Enjoy the Franklin Farmer's Market All Year Round

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Franklin Homes Realty LLC

When you think about a Farmer's Market winter doesn't usually come to mind. But did you know that the Franklin Farmer's Market operates year round? The winter hours are reduced from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Saturday but the quality you'll find there isn't sacrificed.

You'll find everything from produce, fruits and dairy to baked goods and meats. The best part is that the items available are all from local farms. The variety of foods change each week depending upon what's in season. It's Tennessee farm fresh foods from real farmers. You get to know your farmers as well as your foods.

Want a farm fresh meal? Head over to the Franklin Farmer's Market located behind The Factory in Franklin on the corners of Liberty Pike and Franklin Road. For additional details, contact Franklin Farmer's Market.

Hi, Tammie...you are lucky to have a farmer's market all year. Our market is only during the summer months.

Hi Tammie, Year around Farmer's Markets help insure that we all eat healthy. There is no comparison to the produce section of the grocery store. It is as much about taste as it about freshness. The local produce always seem to taste better.

There's nothing better than shopping at a farmers' market.   Buying local is the best.

 Good morning Tammie. I did not know that the Franklin farmers market was open. I know that a lot of the farmers markets in the area want to have locally produced products.

Good morning Tammie. Not anything we see in our area until it gets warmer, but when open we stop in all the time.

Make it a great week!

Tammie,

How wonderful that you have great availability of fresh produce...The stuff from the grocery stores has no taste especially when it comes to lettuce.  Have a great week.  A

Debbie - We are lucky.

Will - I imagine not with all the snow you get.

Tom - Who doesn't like a freshly made warm donut?

William - We grow our own peppers and tomatoes and you are right. They taste so much better than store bought.

Sharon - We're pretty fortunate to have such a good farmer's market so close.

Michael - Tom and I take advantage of the market all year long.

Joe - This market is a regular stop of Saturday mornings.

A - I agree.

I can't wait until the Farmer's Markets come back to my area.  This sounds wonderful.  I can see why you and Tom make this a weekly stop.

When I lived in Fairport Harbor, the Farmers Market was open all year.....I imagine it still is, even though I moved.

How nice that you can enjoy the Farmers' Market year round for fresh produce. We have them year-round here in just about every community. Such a refreshing change from New England where they lasted only a few months

YOu are so lucky to have it open all year and that it's by locals, for locals--"like a big family to us"--wonderful quote to capsulize this.
