Farmers' Market Week Kicks Off In Nashville

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Fresh produce and home grown foods were up for grabs as Farmers' Market week kicked off at Sevier Park Tuesday.

The farmers' market in the 12 South district was the first to open this week. This will be the third season as several markets in the area take part in the events.

Thirty-five vendors participated in Tuesday's event at Sevier Park. Organic, fresh and local products are what draw people to local farmers markets like shopper GG Goad.

"More markets are starting to pop up. So we have the East Nashville market tomorrow, Donelson Farmers' Market on Friday, and several on Saturday. So, it just shows that people want this, and they want it close to home where they can walk to their markets, or drive a couple miles and not have to drive clear across the city to get what they want," said Goad.

One of the vendors, Delvin Farms in Williamson County, said they started harvesting all their produce at 6 a.m. Tuesday to offer their produce as fresh as possible.

"Everything you see at Delvin Farms came from our farm. We are certified organic farm in College Grove. We grow in the greenhouse from seed, to field to table, so everything is grown by us and harvested by us."
