The Woodbine Farmers Market will not be open for the 2012 season. Unfortunately, the Market did not have enough regular customers last season to feasibly maintain a full season Market this year. “As we look into the future, we are hopeful that the Market will be able to re-open with great community support as early as next year” says Market Manager Mary Crimmins.
“With our ever changing neighborhood, including a new coffee shop, The Woodbine Coffee Co. going in on Nolensville Pike, the Omni Hotel going in just a couple miles down the road and a strong Woodbine Neighborhood Association we are positive that Woodbine will continue to become a desired neighborhood to live, work and play in.” says Crimmins. The hope is that even by next year, the demand for seasonal and local food will grow and they can bring the Farmers Market back to Coleman Park.
In the meantime, you can visit their sister Market, The 12 South Farmers Market at Sevier Park on Tuesday afternoons 3:30-6:30pm starting May 8th and running through November. Just a few miles away, the 12 South Farmers Market is a vibrant Market entering its second season with local produce, meat, baked goods, milk, cheeses, honey, raw and vegan prepared foods, fresh pressed juice, food trucks and so much more. “We hope you will continue to support your local farmers and vendors in Nashville each Tuesday of the 2012 Market Season at the 12 South Market, and we look forward to serving Woodbine again in the future,” says Crimmins.
