The Nashville Farmers' Market has been a vital part of Nashville life since its inception in the early 1800s.
Today, the market features homegrown, locally sourced and sustainable products from artisans and crafters, farmers and flea merchants, restaurateurs, and shop-owners throughout the year. Two vast covered farm sheds display farm-fresh items from ranchers, dairies, cheese-makers, and vegetable farmers, with a variety of seasonal produce available according to the season.
The indoor Market House is where the fresh produce turns into delicious cuisine: here you will find sixteen restaurants, cafés, stalls, and vendors selling every type of food from pizza to tacos to barbecue. Market-goers can find local and regional craft brews at the Picnic Tap and Batch Nashville, while the bakers at Village Bakery & Provisions make fresh bread to take home.
Nashville Farmers Market’s Craft & Flea Shed is open on Friday and Sunday only, and offers a wealth of handcrafted, vintage and upcycled items, as well as local and international street foods. If you are wondering what to do in what to do in Nashville with kids on a sunny day, this is a great place to visit.
