“saturday morning, nashville farmer’s market”

Saturday morning treat yourself & your family, by going to the downtown Nashville Farmer’s Market on Rosa Parks Blvd. As many other farmer’s markets across the country have done, our downtown market has been going through a wonderful transformation over the past few seasons. Artisan cheeses, local organic milk & eggs, fresh-baked goods, meats with no additives, hand-crafted all-natural soaps &  fresh garden flowers are sold along with produce vendors selling local strawberries, greens, beets & local honey & jams. The market is a destination place for anyone who loves good, locally produced foods & a lively market environment. The prices are good, the quality fantastic & no piped in Muzak!

The greatest service which can be rendered any country is to add a useful plant to its culture.

  1. I love fresh milk in a bottle more than almost anything. Except maybe cheese. But it’s a tie. Have you tried mixing honey, olive oil and lemon together and drizzling it over fresh cheese (like ricotta or queso fresco or ricotta salata?) Or just using it as salad dressing? Or for dipping bread?

    1. No Nancy I have not done that delicious sounding but simple “dressing” for fresh cheeses, but will do so this weekend and let you know how I like it. It sounds very delicious…and I do love ricotta salata…and dipping bread. Thanks for the tip.

  2. This all is very inspiring, we all have to go to the Farmers Market more often, thank you the pictures are jummy
