Re: “Nashville Farmers' Market faces momentous change as community markets grow and thrive

I liked the idea of being able to go to the NFM and buy produce and fruits during the winter, no matter the source. It's great to support the local farmers though, and at times this market (as well as all the surrounding ones) will be inundated with vendors and produce, but be prepared - under this policy it will be cyclical in nature (ie when local peaches are in, every market will have them, but when they're out, so will be NFM).

I like the 'Boro market too, but please note that the Saturday market on the square does not open for this season until June 6!

The Farmers market in the Boro is also a great one! A little far out, but Nashville is a commuting city

Kingston Springs has a Farmers Market, and this Saturday is the first one, from 8 am to noon. Produce grown right down the road, fabulous handmade goods, natural products for home and personal care. It's just one exit past McCrory Lane; directions and info at www.ksfarmersmarket.org and www.facebook.com/ksfarmersmarket

Re: “Nashville Farmers' Market faces momentous change as community markets grow and thrive

Don't forget about the Thompson’s Station Farmers Market (technically in Williamson County)! They partnered with Homestead Manor this year, a coming-soon hospitality property with a restaurant, farm, orchard and newly built event barn--which is where the market will be housed. The market will feature around 20 vendors. Their soft opening is May 27 and will be open every Wednesday following through October 14.

Location: 4683 Columbia Pike
Time: Wednesdays 11:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Re: “Nashville Farmers' Market faces momentous change as community markets grow and thrive

Why is the Nashville Farmers' Market having a Juicy June theme for peaches when Tennessee peaches come in July? Juicy July would have been very appropriate. Sure, there will be plenty of South Carolina and Georgia peaches, but that doesn't support local farmers, which I thought was supposed to be a big part of these changes.

Re: “Nashville Farmers' Market faces momentous change as community markets grow and thrive

I have some sage advice (pun intended) for some of you monied young uns': Buy up whats left of the open space in Cheatham County and start more farms. We can no longer rely on California, or any mega farm operations to be able to provide. And let's not forget why there are 13 other farmers markets: the bulk of them were spawned by the unwelcome response of the resellers at the NFM. To try and sell there as a small farm was an intimidating experience. The resellers were like a gang of thugs. Now that they are gone, you know who your farmer is.

I don't believe scavendish, diatribean. I thought that was implied in my last comment. At best, they've got a white guy on at lunch so they can say they have a white guy. This place is like stepping back into the antebellum south. It's not done by mistake.

"These are the guys who build convention centers, make sure the legislature doesn't do anything TOO stupid, and keep the city's climate business-friendly."

Not doing a very good job with the second one on the list, are they?

Nothing like being told you are wrong and doubling-down.

My, how the times have changed. I'm sure it's a veritable showcase for Dr. King's dream. It certainly was true at one time, I saw it with my own eyes.
I would like to verify Mr. Cavendish's claim, but I don't really care enough about eating there. I'm sure I won't be missed.

My wife ate a filet there while in labor, we took the key lime pie to go. It certainly fortified her well for the ensuing festivities.

My waiter was white, John.

There's a reason it went without mentioning: It's not true.

I had a white, woman waitress the last time I was there.

You must be thinking of McDonalds, John.

Re: “Long a hub for who's-who elbow-rubbing, Jimmy Kelly's retains the charm of a bygone era

One of the charms not mentioned in the article is the all black waitstaff. Watching entitled, fat cats being served by African Americans in black tie takes you back to halcyon days when race relations were simpler, easier. Paula Dean said an all black waitstaff in black tie represents "...a certain era..." in American dining. Very glamorous.
Maybe things have changed since I was there, but I doubt it. Places like that never change. They are timeless.
