Brown County VIllage Market - NEW LOCATION!

It's time again for Saturday farmers market in Nashville! This year the Brown County Historical Society is allowing the market to use the lumber building that was part of the old True Value Hardware (between E. Gould and E. Mound Streets). This is a great location. Now we can hold the market even it it rains. :)
It wasn't the prettiest space when we started out, but Brian and I have been painting a big farm mural on the old cement block walls to brighten things up.
This Saturday will be our 3rd Saturday at market. Due to the really, really wet weather we've been having there aren't a whole lot of veggies available yet. We've been taking herb plants, lamb, persimmon pulp and free range eggs. And we've been taking orders for our pasture finished broilers and holiday turkeys. We'll be processing chickens this week so we hope to have fresh frozen broilers available at market this weekend.
We are also looking for musicians to play on market days. We don't have a budget to pay musicians but we are offering a booth space to set up and the opportunity to "pass the hat".
It's good exposure and a fun place to play. If you know someone who is interested in performing please have them call Brian (he's the Market Master) at 812-521-1063 to reserve a Saturday space!
We're also saving one space per week for not-for-profit groups to use for fundraisers/information booth. If you know a not-for-profit group that would like to use this free space have them call Brian to reserve a Saturday.
