Today was the opening day of the West Nashville Farmer’s Market located in Richland Park.
What an amazing day!
The band was playing, the sun was shining, and people were walking around with huge bags of locally grown produce.
The turnout was outstanding and the vibe from the crowd was very inspiring. There were literally hundreds of people from the local community that showed up to support the farmers and artisans. The crowd was eager to learn about their local farmers and the interesting food they had to sale. To steal the words from the market organizer, Sean Siple, this area was “hungry” for a farmers market, and boy did it show today.
It was a consistent sight to see people lined up three to four deep waiting to buy veggies. These are the kind of days that keep a farmer plugging away in the middle of August.
Thanks to the West Nashville Community for your support!
