Richland Green Festival on Saturday (Sept. 19)

From the West Nashville Farmers Market:
The West Nashville Farmer’s Market will host the Richland Green Festival this Saturday, September 19, from 9 a.m. to noon. Local environmentally friendly businesses and nonprofits will be on hand to offer demonstrations and provide information about how their programs impact the ecological health of our community. There will be exhibits staged by The Green Wagon, Kilowatt Ours, Rain Barrel Systems and Green Driving Solutions will be on hand to answer questions and provide information to market-goers.

Sean Siple of Good Food for Good People explained, “It is a natural fit for our farmers market to place the spotlight on the environmental leadership of our community. Local food, clean agricultural practices and far reaching resource management embody the spirit of our little local market. We are here each week because we are trying to assure our children that they too will have their place in the sun.”

The market just had its one-month anniversary last Saturday and will continue to be open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon until the end of October or beginning of November. The West Nashville Farmers Market features live music, local food and activities for children of all ages, including face painting this weekend. The market is located at the corner of 46th and Park Avenue beside the Richland Park Library.

The farmers who will be at the market this week include Foggy Hollow Farm, Nashville Farm to Chef, McDonald Farms, Delvin Farms, Green Door Gourmet, Jon Clarke’s mums, Peaceful Pastures, and Paul Kidd’s Paradise Honey. Also participating in the market are Miel Restaurant, The Green Wagon, Angelight, Provence Breads and Lucy’s Cheesecake.
Residents and local vendors interested in partnering with the new market can call Sean Siple at (615) 585-1294 or email him at sean@westnashvillefarmersmarket.org.
