Fresh organically-grown corn right off the farm will be arriving at the East Nashville Farmers Market in Shelby park this week! That’s right, folks, truckloads of the sweetest Tennessee corn delivered straight from the field to you, our market shoppers. Come try a sample and taste the freshness! We’re pleased to announce Bradford Lee Folk and the Bluegrass Playboys as our special musical guest. Food trucks will be the popular Jones Press serving Panini sandwiches for you and the kids to enjoy, plus Pita Pit and Bradley’s Curbside Creamery to beat the summer heat. We’re also excited to announce Professor Bailey’s new Spicy Pimento Cheese Gougeres to the list of items found at our farmers’ market. So grab the kids, your blanket, and some extra large shopping bags, folks, because you aren’t going to want to miss all the freshness to find down in Shelby Park!
Fist thing’s thing, let’s talk sweet corn. Our farmers grow the sweetest organically-grown corn varieties in some of the most fertile regions of Tennessee and will be bringing it fresh from the field to you our market shoppers. We’re excited to announce Cam Conry from Conry Farms will be arriving with a truckload of his favorite sweet corn this Wednesday at our farmers’ market. You can also find an extra load of Delvin Farms organically-grown sweet corn brought to you fresh from the field. This local sweet corn is so fresh — juicy, sweet, crunchy, and nutritious. Come try a sample and taste the freshness yourself. We love to grill sweet corn and slice leftover kernels into a giant pot of grilled corn soup with roasted chicken.
In addition to loads of fresh, Tennessee sweet corn, our market is over-flowing with giant heirloom tomatoes for summer tomato sandwiches and sweet cherry varieties for salads. From Oak Grove Farm to Flying “S” Farm to Green Door Gourmet and Old School Farm, our farmers have all the heirlooms you need — Cherokee Purple, Amish Paste, Brandywine, White Beauties, and much more!
