In the wake of opening their highly anticipated Chuck Close show, the Frist Center's Museums in the 21st Century exhibit continues to resonate with the ongoing local conversation the art community is having about architecture. Adding more fuel to the fire, the Frist turns a spotlight on itself, offering art and architecture lovers alike the chance to find out more about the history behind our beautiful downtown art facility. This is the first of three free tours the Frist will offer over the summer months, and a cash bar and live music set the mood for the after-tour discussion.

Boasting an ambience somewhere between a block party, a jam-band festival and a neighborhood yard sale, East Nashville's cozy addition to the marketplace of locally grown and produced goods proves that farmers' markets take on the specifics of their location. Having outgrown the Turnip Truck grocery's parking lot, the market now gathers nearly two dozen vendors every Wednesday selling organic vegetables, grassfed meats, artisanal breads and other homegrown/homemade goods. Vendors include Delvin Farms, West Wind Farms, Hatcher Family Dairy and newcomer Foggy Hollow Farm from Joelton; goats-milk soaps and lotions from Totty's Bend Farm; organic cotton clothing from ASK Apparel; and Moose Creek Pepper Sauce. We recommend guzzling a pint of Hatcher's chocolate milk while you wander.
