Here are three programs that help farmers achieve fair prices, broad distribution and all the respect they deserve!
Nashville Farm to Chef
Innovative Delivery Services
For local producers who may need help getting broader product distribution, the Nashville Farm to Chef program offers a partnership program that can expand sales and give you more time on the farm. Producers enjoy centralized delivery, professional product handling and weekly payments at fair-trade prices.
Good Food Farms
A Producer’s Coop
Good food is free of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, genetically modified organisms and hormones and anti-biotics. This cooperative markets food for committed producers who raise produce, cage-free laying hens, grass-fed and pasture-raised meats. Farmers willing to abide by either Organic or Naturally Grown guidelines may be eligible to join this cooperative marketing program.
West Nashville Farmers Market
From April until November, over thirty local food producers stage an outdoor farmers market in Richland Park located at Charlotte Pike and 48th Avenue. From December through March a core dozen offer a two-hour indoor event at the LOVE Building located at 4611 Alabama Avenue. If you are a local producer interested in vending at our market, please review our regulations and contact us with an inquiry.
