This Enormous Roadside Farmers Market Near Nashville Is Too Good To Pass Up
The Franklin Farmers Market is located just off the ever-busy Franklin Road, and it’s a must-visit if you’re a fan of locally sourced, seasonal goods. This weekly farmers market may offer up one of the best ways to come to understand Middle Tennessee’s farming community, and there are fresh fruits and veggies to boot. Does it get any better than that…? Check it out!
The Franklin Farmers Market is a local hot spot where you can purchase everything from free-range eggs to heirloom vegetables from local farms. Every visit is different!
Held every Saturday morning, it's the perfect place to find farm-to-market goods that are not only seasonal but ripe and ready to serve.
Summertime is one of our favorites seasons! The number of sweet, Tennessee-grown explodes during the summer months, perfect for fresh cakes, pies and served on their own.
You'll find a mix of farmers, bakers and artisans at the market, and there's a vendor map on the Franklin Farmers Market website that should help you navigate. After you snag your blueberries and tomatoes, maybe head over and snag homemade soap or a piece of locally made jewelry.
Ellie's Old Fashioned Doughnuts is a must-try at the market, and so are Geraldine's Greatest Chess Pies and Ace's Kettle Corn. Indulge in food and drink vendors and while shopping away your Saturday morning.
The market has been running on Saturday mornings since 2002, beginning with just eight farmers who wanted to breathe life into the local community, fostering a communal experience between both farmer and consumer.
You can visit for yourself on Saturdays, from 8 am to 1 pm. Come for fresh fare, come to support local farms, come to learn about the folks that keep Tennessee rife with produce and goods. You may just find yourself a regular.
Address: 230 Franklin Road, Franklin, TN 37064
