Santa Visits Franklin Farmers Market

There was a little chill in the air at the Franklin Farmers Market this past Saturday, but it was all good. After all, Christmas is just 17 days away, so a little cold weather was appropriate. It looked like quite a few of you thought so too, as we saw several of Riverbend Nursery’s beautiful Christmas trees strapped to cars and going home with happy people. And quite a few of you were picking out unique gifts from the local artisans at the market too. Gifts that are extra special, because they are handcrafted and created right here in Tennessee.

Littles ones where happy to see Santa at Market!

To top it all off, a visit by a certain gentleman carrying lots of jingle bells made it official – Christmas is just around the corner!

Santa’s visit to the FFM this past Saturday was a jolly good time for a lot of little kids and some big “kids” too. It was kind of funny because there were many children who were so excited to be talking to Santa that they forgot what they wanted him to bring for Christmas! But Santa was prepared and he gave every boy and girl a little present for the holidays. It was a colorful jingle bell just like the ones the reindeer wear when pulling his sleigh.

There are only two more Saturdays to shop at the Franklin Farmers Market for the perfect gifts and the best food for holiday meals. Don’t forget, a lot of farmers and bakers at the FFM can take pre-orders for food, so you get exactly what you want for your holiday meals. And several of the artisans do custom work too. Make the holidays extra happy – find what you need to do so at the Franklin Farmers Market!
