When asked what was needed in our community, Hip Donelson responded, “We want a farmers market!” An enthusiastic group of volunteers began planning to make this dream come true, and the Hip Donelson Farmers Market opened mid-summer 2012. The Market was an immediate success and continues to grow and improve. We are now proud members of the TN Association of Farmers Markets and The Farmers Market Coalition.
In 2018, the Market will be moving to the grounds of Two Rivers Mansion, a beautiful park-like setting and historic venue. Centrally located and close to Briley Parkway, the market will also be accessible via the Greenways in Two Rivers Park.
Our all-volunteer staff is on hand and ready to assist you with your SNAP tokens purchase, outfit you with the latest in cool Hip Donelson gear, and help make your Market experience a fun and memorable one. So come see us at the Hip Donelson information booth!
Ours is a producers-only Market, and all our vendors come from within 150 miles of Donelson, so you are guaranteed locally grown and made products. The produce being sold was still growing in the fields earlier in the day–you have to get up pretty early in the morning to find fresher fruits and vegetables! Our value-added and artisan products are also locally produced; shopping at our Market supports healthy people and a healthy, resilient community!
We’d love to see you at our market, so please join us on Fridays May-October, from 4-7pm.
