Get your last taste of summer this week at the Franklin Farmers Market. That’s right, the last summer market day is upon us, and we want to celebrate the changing of the season with you, our market shoppers. To ensure you optimize your last experience this week, we’ve made a quick and simple guide to get your last taste of summer flavors, fruits, and vegetables. Enjoy!
Put Some Ice in That Coffee! Get your morning started right at the Franklin Farmers Market with a nice cup of joe–iced! Pretty soon, mornings will be too chilly to enjoy a cool morning pick-me-up, so opt for an iced coffee this Saturday—our vendors are happy to oblige! 8th and Roast brings a fresh “keg” of iced coffee on tap every morning to our market, so stop by their tent to grab one last iced coffee of the year.
Blueberries All Year Long. Who says you can’t enjoy blueberries all year long?? At the Franklin Farmers Market, we enjoy these summer berries before, during, and even after their season ends by snagging a jar of blueberry preserves from one of our vendors. Grab a classic jar of preserves from Kelley’s Berry Farm for your hot buttered biscuits or one of many delicious concoctions such as Blueberry-Jalapeno Jam from Blue Honey Farms for your cream cheese and cracker plates.
Have a Barbecue. Nothing feels more like summer than a backyard barbecue with friends and family, and the Franklin Farmers Market is the place to find all your locally-raised beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and bison. You can find every cut of meat, from filet mignon to rib-eye to whole chickens and lamb chops. So get the best quality cuts from your local farmers this Saturday at our farmers’ market.
Juice! Fresh-pressed, please. One way to get your last taste of summer fruits and vegetables is in a refreshing, fresh-pressed juice from one of our local juice vendors. Both Franklin Juice Company and Juice Nashville provide our shoppers with fresh flavor combinations that really capture the essence of summer. So grab a bottle or two while you can.
Produce, produce, produce! Finally, the very best way to get your last taste of summer at the Franklin Farmers Market is to stock-up on all the amazing summer produce our local farmers are still bringing to market. Tomatoes, eggplant, squash, zucchini, okra and more are ripe and abundant for ratatouille, sautés, pasta dishes, and purees. So grab a stash of your favorite summer veggies and taste the flavors of summer while you still can.
