Market Square Farmers Market

I still have mostly leaves. Summer stuff soon.

This week: various lettuces, arugula, mustard, garlic scapes, collards, red and curly kales, chard, and te you.


Too-lighted photo: arugula, corn, tomatoes, and many white row covers in background. Covers retain heat, exclude insects.




I have learned that many assume that all market farmers sell organic produce. This assumption is false. The majority of growers in the Knoxville markets are conventional. My USDA organic status is verified by independent inspection. Some farmers operate under the "certified naturally grown" standard similar to USDA organic: this regime is self-policed by member growers. Please see organic farming for details.



Hines Valley Farm is half an hour west of Knoxville, on the western edge of Lenoir City, 19801 Hines Valley Road.  Email
