Order Now for Jan 2 pick up


Happy New Year -
The ground may be frozen but the JB Online Market still has plenty to offer you. Delicious meats, fresh eggs, home baked breads, jams, cheese – some hardy produce and an array of other
fresh and locally grown and made products.
Cruise the aisles from the comfort of your home, and then come for pick up at the JB Visitor Center between 5:30 and 6 on Wednesday, Jan 2.

Any problems with pick up call Charles at 423-895-4140.

As always, check your order with the invoice before paying, we want to be sure you get what you ordered, and adjustments are easier to make before the point of sale.

See you Wednesday…

Online Market open for Dec19 pick-up


Hello JB Farmers Market Customers-
Lots of great products this week for your holiday festivities.
Reminders:
~Please check quantity available when you are ordering. Do not order more than is available – it causes alot of confusion!!!
~ Kany Farms will have a few fresh turkeys available but exact weight will not be posted until Monday night.Wait to order turkeys until then. She said it’s hard to catch a live turkey and get it to stand still on the scale!
~ Don’t worry about placing multiple orders, the software takes care of this for us, it is not a problem.
~ Please try to get gift basket orders in by Monday, so production can keep up.
~Pick up time is 5:30 -6pm.
~ Remember there is NO market on December 26th.

JB Farmers Market open for Dec 12th pick-up


Thanks to all for making our first indoor market go smoothly, light and heat will become increasingly valuable as we proceed into the winter. Jen,Debbie, and Karen were our necessary helpers this last week.
Stephanie McAlister took home the prize of a dozen eggs from Kany Farm. This week’s prize is a Cornish game hen, also from Kany Farm. Good luck on winning that.
Vendor delivery from 4:30 to 5:15 and customer pick-up from 5:30 to 6:00

Online Ordering is open for Nov 28th Pick-up


Get in the shopping mood…lots of great products this week including decor for your house and gift baskets for your family and friends. Not to mention – of course, lots of good eats!

Reminder to customers: Pick up time on Wednesday is from 5:30 to 6pm. You can come early, but…you may have to wait for the vendors to complete their delivery. Also, we are trying very hard to make sure that all orders are complete, but it is a huge help to us if each customer takes the time to check that what is in the basket matches their invoice. Adjustments made at pick-up are so much easier than those that have to be made later.

Looking forward to seeing you Wednesday.
Market Managers
