The WEST TENNESSEE FARMERS MARKET, Jackson, TN: EVERY SATURDAY!! No more confusing every other week ends! Our Stall assignment is Shed 1 Stall 7 (we are splitting a stall with the Honey Folks, so look for us on one side of the stall and then hop over and buy your Raw Honey and Fresh baked bread on the other side of the stall!).
The COOPER YOUNG COMMUNITY FARMERS MARKET, Memphis, TN: EVERY SATURDAY!! Stall assignment to be announced!
The MEMPHIS FARMERS MARKET, Memphis, TN: Every OTHER Saturday, Beginning 4/12 Stall 38, and when space is available on the alternating weeks (sorry, there will still be confusion in this market, but hop over to Cooper Young when in doubt, or check our Facebook page on Thursdays for our MFM participation). We requested weekly placement, but their market is full. Just a testament to how folks feel about FRESH!! But mention us to the Market Manager. Allison if you feel led. Support may help to ensure a spot for us when an opening occurs!
The Ovens were delayed due to the sleet/freezing rain that crippled our community last week. They finally arrived on Friday, and did you all miss a show! We got a crew of muscular guys together to unload the 500 lb ovens, but discovered muscles are no match when unloading over 6 inches of ice. Brain was the WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER! and thank goodness the truck driver had some! Due do his great plan and skill in maneuvering his truck, 4 hr 45 minutes later, we had all 3 ovens in the shop with no injuries!!! (it was dicey a time or two as the guys feet went sailing this way and that.)
The ovens are due to be hooked up tomorrow (Tuesday). We continue to clean and have painting plans. Why is this not moving as fast in real life as it did in my head? I honestly thought a week tops and we'd be moved in...hmmmm. Now my goal is April 1.
Because of all the activity, the Carrot Garden and Banana Flip Dog Treats are also delayed in their release. Look for them, starting with the April Markets (or if you live near the Dyersburg, TN area, Animal Care Hospital @ 1991 St John's Ave has a few bags in the Small sized treats). We will extend their release date by a month or so because we did not get them out on time...but there are only so many hours in a day. Unless we have volunteers for clean up, paint, mop, wall washing...(crickets...hmmm thought so! lol).
As you can see, it is a busy time in the Farm House, but we wouldn't have it any other way! We love doing what we do! And just a reminder! We are in the homestretch of the Yogurt Iced Moon/Stars Peanut Butter Lovers Dog Treats that we donate $1.00 from the sale of each bag to Relay for Life. These are available at every market and in our Online Store. We want to make this a record breaking year in the fight against Cancer!
Now...back to baking and cleaning, baking and cleaning....Have a great week!!
