end of October and get watermelon, cantaloupe, potatoes, corn and more. We are also open on Wednesdays till Sept. 2nd, from 3 to 6 pm.

We are under the AJ Pavilion for a couple of weeks. So if you can’t find what you want here then come to the market to see us in person.

Thank you,
The Vendors
