In 2002, eight farmers came together to create the Franklin Farmers Market, a 501(c)(5) non-profit agricultural organization with the mission to keep Tennessee’s beautiful farmlands green and growing. The FFM provides a connection between farmers and the public to create a partnership that assures a more sustainable future for everyone.

The Franklin Farmers Market delivers a reliable means for local farms to stay productive and profitable. Farmland that is productive is less likely to disappear into urban sprawl or development.

With a large base of loyal customers, the Franklin Farmers Market has grown from a summer-only marketplace to a year-round operation and the number of farms participating in the market each year has increased from 8 to over 70 farms.

The Franklin Farmers Market works to support a diversified, sustainable agriculture system by operating with three main goals:

  • Keep local family farms productive and profitable by providing a reliable venue for farmers to sell what they grow or produce. By doing that, the market strengthens and builds financial sustainability for both farmers and the local economy.
  • Give the public easy access to healthy, locally-grown fresh food. All vegetables and fruits; meats, dairy and herbs at the Franklin Farmers Market come from local farms.
  • Educate the public about the positive impact that farming has on their community’s health, economy, aesthetic values and the environment.

Fresh picked produce every Saturday of the year!
