Tips On Storing Fresh Vegetables

The Bellevue Farmers Market offers a wide variety of locally grown produce at our market each Friday night. There’s nothing much better than a local, pesticide free, ‘homegrown’ tomato.  Particularly, a Cherokee Purple.  Purchasing your food at The Bellevue Farmers Market is not just an investment in local farms. It is an investment in your personal health. We want to help you protect your ‘investment’ for as long as possible. MyFitnessPal.com recently posted a chart with tips on storing fresh vegetables.

Meet Our Market Farmers – Buffalo Road Produce

Buffalo Road Produce

Buffalo Road Produce (Buffalo Valley Farm) is a small scale CSA/market farm located on the westernmost edge of Davidson county, between Bellevue and Pegram. We focus on sustainability and quality above all else. We are family owned and operated on our own land which we’ve owned since the early 60’s. We offer a robust variety of produce and other farm goods including free range eggs from our flock, honey from our hives, and Shiitake mushrooms from our mushroom logs. We are also currently experimenting with and trying to produce our own homemade soaps, candles, and other novelty items of the homestead nature. 100% of produce we offer is started and grown on our farm, using certified organic seed and only sustainable farming practices. Methods that our ancestors used in the old days that are tried and true. We strongly believe that these methods are the RIGHT way to farm and we are proud to say that we practice these exclusively. It’s not the easy way to do it by any means, but we are rewarded with knowing we are doing our part to take care of the planet we live on and the people who enjoy what we offer.
