The East Nashville Farmers Market would like you to sample watermelon at our market this week! We will have loads of sweet organic watermelon and cantaloupe for you and the family to taste. Lillie Syracuse will be bringing her country blues tunes for you to enjoy on the lawn. Plus, plenty of food trucks to take care of Wednesday night dinner. So pack your blanket and your taste buds, because the weather isn’t the only thing that’s cooling-off at the East Nashville Farmers Market.
First thing’s first, let’s talk summer melons! It’s that time of year that has everyone excited to chill-out with a juicy bite of sweet Tennessee summer goodness. So come and sample watermelon at our market this week. You will more than likely be leaving with one or two melons for a weekend family treat.
Next, let’s talk about the other summer produce you can find at the East Nashville Farmers Market. Last week, we were crazy for tomatoes! Chef Hrant Arakelian of Holland House Bar and Refuge and Butchertown Hall prepared local, seasonal tomato dishes for our shoppers to enjoy. Read all about which tomatoes won our Tomato Throwdown 2015. Also, take a look at our recipe for Savory Roasted Tomato Galette. You’ll be making savory, hearty tomato dishes for your family in no time.
After you sample watermelon at our market this week, be sure to take a break on our grassy knoll to hear the country blues tunes of the rockin’ Lillie Syracuse. Then, snag a pressed seasonal sandwich from the Jones Press. We’re on the down-slope of summer, folks, so be sure not to miss this refreshing afternoon at the East Nashville Farmers Market!
