Inside on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, stalwart vendors offer their winter wares and seasonless specialties. Traffic is very brisk for the red-heart radishes from Bells Bend Farm, the lacinato kale from Green Market Farm and little hakerei, or Japanese turnips, from Foggy Hollow that are so sweet you can eat them raw.
Lacinato, or Tuscan kale, can be served toasted and crispy like chips, according to this fascinating recipe from Bon Appétit.
The Green Market Farm says the cone-shaped Caraflex cabbage is a favorite of the local chefs, so I got one of these amusing beauties.
See the full roster of vendors here, and find their West Nashville Farmers Market Facebook page for occasional updates. Or take the casual approach: just go to the Love Building on Saturday morning.
