You can taste the difference, because it all comes straight from the farm to the market, ripe and ready to enjoy. It’s Tennessee farm fresh food from real farmers, every Saturday morning at the Franklin Farmers Market. Plus, there are a select number of local crafts persons at the market too, with unique and beautiful goods for you to enjoy.
