11 Places to buy local produce and handmade products in Nashville



If you are new to Nashville or thinking of moving down here, community is a big part out the South and certainly so in Nashville. With the popularity of moving back to the city, New urbanity dwellers are giving that community feel back to the city with many family and pet oriented festivals and events. One that I enjoy during the growing season are the neighborhood flea and farmers markets.

Davidson County alone now boast 11 neighborhood Farmers Markets. These Farmers markest usually aren’t just all about the food or products,but music,food education classes,and even yoga is taking place at these awesome Farmers Markets. Check out the one nearest where you live or are considering moving to.
