Nashville Farmers Markets are Back!

With Spring in full bloom and here to stay (finally), that could only mean the return of  the numerous Nashville Farmer's Markets all over the city.  Supporting local farmers and getting healthy and delicious farm to table vegetables, beef, cheese and more is a growing Nashville trend.  A few years ago there were only a couple of farmers markets and their size and choices weren't very large.  In 2013, we have numerous options and they continue to grow every year.  They've grown in such popularity that we even have a Nashville Farmers Market Night Market! So we've added them to the ACTIVE Calendar, but wanted to kick off the season in style by giving you an overview of several big one's around town.

Ingredients

  • Navel orange
  • fresh fruit salad

Instructions

  1. To make one lantern, use a small knife to slice the top off a navel orange and cut around its interior to hollow it out. Scoop out the orange segments, chop them, and mix them with fresh fruit salad.
  2. Carve small facial features in one side of the orange, then cut a slit in the lid to accommodate the handle of a green plastic spoon. Fill the lantern with fruit salad. Insert the spoon and set the lid in place.
