Greetings, Members, Customers, Vendors, and Business Partners of Three Rivers Market.  We are pleased to inform you that Three Rivers Market recently underwent a re-inspection by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture for food retail operations. We are proud to share that we have achieved a score of 91.

At TRM, we are dedicated to continuous improvement. Our team has been diligently working to continue to implement enhanced staff training protocols and establish more comprehensive Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure compliance and excellence in all our operations.

In light of the inspection findings, we have taken proactive measures to address structural areas that require immediate attention We are focused on maintaining a safe and high-quality environment for our community, and we are grateful for your continued support as we strive to exceed expectations in all aspects of our business. As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance TRM, we have been working cooperatively and collaborating closely with the UFCW Local to implement necessary improvements and ensure the well-being of our stakeholders.

Are you ready for Father’s Day?  If you’re at a loss for what to give the father figure in your life, consider the Every Man Jack line of products.

From shampoos and body washes to deodorants and face moisturizers, Every Man Jack offers a full range of dad-bod-glorifying items that make perfect Father’s Day gifts.

Not so coincidentally, the entire Every Man Jack line will be ON SALE from June 5 – 18!

The co-op also carries dad-enhancing products from Badger, Herban Cowboy and Andalou.


Are you seeking change? One of the most radical acts one can do is to buy local. Our produce team is committed to carrying a wide assortment of vegetables sustainably grown by your neighbors: hardworking visionaries who have chosen a livelihood of growing food for their community.

Farms which are not USDA certified organic are personally inspected by the Produce Manager, a longtime organic farmer herself, to ensure their growing practices meet Certified Naturally Grown standards.

The only place where you will find more local veg is at the farmers market, where growing practices are not clearly posted. When shopping at Three Rivers Market, you can rest assured this research has been done for you. Only farmers who use ecologically friendly growing practices are featured at our store. They reliably deliver the fruits of their labor all week long, but if the produce does not sell, we cannot buy from them.

Please join our efforts to support these individuals and their families by shopping Three Rivers for your produce needs. This retains wealth within our community which is a cooperative value. Remember also, that the flavor and nutritional value of your meals directly correlates to the ingredients you purchase. All local products are clearly marked, and now, you can find them grouped together on the left side of the wet case and on the center shelves of the cold case for your browsing convenience.

The Barefoot Farmer’s
Latest Book!


With decades of knowledge and proven, common-sense methods from “The Barefoot Farmer,” this practical guide to biodynamic principles and practices will appeal to growers of every scale and experience level.

In Barefoot Biodynamics, organic grower Jeff Poppen—“The Barefoot Farmer”—combines tales from his personal history in rural Tennessee with the practical applications of biodynamic principles and the deep aspects of the biodynamic methods that continue to make his farm a success today.

Jeff’s friendly, direct, and humorous writing will appeal not only to the biodynamic-curious, but also to farmers and gardeners who have experimented with the biodynamic approach and are looking for a deeper understanding of the practice.

Rooted in the teachings of biodynamic pioneer Rudolf Steiner, Jeff’s unique insights and deep reflections on “guiding lines” of biodynamic growing are an invaluable resource.

In June we will be collecting change to help support Friends of the Knox County Public Library.

Members of the Friends of the Knox County Public Library raise funds through book sales, membership dues, and donations. These funds support community outreach and programs not covered by the library’s budget. 

Objective: To raise $7,000 to support next year’s Children’s Festival of Reading which is held annually in May at World’s Fair Park.  

In April, the Board of Directors met at the Birdhouse Neighborhood Center for our Spring Retreat, during which we established our governance priorities for the upcoming fiscal year beginning in July.
