Friends, we’ve come to the last week of the Thompson’s Station Farmer’s Market for 2017! It has been a great summer full of sun, smiles, and fellowship at our market. As we approach the last market of the season on Wednesday, we've decided to take a look back at some of the highlights from the last couple months.
FIRST NIGHT MARKET(s)
We had our first ever Night Market on May 31st. We had a record breaking crowd of over 800 people on the property with live music from Tessa Victoria, Taylor Dukes, and Alicia Smith. Food trucks sold delicious dinner for the customers to enjoy while they shopped, and the property was full with picnics and families enjoying time together.
On August 2, we held our second and final Night Market of the 2017 season. We had live music from Marcus Whybrew, Tessa Victoria, and Alicia Smith. Yayo’s OMG came back out to the property to sell their tasty Mexican food to the attendees, and there were s’mores by the firepit!
The TSFM was featured in the July/August issue of Edible Nashville. The ad highlighted three vendors that we like to love on -- Olive Branch Natural Soaps, TriaHerbs, and Southern Ridge Farm!
Different food trucks joined our market throughout the summer such as 313 Coney, Yayo’s OMG, Florinda’s Food Truck, and New Hickory Food Truck.
NEW VENDORS + FAVORITES
- We had a total of 36 different local vendors participate throughout the summer. We saw products all the way from produce hot pretzels, and everything in between!
These were some of the biggest highlights from the this market season. This week we will host the last market of 2017 in the Barn at Homestead Manor. Come hungry for chicken sandwiches from New Hickory Food Truck.
Whether you are a weekly shopper at our market or haven’t had the chance to attend this summer, we want to thank you for the support. We look forward to seeing you Wednesday from 10a-2p!
