On the first day for a new Farmer's Market in North Nashville, organizers said the Albion Farmer's Market has been about more than food.

From live music to books for little ones to read, the new market has been a way to bring the community together.

That part of town has been known as a food desert, meaning often times people don't have access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

Those with the market have hoped to change that for people who live there.

“The hope for the future is just to see it grow, to see this neighborhood flourish in a way maybe it’s never seen before, for it to grow, more vendors to come out and support this,” Stephanie Wild said.

The market has been scheduled to be open every Sunday from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. through October 2.
