Nashville Area Farmers’ Market Openings 2018

April showers bring May flowers…  and fruits and vegetables! For many of us, farmers markets are a summertime tradition, and opening day is highly anticipated each year. Neighborhood farmers markets provide a more relaxed way of shopping for food, crafts and other items, and a place where we can meet up with friends and get to know our local farmers and artisans.  Many of the markets even have food trucks and live music, so shopping becomes more fun and less of a chore.  While most of the Middle Tennessee farmers markets are set to open in May, the Old Hickory Village Farmers Market and the Gallatin Farmers Market opened in April, and the Franklin Farmers Market and the Nashville Farmers Market remain open year-round.

The Nashville Farmers Market, which has been in business since the early 1800s, has grown over the years and now covers 16 acres of urban land!  In addition to the daily market with local farmers, artisans and other merchants, there are numerous restaurants, a weekend flea market, and frequent special events such as cooking demonstrations and classes.  And if you love fresh strawberries, you don’t want to miss the 4th Annual Strawberry Jubilee on May 5th!  The Nashville Farmers Market also hosts a monthly Night Market on the third Friday of each month, offering folks a chance to shop, eat, drink and listen to live music.
