The Nashville Farmers’ Market provides retail space, promotion and training to farmers, food producers and retail entrepreneurs, and serves as a catalyst for a healthy, community–based food system.
We are located in the urban core of downtown Nashville along Rosa L Parks Boulevard, neighboring the Bicentennial Capital Mall State Park and the Tennessee State Museum, and within walking distance of the State Capital, Germantown, Jefferson Street, the Gulch and the First Tennessee Park — home of the Nashville Sounds.
