Woodbine Farmers Market Grand Opening
This Saturday May 14th from 9-12
The Woodbine Farmers Market is back for its second season. After a successful first season, it has proved to be a sustainable event for the South Nashville neighborhood known as a food desert. The Market has changed from Tuesdays, to Saturdays from 9am to 12pm outside the Coleman Park Community Center at the intersection of Nolensville Pike and Thompson Lane. This weekend will be the grand opening for the Market starting at 9am.
The Grand Opening will feature several special events throughout the morning. Together with Vanderbilt’s South Nashville Family Resource Center and CASTLES Program, a free teaching kitchen will take place. Chef Carlos Davis, from Riffs Fine Street Food- Food Truck will be teaching the demo featuring a seasonal menu with local produce and meats from the Market. The first 25 people to pre-register will receive a $5 gift certificate to the Woodbine Farmers Market. There will be 2 demonstrations, one at 9:45am and the other at 10:45am inside the Community Center. In addition to the teaching kitchen, musician Robby Hecht will be performing live starting at 10am. There will also be a bilingual story time in both English and Spanish that begins at 11am.
The Market will be run by Good Food for Good People’s Mary Crimmins who founded the Woodbine Farmers Market last season, as well as local Woodbine resident Cindy Murphy. The Market will boast local produce, local meats, local cheeses, locally roasted coffee, local pies, and much more!
