NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — After being closed nearly a week, the Nashville Farmers' Market has reopened its doors.

The market currently houses 20 businesses inside the market house. One of those is HeArt of Nashville, owned by artist Anna B. Webb who said it felt great to get back to work.

Webb said its been a roller coaster of a year for the Farmers' Market businesses following tornado damage, the pandemic, and now the winter storm.

"If we learned anything about 2020, we learned that you kind of just have to think on your feet and be prepared for anything because if it can happen it just might," she said.

Succulent Vegan Tacos just opened in the Farmers Market last October. Co-owner Ronald Cerdas said the business lost at least $1,500 in sales after having to close its doors because of the winter storm.

"It is definitely bad, I mean, it is a whole five days without any customers so it is a big impact to our finances for the month," said Cerdas.

He said although the restaurant lost business because of the closure, he's thankful to see his customers safely return.
