Get to know Hope Farms

Our first vendor: Steve and Becky Mallory of Hope Farms & Studio

Hope farms began 4 years ago when Steve and Becky Mallory decided to move to their family farm and live out their dream of growing a wide range of produce and flowers, from tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, sunflowers and lettuces. They practice organic fertilizing methods and companion planting as well as organic pest control methods. Steve has a background in rural farming and Becky is a artist, dying fabrics with natural dyes she even grows herself! They are dedicated to bringing you quality produce picked day of or day before market which is certainly going to last longer and taste better than any store bought. Drop by their stand and say hello; they are beautiful people with an amazing story providing some of the freshest produce, grown locally!

Changes to the domestic kitchen laws effective 2017

We have added a link under the vendor documents section to include the recent changes to the domestic kitchen laws that went into effect in 2017.

In summary:

On April 17, 2017, the latest wave of changes to Tennessee’s Domestic Kitchen Laws were signed by Governor Bill Haslam (Appendix A). These alterations will change the requirements for those who will be preparing non-potentially hazardous foods from their home kitchens. This fact sheet addresses the state regulatory framework after June 17, 2017, for individuals wishing to prepare foods in their domestic kitchen for sale.

WHICH FOODS CAN BE MADE IN A HOME KITCHEN? Only foods considered non-potentially hazardous can be made in home kitchens. Examples of these foods are: • Baked goods that do not require refrigeration. • Jams, jellies and preserves. • Candy. • Dried baking or spice blends. Non-potentially hazardous foods do not support the growth of harmful bacteria and the processing steps do not require stringent controls to assure a safe product. It should be understood that while these foods are inherently lower risk, it does not mean that they are without risk. They are still prone to cross-contamination from other foods in the kitchen or allergens.

Potentially hazardous food products that cannot be made in a home kitchen include: • Pickled vegetables and eggs. • Sauces and dressings. • Products that contain meat or poultry. • Any food that must be refrigerated.

Please refer to the whole document, which can be found here, if you do or plan on doing any home baking for selling at the DSFM.

Encore Performance of Eugene Wolf

Special Encore Appearance by Eugene Wolf
at Depot Street Farmers Market’s
farm to fork event:
Abundant Harvest Dinner
August 10, 6-9 pm
on the Terrace at The General Morgan Inn

 

EUGENE WOLF is an entertainer. From Greeneville. He won his first talent contest at the Capitol Theater in 1957 at the age of 2 and has been entertaining ever since. He was raised by his grandmother, Bernice Rader, who took him along with her to perform while she sold Avon to the lucky ladies. That’s where he honed his skills.

For the past 20 years he has been a member of Barter Theatre’s Acting Company and a member of the country singing duo Brother Boys, who, along with Dolly Parton are featured prominently on the new compilation CD, “On Top Of Old Smoky: New Old Time Smoky Mountain Country Music”.

He made his movie debut in THE CURSE, directed by David Keith. He appeared in BOX OF MOONLIGHT with John Turturro and Sam Rockwell and on television as A. P. Carter in the PBS documentary, WILL THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN and the BBC’s LOST HIGHWAY. He created the role for Barter Theatre’s KEEP ON THE SUNNY SIDE.

It was clear from the start that music would provide his path in life. Eugene will perform a one- man show about growing up in Greeneville with his grandmother and how music fit into their plan to make him a romantic leading man. Or at least sell a couple of bottles of Skin­So­Soft.
