We asked you to come to the Franklin Farmers Market for “Shop Small Business Saturday” and you did, buying unique gifts from our artisans and fresh food from our farmers.
It made perfect sense to buy handcrafted gifts and food from local artisans and Tennessee farmers. Not only do you get creative gifts and the best in fresh food from the FFM, you are also helping the local economy. An average of $68 of every $100 spent at a local small business goes back into the community’s economy. Yes, it was a bit chilly this past Saturday, but it was worth the trip to the market for our Shop Small Business Saturday day. Thank you for making Small Business Saturday a great day at the Franklin Farmers Market. But if you didn’t make it to the FFM, don’t worry. The best in fresh food can always been found and there’s plenty of great gifts to be had too, just in time for Christmas.
You need to find gifts for your kids’ teachers, your employees, clients and the budding chef in the family. No problem. Stop by the FFM info booth and pick up a copy of the market’s “Eating in Season” cookbook. It’s full of delicious recipes for each season from our farmers. Let’s say you’re shopping the FFM and see some great looking butternut squash, but you really don’t know how to prepare it. All you have to do is to take a look at the winter section of our “Eating in Season” cookbook and Voilà – you’ll find the perfect recipe for Butternut something soup. The Eating in Season cookbook is just $15 (plus tax) and there’s a special discount rate when you buy a case. Give a delicious gift – The Eating in Season cookbook.
Get the cameras ready – the big man himself, Santa Claus will be at the Franklin Farmers Market this Saturday!
From 9am until noon, Santa will be in his big rocking chair and ready to visit with all good girls and boys. Santa’s even got a special little gift for the kids too. Come by and tell Santa what you want to find under the Christmas tree!
