This year we have over 40 vendors made up of local farmers, bakers and artisans. We are proud to be a producers only market! Every vendor at the market is the person who grows the food, raises the animal, bakes the bread, makes the cheese, or creates the artisan craft. Talk to your farmers and get to know them. We invite you to ask questions and learn more about the local producers at our market.

The East Nashville Farmers Market was the first market in the Nashville area to offer SNAP/EBT market wide. We are honored to once again offer EBT/SNAP benefits allowing everyone access to healthy food.

This marks the 8th year of the East Nashville Farmers market. We have grown from a few vendors selling outside the Turnip Truck, to a large farmers market offering a one-stop shopping venue. You can purchase your bread, meat, milk, cheese, produce and more and be assured that your purchases are supporting small family farms while giving back to your local economy and community.
