Go local!!

Our good friends at Bramble Hill Farm have, along with a few other local family farms, begun an organic farmer's market in Northern Davidson County and it opens Saturday June 2!!

Pictured above is Ziggy with the Bramble Hill boys, and all the market info from their mama is below.

Greetings Fresh Food Enthusiasts!

I am very pleased to announce the opening of the White's Creek Organic Farmers Market.

WHAT: A New Organic Farmers Market in North Davidson County, starting this summer


WHERE: Earthman General Store, 4409 Whites Creek Pike, Whites Creek, TN 37189

FEATURING: Fresh, organic produce from these local farms: Eaton's Creek Organics (Joelton), Hungry Gnome Farm (Whites Creek), Sonfarm (Joelton), Bramble Hill Farm (Goodlettsville).

Mark your calendars, it's just a little more than a week away. Our first market we'll be offering a variety of early season produce, including: lettuce and various greens, fresh herbs, beets, turnips and other root vegetables, onions, squash and other surprises as the weather allows. As the Spring has been dry, we are all hoping for lots of rain in the near future!

Earthman General Store is located just south of the intersection of White's Creek Pike and Old Hickory Boulevard just 15 minutes from Downtown Nashville. You can get there by taking I-24 to the Old Hickory exit (go west to the 1st stop light, which is White's Creek and take a left- store will be on your left) or take Briley Parkway to the White's Creek exit and go North on White's Creek (the store will be on your right just before the Old Hickory intersection). The market will be in the lawn next to the store. For more specific directions, just e-mail me or call and I'll be glad to help.
Also, note that Earthman General Store just opened this past week and I encourage all of you to check out this beautiful historic building that features a lunch menu, various crafts and antiques and houses the office of a local newspaper. The grand opening of the store will be on Friday June 1.

The four farms (above named) involved in this market are also in the planning stages of forming a future cooperative - maybe a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) of sorts, or a weekly order opportunity for subscribed customers. Please give us your opinion and tell us what you would like to see.

PLEASE forward this information to anyone and everyone that might be interested in the market or a future cooperative. I will be sending out updates regularly and am happy to add anyone to my e-mail list who is interested. If you are not interested in recieving these e-mails please reply with "unsubscribe" in the message.

We're looking forward to a great season and hope to see you at the market!
Thank You,
