What local ingredients contribute for a successful farmers market? Farm Fresh Produce, the best-hardworking local farmers, bakers and artisans with a community that embraces farm fresh food. That’s exactly what happens every Saturday morning of the year in Franklin Tennessee. We are blessed to live in Tennessee where farming is still a way of life for many Tennesseans. Franklin families gather each Saturday at the Franklin Farmers Market to see, touch and smell farm fresh produce our local farmers have been growing on their local farms.
On Saturday we had beautiful squash, zucchini, peas, green beans, potatoes, herbs, peppers, over 30 different varieties of tomatoes, peaches, eggs, lettuces, blueberries, eggplant, fresh baked breads, home made pasta, okra, garlic, onions, watermelons, jams, jellies, preserves, radishes, Tennessee sweet corn, fresh baked tomato pies and Tennessee’s best local farm meats of beef, chicken and pork!
Our local artisans bring everything from fresh baked goods to farm made soaps; hand crafted artisan wood, peanut butter, lemonades with fresh peaches and watermelons mixed in, tie dye clothing, farm plants, real handmade barn wood signs, artisan jewelry, custom made corn hole boards and fresh baked Greek pastries.
Thank you to all our customers who travel from all over Middle Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Kentucky to shop for farm fresh food each Saturday morning.
This coming Saturday is our Watermelon Festival sponsored again this year by Whole Foods. Our local market will be stocked full with a bumper crop of watermelons. We will have watermelons by the slice, watermelon drinks, a seed spitting contest and the fastest watermelon eating contest. Don’t miss Franklin’s Watermelon Festival this coming Saturday!
