The Franklin Farmers Market 2nd annual Pardoning of the Turkey is Saturday, November 19th at 10am sponsored by Herban Market. This fun, family oriented event is centered on our market turkey, Danny of Earth’s Advocates Research Farm. Children will be delighted to meet and pet the Royal Palm Heritage breed turkey that will be pardoned by our very own Franklin City Mayor Ken Moore with Assistant Commissioner Ed Harlan.
Children are invited to download this coloring sheet and write a letter to Mayor Moore asking him to grant amnesty to Danny for Thanksgiving. Deliver your letter by 9:45am to the market information tent for a chance to win a farmers market prize! There will also be a coloring tent set up for children visiting the market who want to color and write a letter on Danny’s behalf.
The November farmers market is full of beautiful produce you may not know is still in season, just in time for Thanksgiving! November 19th is the perfect time to buy your sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, leafy greens, radishes, turnips, pumpkins, winter squashes and more! Some farmers will still have cherry tomatoes available to go with the lettuce! Bring your children to the market as we give thanks to the farmers and teach them where our food is grown and enjoy our wonderful celebration of Pardoning of the Turkey!
Herban Market will be offering free tasting of their excellent Olive Oils and Balsamic’s throughout market. We are blessed to have Herban Market as our presenting sponsor for our 2nd annual Pardoning of the Turkey event.
