Market Blog


Earlier this evening there appears to have been a problem with the blog that is sent out when the market opens. We’re not quite sure what happened, but were able to re-send it a few minutes ago.

Sorry about the confusion!

The azaleas are at their peak this week. Be sure to get yours. These are beautiful, strong bushes covered with flowers: pure white, deep pink/red, medium pink with darker throat, salmon, or white with a pink stripe. Get yours while they are still in bloom!

Garlic Leaf Card Sets: Handmade paper from my own garlic leaves. Set is 5 folded cards each with a matching envelope. These are great for invitations, thank-yous, gift notes, or a gift in themselves. Bonus – one free card for every empty garlic braid returned.

The Josh Slotnick Thursday afternoon talk was quite a success! (Josh is a lecturer in Environmental Studies at the University of Montana and co-founder of the nonprofit Garden City Harvest and the PEAS Farm, a partnership between the UM Environmental Studies and Garden City Harvest.)

According to Clesi Bennett, CFM Volunteer, approximately 50 people attended and enjoyed the lecture as well as the goodies provided by CFM artisans! Thanks to all those who attended to learn more about raised-bed gardening.

TN Organics Offers Events


On Wednesday, April 9, 2014 9:23 PM, John Patrick <johnepatrick@gmail.com> wrote:
Hello all,

In celebration of TOGA’s tenth-year celebration, there will be 10 monthly events from March to October. The events will range from one-day workshops to farm tours, to celebrating all the Farmer’s Markets in Nashville.

March’s mushroom workshop was a great success! This month’s event will be a one-day workshop called Backyard Poultry INTENSIVE, which is geared toward small sustainable farmers and backyard enthusiasts. The workshop will be at the new Old School Farm in the Bells Bend community of Farms on April 26. Everybody may go hands-on with a chicken at this workshop. The Sustainable Poultry Network – an exciting new concept in breeding, growing, and selling heritage poultry – will be presenting this event.

You can register at: https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?llr=djzrg9lab&oeidk=a07e945kbks0f7d6b2e. All funds will be going to TOGA and lunch – with chicken sandwiches made from local, organic heritage birds – is included and will be provided by Slocos.

The discounted early registration deadline is April 20. We’d love to see you there!

Please periodically check the TOGA website for all the upcoming events at: http://www.tnorganics.org/.

Food Grade Water Barrels and Containers Available - Again!


The Cumberland Farmers Market and Tracy City Farmers Market managers are pleased to report that 11 55-gallon food grade barrels were delivered on Friday afternoon. Also, 5 of the 6-gallon food grade containers were also delivered. The 275-gallon totes were delayed until the end of April/beginning of May.

Because we will have to go pick up the 275-gallon totes, it is an opportunity for anyone who wants the 55-gallon barrels to order (by Tuesday, April 22nd), as we will be able to pick up that size again.

We do have extra 6-gallon containers, and Darlene Seagroves will be outside at the CFM this Tuesday (April 1st). They are $10 each and are very handy to have around the garden and house. The plus is that they are food grade, so you don’t have to worry about any nasty chemicals in them.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to take any more orders right now for the 275-gallon totes; our supplier says he will have a hard time fulfilling the orders we already have.

E-mail or call to order the barrels and containers, or stop at the CFM on Tuesday and get on the list. The deposit is $10 for the 55-gallon barrels.
