Market Square Farmers Market

This week: cucumbers; red leaf lettuce; arugula; basil; Kabocha, butternut, delicata and spaghetti squashes; baby okra; green, purple, or Japanese eggplant; garlic; chard; a few heirloom and cherry tomatoes; cheese-type pumpkins; long beans; purple bell or habanero peppers.






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
