The Nolensville Farmers Market will open the 2020 season on April 25 and run every Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon until Thanksgiving.
Located at the Historic Nolensville School in Nolensville, the market will take on a new way of doing business this year.
Like most farmers markets all over the country, the Nolensville Farmers Market is taking temporary measures while social distancing is in place and changing its market flow to a drive-thru farmers market. Customers can pre order goods from a list of vendors that are participating from the comfort of their home, and then remain in their vehicles to drive thru and pick up their orders and maybe grab a few extra items.
Packed with fresh produce, meat, eggs, baked goods and more, the vendors of the Nolensville Farmers Market serve Nolensville and the surrounding area with access to fresh, local foods. Find a list of vendors accepting pre orders at www.nolensvillefarmersmarket.com/drive-thru-market and a weekly list of vendors posted on Facebook @nolensvillefarmersmarket and Instagram @nolensvillefm.
Shopping local is a great, low-contact, safe way to get groceries. Compared to grocery stores, products found at Farmers Markets have had much less handling than those being stocked on grocery store’s shelves.
Farmers markets are included in the list of essential businesses of retail outlets for food purchases.
“We cannot express enough our gratitude to our local, state and federal officials in recognizing that farmers markets are an essential food resource for our communities,” the Nolensville Farmers Market said in a news release. “Now more than ever, we see the importance of our local food systems through the work our farmers are doing to keep us nourished and healthy.”
The Nolensville Farmers Market team and vendors hope to get back to normal market business as soon as it’s deemed safe to do so. In the meantime, consider supporting local food outlets and restaurants.
