You’ve all been waiting for it, folks, so we are excited to announce the debut of sweet local cherry tomatoes at the East Nashville Farmers Market! Plus, more varieties of locally-grown fruits and vegetables this week, such as bell peppers, new potatoes, fennel, cabbages and more. Our musical guest, Robert Tigert, will be strumming country and blues tunes for our crowd on the lawn, and the Jones Press food truck will be offering their hot, tasty sandwiches for our shoppers to enjoy. Plus, Moovers and Shakers mobile milkshake and soda parlor will be serving cool treats to beat the heat. So break-out your biggest shopping bags and blankets, folks, because this week at the East Nashville Farmers Market is the place to be for fresh, local food.
Last week was an exciting week! We saw fresh cauliflower, fennel, green beans, shitake mushrooms, patty pan squash, and more. This week, expect to find the same, plus the first arrival of Sweet Treat cherry tomatoes brought to you fresh from Delvin Farms. Bell peppers and new potatoes from Oak Grove Farms should be available, plus Savoy cabbage and Chioggia striped beets from Green Door Gourmet. The meal-planning possibilities will be endless at our farmers’ market!
We’d also like to welcome our new farmers, vendors, and food artisans. Porter House Bistro has been wowing our shoppers with their freshly-baked foccacia, baguettes, and tomato bread. Quarter Spring Farm from Liberty, TN, is now offering locally-raised chicken and eggs. Bloomin’ Shrooms is providing exceptional shitake mushrooms. Plus, Hickory Hollow is back again this year with their smoky, sweet Shagbark Syrup.
And finally, we are happy to welcome the newest addition to our market — baby Harper! Jami and Russell from Slocal offer impeccably-fresh herbs and potted plants at our market, so stop by their booth to get your mint, basil, oregano, and more. Also, say hello to the newest member of our farmers’ market family.
As always, our market has your Wednesday night dinner plans covered with the best local food trucks Nashville has to offer! So come one, come all, and definitely come hungry for this plentiful week at the East Nashville Farmers Market.
