Market Square Farmers Market

Produce this week:

Arugula; red or green leaf lettuces; zucchini or pattypan squash; Cherokee (purple or green), hybrid, or cherry tomatoes; red or white potatoes; many varieties of eggplant; sweet dumpling, spaghetti, or miniature butternut squashes; a tan pumpking that tastes like an excellent squash; cantaloupe; watermelon; purple or green bell peppers, with some hungarian hot or jalapenos; white sweet corn; red or green okra.

The Hines Valley Farm on facebook has nothing to do with me! It is instead a development group trying to sell land.

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.

 

*Market Square lies between Walnut, Wall, S. Gay, and Union streets downtown.

 

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