Richland Park Market Fest May 21

Save the date for the Richland Park Market Fest set for Saturday, May 21, from 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. at the Richland Creek Farmers’ Market (4711 Charlotte Pike).

This Spring marks the reemergence of the neighborhood’s Farmers’ Markets in one united location. Beginning May 7, the West End Farmers’ Market at Vine Street will rejoin the Richland Creek Farmers’ Market at Richland Park at the corner of 46th Ave and Charlotte Pike in Sylvan Park.

To celebrate the occasion, a festival is planned for Saturday, May 21, the official opening day of the market: The Richland Park Market Fest. “It's time the west side of Nashville had annual event like this,” said Lari White Cannon, an organizer of the Fest. “This is our chance to spread the word that the market is bigger, better, and more beautiful than ever.”

The market will regularly host 30 to 40 vendors. For the Richland Park Market Fest, another 20 are set to join, ranging from artisans to area restaurants to the Friends of the Richland Park Library. Live music, beer, and kid-friendly activities are also planned. Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association and Native Magazine are signed up as the official sponsors, and Regions Bank will give away two of their famous green bikes. Other local businesses will also have sponsorship opportunities.

“There’s so much community support for the event,” Cannon said. “It highlights the strong heart and unique spirit of West Nashville. We’ve always known our neighborhood is the best. Now we’re getting to celebrate it officially.”
