Families traveled from all over Middle Tennessee to purchase local fresh food from our winter farmers market on a cold sunny Saturday. The organic Brussels Sprouts from Delvin Farms were gone by 10:30 am and so too were some of the popular homemade soups like Tomato Basil from Lucy’s Kitchen and Corn Chowder from Jones Mill Farm. There were still many locally grown winter produce items available all market long such as collards, carrots, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, cabbage, kale and so much more at our winter farmers market.
Did you know you can purchase handmade alpaca blankets, ski caps, socks and scarves from the Franklin Farmers Market right here in Franklin Tennessee? Legacy Acres Alpacas raises a large herd of Alpacas not far from our farmer’s market. They bring to market hand made winter garments to help keep us warm from the cold winter weather. Alpaca is silky smooth and warmer and softer to our skin than sheep wools. I love my Alpaca ski cap that keeps my head and ears warm without making my head sweat.
Our local artisans handcraft so many unique items like goat milk soap and handmade Barnwood signs. Our local goats milk soap comes from Tottys Bend Soap Farm. The soap comes from their herd of goats. Each goat is hand milked and given careful care. All soaps are made right on the farm and offered at market each market Saturday. Tom the Furniture Guy handcrafts each barnwood sign right here in Tennessee. Visitors can also order custom designed signs from Tom each Saturday at market.
Be sure to visit market photos from this past Saturday’s market so you know what we have at market. Next week we will have farm fresh lettuce mix from Norton Family Farms along with local produce, canned goods, homemade soups, baked pies, banana nut bread, farm cheeses and so much more! Hope to see you at market this coming Saturday. We are open all year long every Saturday in Franklin Tennessee behind the Factory. Have a great week and keep warm!
