NIGHT MARKET
Friday, October 19th 6:30pm 
Greetings!

We'll just admit it--October Night Market's are our favorite.  This one marks the 2 year anniversary of our first Night Market in 2010.  We still vividly remember hanging lights, putting together pumpkin displays, assuring farmers, artisans, restaurants, & merchants that we'd have fun together even if no one came.  However--come you did.  In droves.  The look on your faces-watching you delight in NFM at night--experiencing novel ways to shop (while you sip & sample!),  make new friends, discover local favorites, share recipes, dance to music, try new tastes & much more. We've loved... watching you love it!  

It's been quite a two years and it simply couldn't have happened without you.  So join us for this last one of 2012 & let's raise a glass (a squash, a fork-whatever you like!) to a great season growing local together & all things Nashville!
 
Sincerely,
Nashville Farmers' Market
