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!
