“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” – Audrey Hepburn
Is there anything more satisfying than biting into a homegrown beefsteak tomato? No wonder the tomato is affectionately named the Official Tennessee State Fruit. You can find flavor like no other grown right here at home by shopping the weekly Cookeville Community Farmers Market.
With so many selections to choose from, you can fill up your pantry with items that will make you proud of your hometown. The Cookeville Community Farmers Market is a great place to get delicious honey, homemade breads, eggs, beef, and fresh produce all in one stop. Grab a shopping bag and fill up with all your local favorites. This tradition allows us to support others in our community while gathering up nutritious and flavorful items to enjoy throughout the week. While Saturday is their most busy day – the market is open throughout the week, except for Sunday. We can’t wait to go shopping with you.
Heads up!
