WOW…that pretty much sums up this past Saturday at the Franklin Farmers Market. The weather was perfect, the crowds were huge and the food was incredibly fresh and delicious. Almost everybody sold out!
Getting into market was a bit of a challenge though and even with one of Franklin’s finest directing traffic, cars were still backed up over the railroad tracks on Liberty Pike.
No wonder why the crowds were so big. There were lots of goodies at the market, including a good supply of Tennessee strawberries, asparagus and tender cuts of steaks for the Memorial Day grill-out.
And as our farmers keep growing, so will the demand to buy delicious fresh food at the market.
So here’s a tip on getting into the market faster: Use a different entrance. Use the one closer to the front of The Factory complex, near the Liberty Pike/Franklin Road traffic light. Or better yet, use the entrance off Franklin Road that’s located on the far side of The Factory.
Just look for the market’s sign at the entrance, then use the parking at the side of the building. Thank you to all our Tennessee Farmers on a wonderful day!
