Rainy weather didn't put a damper on the start of strawberry season in Middle Tennessee.

The Nashville Farmers' Market hosted the 4th annual Strawberry Jubilee Saturday.

More than 100 vendors were on hand to sell more than 8,000 quarts of strawberries. Visitors also enjoyed live music and cooking demonstrations.

Thousands of people were expected to stop by throughout the day. Vendors said it’s a great way to start the summer season.

“It’s just great to get people excited to kick it off, have people coming through here,” said Sasha Reed, of Green Door Gourmet. “Strawberries are a wonderful treat, to have fresh ones. It is nice to have the excitement for the season.”

Strawberry season will continue for about six weeks.
