Farmer’s Market

The Scott County Farmers Market is an official member of the Tennessee Association of Farmers Markets and is located at 600 Scott High Dr. in Huntsville, TN. Historically, the Farmers Market is open on Saturdays from 9:00am to 2:00pm throughout the summer (June – Sept). Vendors range from produce, honey, baked goods, crafts, to just about anything that helps diversify and create a unique experience for our community. Our vendors follow the Tennessee Department of Agriculture State Compliance Guide, which ensures safe products and promotes Scott County agriculture. The Farmers Market Board was also established on a non-profit basis to provide market capabilities for farmers and crafters, high-quality produce to consumers, and maintain basic operating standards. Membership is open to anyone within the community that is dedicated to improving our farmers market for both vendors and consumers.

 

It is easy to become a vendor! Only two documents are required including a vendor application and vendor participation agreement along with the $30 annual fee payable to UT-TSU Extension Scott County.

Simple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 2 large or 3 small sweet potatoes
  • 2 tsp oil (I use grapeseed or avocado oil for high heat)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder, or to taste
  • 1 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Wash and scrub sweet potatoes thoroughly. No need to peel them! Dry potatoes well with a towel or paper towel.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes in half length-wise, and then cut each half into 4 long strips. Chop each of the strips into small cubes, about 1/2 thick.
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread onto baking sheet, drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Toss to coat.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crisped, flipping once halfway through to make sure that both sides get crispy. Turn broiler on low for 60 seconds at the end if needed to get crispy.
