As we transition into fall, we’re finding endless meal-planning possibilities at the East Nashville Farmers Market! Our local farmers are bringing plenty of fresh produce including green beans, eggplant, peppers, fall squashes, new batches of tomatoes and zucchini, and much more! Our special musical guest will be the beloved Lillie Syracuse dazzling our crowds with her rockin’ country blues that you don’t want to miss. We’ll have the best local food trucks serving vegetarian and kid-friendly dinner options for our families on the lawn. Or, grab a package of fresh Nicoletto’s pasta, some specialty mushrooms, and a fresh Porter House Bistro Baguette, and you’ll find endless meal-planning possibilities for your Wednesday night dinner from the East Nashville Farmers Market.
First things’ first, folks let’s talk about all the wonderful food our farmers and artisan vendors will be bringing to market this week. Green Door Gourmet will have their usual array of gorgeous heirloom tomatoes, plus freshly picked bulbs of garlic and bunches of parsley—perfect to pair with Nicoletto’s locally-made fresh pastas.
Delvin Farms will be bringing their freshly-made salsas in Mild, Medium, and Fire Hot, plus mounds of crisp ‘Blue Lake’ green beans and heirloom fingerling potatoes. And Flying S Farm will have baskets of gorgeous peppers in all colors and heat levels. There really is endless meal-planning possibilities this week with all the fresh food available at our market.
Speaking of Flying S Farms, if you haven’t tried a loaf of Catherine Simmon’s famous friendship bread, you really have been missing out! This sweet sourdough bread comes in many flavors, such as traditional Vanilla-Cinnamon and the decadent Triple Chocolate made with Ghirardelli chocolate chips, chocolate pudding, and dark cocoa. You’ll form instant friendships with your neighbors on the lawn once you bag a loaf or two of Catherine’s freshly-baked sweet bread. So see you all enjoying fresh local food this week at the East Nashville Farmers market!
