Welcome to the Mobile Farmers’ Market! We are gearing up for the growing season of 2014, and we are excited to have new and old customers joining us for this adventure. We only have a few things on the market right now, but you can expect a wider variety of fresh farm food as the season moves forward.
For those of you who haven’t used the Mobile Farmers’ Market before, here’s how it works:
The market opens on Friday at 10:00 AM. I will post a blog each week around that time as a reminder that the market is open. The blog will highlight some of that week’s products, and will include a recipe. Place your orders any time from 10:00 AM Friday until Monday at noon, when the market will close for the week.
If you live in downtown Greeneville or Tusculum, you can meet us at Takoma Hospital, or you can order delivery right to your door! Delivery takes place from 9:00 until 11:30 on Wednesday morning.
Otherwise, you can pick up your orders at Rural Resources on Thursday evening when we host our seasonal suppers (you can arrange other times to pick up by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 423-636-8171).
We would love to have other food producers on the market! If you are interested in selling, sign up on the “Our Growers” page or contact us at the e-mail/phone number above for more information!
Thanks for your support of fresh, local food—and happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing moms out there!

Local Product Highlights
This week we have green garlic, which has a delicate, nutty flavor and can be used in recipes that call for garlic, leeks, onions or scallions.
We also have nettles, which are packed with nutrients, and can be cooked to get rid of their famous sting!
Don’t forget to order delivery to your home or business if you live in Greeneville/Tusculum city limits (add your address and phone number in the comments section of your order when you check out). Order more than $50 worth of products and your delivery is FREE!
We also have lots of ground sausage from Rural Resources’ very own pastured pork, as well as homemade frozen pizzas featuring local meats, prepared by Teen Program participants.
