The Belle Meade Plantation's Farmers' Market returns 

No Kidding

No Kidding

Maybe you can resist wild honey made from the bees-in-residence at Gardner Groves, the springwater irrigated family farm established in 1853 that's featured at the Belle Meade Plantation's weekly farmers' market (Thursdays, 1-6 p.m.), one of six such bounties now offered around town. Maybe white radishes and Swiss chard aren't your thing. Maybe grass-fed meats don't float your boat, maybe free-range eggs don't make your heart skip a beat, and maybe freshly ground cornmeal doesn't warm your cockles. But try resisting Gizmo the Goat, the plantation's newest hire, a hand puppet who hawks the health benefits of local, fresh goat cheese. Less fat! Lower cholesterol! More protein! Easier to digest! Sounds like an ideal treat for the little ones, though we hear it's hard to have a conversation with a goat — they're always butting in. (Yuk-yuk.)
