During this Coronavirus pandemic, we at the Franklin Farmers Market have had to evaluate the best way to keep our customers safe while providing fresh, local food to our community. We care about the health of our customers and supporting our family farms and small businesses. We will remain open on Saturdays from 9am-12pm in order to provide our community with locally grown produce, meats, milk, cheese, eggs, breads, prepared foods and so many of the other foods you’ve come to enjoy and depend on. Our farmers market is in an open-air environment with plenty of air movement. In addition, we are increasing the space between each vendor. We will have hand sanitizing wipes at the information booth and at each vendor booth.
The Franklin Farmers Market is a safe source for our customers to secure healthy, fresh food for their families. Our farmers are continuing to work hard to harvest, wash and deliver produce, and our food vendors are cooking and baking extra for families to have nourishing, healthy food choices, direct from our farmers and bakers.
The Franklin Farmers Market is the perfect place to stock up on healthy, organic vegetables. This time of year, customers can expect leafy greens such as lettuces, spinach, kale, collards, swiss chard, turnip greens and bok choy, along with carrots, beets, turnips, radishes, sweet potatoes, onions and garlic. Our food vendors will also have baked breads, donuts, gluten free prepared food, cobblers, pies, quiches, biscuits, pretzels, cheese spreads, crackers, cookies, muffins, soups, elderberry syrup, bone broth, canned goods including tomatoes, peppers, jams and jellies. Our farmers will have milk, cheese curds, cheddar cheese, goat cheese, goat milk, eggs, beef, lamb, chicken and pork and so much more!
In addition to securing safe, healthy food at the Franklin Farmers Market, our customers can find soaps, natural hand sanitizers, CBD products, lotions, powders and essential oils. Our artisans will have artwork, dog collars, dog treats, t-shirts, knit hats and more!
When it comes to being able to find healthy food, look no further than the Franklin Farmers Market. Our food has traveled less than 50 miles from the time of harvest or baking to delivery at the market. Very few people have handled the food that is locally grown or baked for our farmers market, and our vendors are required to practice safe food handling as mandated by the TN Department of Agriculture and FDA. Thank you for your continued support these past 18 years! We hope that you will continue to support our local farmers who are growing food for you and our community and we take pride in being able to serve you, our loyal farmers market customers.
