Bring the kids to the Franklin Farmers Market this Saturday to take pictures with Santa while you shop for the freshest food brought to you by our local farmers. Cool season crops are in abundance for soups, stews, and sautés, and get your locally-raised roasts and briskets for your special holiday dinner. Celebrate the season by shopping local with our artisans for handmade gifts and stocking stuffers, or get your loved one the perfect work of art or handcrafted piece of furniture to place underneath the tree. This Saturday is the last market day before Christmas, so come to take pictures with Santa and get your shopping in, too, at the Franklin Farmers Market!
This Saturday is the final market day before Santa makes his journey Christmas night. And though he is very busy making toys for all the good little girls and boys, he has agreed to make a special trip to our farmers’ market so our younger shoppers can take pictures with Santa while you shop for locally-grown food and artisan gifts. Santa will be dressed in his full regalia, so bring the little ones in their holiday best and snap a few photos to share with family and friends.
After visiting with Mr. Claus, take a tour through our market booths to find the freshest vegetables available in Tennessee. You’ll find just-picked brussel sprouts to sauté with bacon or roast with pecans, giant heads of broccoli and cauliflower, bushels of candy-sweet sweet potatoes, baby bok choy, and so much more. We are certainly not short of locally-grown produce in December at our farmers’ market.
For your special holiday dinner, choose from every kind of protein imaginable. Our farmers provide our market with everything from lamb to pork to beef, bison, chicken, goat, and more. Select a sumptuous brisket from Bear Creek Farm to braise for Christmas dinner or bone-in ribeye steaks from River Cottage Farm to make your holiday dinner extra special.
After taking pictures with Santa, support your local makers, bakers, designers, and crafters by shopping for locally-made gifts! Our artisans offer a wide selection from the smallest pair of beautifully designed earrings to large handcrafted Adirondack chairs. Find stocking stuffers like handmade soaps, natural body care products and assorted jams and jellies. Or, celebrate the season with hand-poured holiday candles, apple cider, spiced loose tea, or handmade Christmas banners to hang on your wall. It will be a holiday extravaganza this Saturday, so don’t miss it! And don’t forget to take the kids’ pictures with Santa! He will be happy to see them whether they’ve been naughty or nice.
