NO MARKET TODAY ! !


MARKET IS CANCELLED TODAY. This is the first time we have ever had to call market because of weather, but since there is a State of Emergency for middle and east Tennessee and the Sewanee PD is advising against any road travel if not an emergency we feel it is prudent to keep as many people of the roads as possible.

See you next week!

Thanks!
Kir and Linda

The Weather For Market This Week


We are closely monitoring the weather for Tuesday. There’s a lot that can happen between now and then, so keep watching your inbox. If we have any changes to the market, we will send out another Blog message.

Thanks!
