Nashville Area Farmers’ Market Openings 2018

April showers bring May flowers…  and fruits and vegetables! For many of us, farmers markets are a summertime tradition, and opening day is highly anticipated each year. Neighborhood farmers markets provide a more relaxed way of shopping for food, crafts and other items, and a place where we can meet up with friends and get to know our local farmers and artisans.  Many of the markets even have food trucks and live music, so shopping becomes more fun and less of a chore.  While most of the Middle Tennessee farmers markets are set to open in May, the Old Hickory Village Farmers Market and the Gallatin Farmers Market opened in April, and the Franklin Farmers Market and the Nashville Farmers Market remain open year-round.

Here’s a list of opening days you can look forward to in May:

The Nashville Farmers Market, which has been in business since the early 1800s, has grown over the years and now covers 16 acres of urban land!  In addition to the daily market with local farmers, artisans and other merchants, there are numerous restaurants, a weekend flea market, and frequent special events such as cooking demonstrations and classes.  And if you love fresh strawberries, you don’t want to miss the 4th Annual Strawberry Jubilee on May 5th!  The Nashville Farmers Market also hosts a monthly Night Market on the third Friday of each month, offering folks a chance to shop, eat, drink and listen to live music.

About the Author

My wife and I live in Donelson, where we both were raised and graduated from high school (DCA Classes of 1983 and 1984).  Our current home is on the Cumberland River, very close to my childhood home and the former homes of both my McDonald and Rice grandparents.

Our daughter and son are grown now, and our daughter, Stephanie Miller, is my real estate partner.  She lives in Lebanon with her husband and their two children.  While Stephanie and I specialize in the areas of Downtown Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, we have and do serve clients all over Middle Tennessee.

As a Nashville native, I’ve spent a lifetime watching our city evolve, and I am enthusiastic about showcasing it to others and serving their real estate needs.
