West Nashville Farmers Market Saturday (Sept. 12)

You may have noticed by now that the West Nashville Farmers Market has quickly become very popular since its inception last month. Here's what you can expect to see if you stop by tomorrow between 9 a.m. and noon:
Every week you keep surprising and amazing us with your enthusiasm, energy, and turnout!! And, we are excited to continue to host the talented people in our community who want to bring you the best food, greatest entertainment and dazzling hand-made crafts.

Did anyone notice that we have mums at the market. Jon Clarke is a great little grower just north of Nashville and he really brings it to the market. He said "The first week you come to a market they just look at you, but by the third week they are looking for you!" Please stop by and take some of his reasonably priced, spectacular potted plants home while they last. He will be done with his mum season in a few weeks.

We are pleased to welcome a new beef producer to our line-up. Danny Roller, operator of Barton Creek Farms, will be there with a broad selection of grain finished, marbled beef. He will be set up in a mobile unit next to the tents. This now makes two local meat producers since Peaceful Pastures made their debut last week and will be with us every other week.

Delvin Farms and Foggy Hollow Farm will be back with a broad variety of autumn squashes, carrots, and the large seasonal flushes of shiitake mushrooms. You can also plan on seeing Miel Garden, McDonalds Farm, Green Door Gourmet and the gardeners from St. John's. Nashville Farm to Chef will be back with a table full of field fresh food from Turnbull Creek (arugula), Smiley's (sweet corn), Swafford Farms(maters and peppers) and Jehovah's Providence (watermelon)!

Provence Breads returns to the market to bring their amazing artisan breads made right here the heart of Nashville. Because you are making this market so successful, quality local businesses are flocking to be with us on Saturday. Your support makes it possible for Good Food for Good People to expand this market so that for some it can be true one-stop-shopping!

Organizers have also decided to continue to provide market space for local practitioners of holistic care. This week you are encouraged to visit masseuse Linda Nunn from Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Massage, who will once again be offering chair massages.

This weeks coffee stand is brought to you by Wild Muffin, offering their yummy baked goods, hot coffee and cool lemonade. So, grab breakfast at the market, y'all! Come out, listen to some locally brewed tunes and please tell your friends and family about us. See you Saturday!
