Tomorrow at the Market (Oct 27th)

It’s the last Saturday market!

Because we value you ALL, below you will find both a generic and farmer-by-farmer list for our closing week!

But first—want to make sure you all know a couple of things:

1) Our market will be open online all winter, with the exception of Christmas week. Several new vendors are planning to sell online so we should see more produce as long as it’s available, plus goat cheese, lamb, chicken, beef, sausage, breads, croissants & more! Market will open for ordering November 4th.

2) NEW for the holiday season: Farmers market gift baskets! We have designed two sizes (thank you Bear) and you will be able to customize your own or purchase a pre-selected gift assortment. More details to come! The baskets will be available starting mid-November online, and also at the holiday markets in Jonesborough (Saturdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas). Samples will be on display at the info booth tomorrow. Come check them out and start to think about all the great gift possiblities from the market!
