Cumberland Sustainable Farmers’ Market (CSFM), is an online farmers’ market providing consumers a convenient way to support local family farms—from the comfort of your home computer! Our goal is to keep family farms in business, while supplying Crossville, TN and the surrounding region with the freshest, healthiest, naturally raised produce available!
How Does It Work?
- Farmers create their own “grower account” on our website. When their growing standards have been assessed, and they’ve been approved, they can list products that they have for sale with the quantity available and their own price.
- On Sunday afternoons, ordering is opened, which means customers can login to their accounts, and order what they want—ordering closes Tuesday evening, which means you have two days to choose what you want, from who you want!
- On Wednesday growers get a packing list—showing them what they’ve “sold,” days before they even have picked the produce!
- This system provides farmers with a guaranteed outlet for their produce, while ensuring customers get the freshest produce possible! Farmers don’t have to guess what will sell at market this week, and have to take home a pile of unsold produce—and customers don’t have to sort through produce at a grocery store trying to find a decent head of lettuce, or bunch of radishes!

How Do You Join?
To Join the CSFM, create an account on our signup page you will then receive emails letting you know when the market is open, and what products are available!
Unlike other co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want, from the farms that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, meats, baked goods, fresh flowers, and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
