**For the first time this year, we are reserving two vendor
spaces to allow new vendors to try the market. They have been given an
opportunity to sign up for several Saturdays to introduce their products to our
market customers. This will also give customers an opportunity to see new
sellers each week at the market.
*The Master Gardeners of
Rutherford County will have a space at the market this year. Each week they
will present mini-tutorials for customers and share their knowledge of
gardening. Topics for May:
May 22 – Starting Your
Garden from Seed
May 29 – Creating
Beautiful Container Gardens
**Sarah you might want to
elaborate on the addition of the downtown businesses coming to the market.
**Musicians will be
playing at the market again this season. Two of our favorites—Joshua Guaz and
Sophie Buck have already been scheduled and more musicians lined up for market
Saturdays. (I have photos of both of them Sarah).
**Market Give-Away: We
will be having an end of the month drawing in June, July, August, September,
and October. Market customers may enter each week they attend the market for a
variety basket of market produce and products, donated by our vendors. Sign up during
the market. Our first drawing will be on opening day, May 22. We had 93 entries
at our Saturday Market table at JazzFest for this first drawing, and the prize
will be awarded on opening day of the market.
Some key points about our
market—for the first-time last year we added artisans/crafters to the market in
October during our expanded market month. The response was overwhelming, and
our regular vendors suggested we include artisans/crafters all season. We have
invited four popular vendors back as full-season vendors this year: Linda
Parker with Nashville Quilts, Richard Zago with Ol School Forge (Blacksmith),
Kay and Rick Brown with Scent of the Sun (homemade soaps), and James Elkins
with Silver Satyr Designs (wood cuts). A number of our farm vendors also
brought their handmade craft items to sell. It was a plus for the market and
for our customers.
You can’t have a Farmer’s
Market without fresh flowers, and we are fortunate to have three cut-flower
sellers whose fresh bouquets sell out every week: Lucky Farm, Blue Skye Farm,
and Over the Rainbow Farm. For those of you looking for perennials and unusual garden
varieties of plants for our local area, Clifford’s Perennial and Vine brings an
assortment of must-have plants, ready to put into your gardening space. For
landscaping needs, check out Jonathan Carter’s Nursery space at the market. He
has trees, shrubs, perennials, vegetable plants, and ferns. Both of these plant
vendors take time to answer your questions about the plants they sell. At
opening day in May, several of our farm vendors will have hanging baskets and
potted annuals for your gardens and patios.
points—we have a number of local honey sellers and vendors with homemade
jellies, jams, and preserves.
Big hit last year was the
MTSU Creamery truck. Customers lined up waiting for the truck to pull into the
market to sell milk. They are coming back this year and we are delighted. And
there is no shortage of fried pies, cookies, cupcakes, cheesecakes, cinnamon
rolls, and breads to eat with that little jug of milk.
The best in homemade
pimento cheese, country ham and biscuits, chicken salad, and sausage and
biscuits is also available from our food vendors. Thanks to Sanders Brothers
Coffee, you can always start your market morning with a cup of fresh roasted
The market brings
Murfreesboro true Farm to Table food choices and supports our local growers in
their all-important business of feeding Tennessee.
