The East Nashville Farmers Market is the place to experience fresh, local food and perfect weather in the park this week. Located in scenic Shelby Park along the beautiful Cumberland River, our market is a destination spot for neighbors to gather on picnic blankets and enjoy fresh produce and local food from our farmers, vendors, and food trucks. Our special musical guests will be the outstanding young talents Someday Soon Bluegrass, and we are thrilled to welcome back executive chef Hrant Arakelian of Holland House Bar and Refuge and Butchertown Hall as our featured chef this week! So grab an extra-large picnic blanket (and an appetite to match) and enjoy fresh local food and perfect weather in the park this week.
First thing’s first, friends, let’s talk produce! Flying S Farm will be displaying an array of beautiful hot and sweet peppers along with their delicious jams, jellies, and freshly-baked breads. Green Door Gourmet will be setting-up baskets of heirloom eggplant, squashes, perfectly-picked okra, greens, and more, and Delvin Farms will host a new crop of sweet corn, plus kale, cherry tomatoes, and fingerling potatoes at their booth. We’ll have perfect produce AND perfect weather in the park this week, for sure.
Joining us to celebrate such perfect weather in the park this week will be executive chef Hrant Arakelian of Holland House Bar and Refuge and Butchertown Hall to give the last chef demo of the summer. We’re not sure what chef Arakelian will have up his chef coat sleeves, but considering the outstanding demonstration he gave at our Tomato Throwdown 2015, we’re confident he will wow our market crowds once again. You can find him and his seasonal culinary creation at the chef demo tent this Wednesday.
