Franklin Farmers Market

This place is one of the things I love about Tennessee.  There are farms EVERYWHERE, and they are AWESOME!
Sure……we have farms and farmers markets in Long Island, and of course the the popular Union Square Farmer’s Market in NYC, but Franklin’s Farmers Market is year round and chock full of organic Farms and goodies. Not too big, not too small.

Ome thing I noticed about the CSA shares here compared to the one I had in NY, they’re bigger.

When we first moved here, I signed up for a full fall share with Delvin Farms. OMG!  It was too much!  Since it’s just me and my husband that eat most of the veggies, we could not keep up with the share.  So, the following spring I got a half share with Flying S Farms. That was still too much for us. So this year, I signed up for a quarter share. It’s the perfect amount for me and hubby. No waste and no giving away.

On this beautiful Saturday morning, me and my youngest went to the market to get breakfast and pick up our share.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast at the Crepe A Diem food truck. I had a breakfast bowl of cheese grits, sausage patty and a fried egg. All local farm ingredients. Shaun had a BEC, a crepe filled with Applewood bacon, eggs and cheese with a hash brown on the side. It was soooooo good!

We washed it down with lemonade from Belle Springs Lemonade. Made right in front of you with market fresh, seasonal ingredients.  You have a choice of the Classic or the Market.  The Classic, as the name implies, is a classic lemonade with your choice of sweetener. The Market is lemonade with your choice of seasonal ingredients.

Shaun had a Classic made with organic cane sugar, and mine was a Market with cranberries, Thai purple basil and ginger with stevia. Unbelievably delicious!

You also get a frequent flyer card. A free lemonade after your you purchase 10. With all of the health benefits of lemons, HEALTH HERE I COME!

It was such a beautiful day. 70 degrees with bright blue skies. We really enjoyed eating breakfast at the picnic table area and listening to live music.  This market truly is an enjoyable experience. A must do when in Tennessee 🙂
