The Farmer’s Market at the Crossings is rebranding to the Southeast Nashville Farmer’s Market.

With the rebranding comes some notable changes in the market. Rather than battling other Farmer’s Markets in the area on Saturday mornings, the Southeast Nashville Farmer’s Market will be held on Monday evenings from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. It will open June 6 and run through September 26 every Monday except July 4.

The market will still be held in the park/greenspace outside the Southeast Branch Library and Southeast Community Center.

Vendors who can help support a marketplace of “handmade, homemade, and homegrown products in Antioch.” The vendor fee is $10 per week, plus $5 for every $100 in sales made. The vendor form may be found at this link.

Organizer Molly Martin is also looking for volunteers to help with a wide range of aspects related to the market. Those who are interested should email [email protected]

According to a survey conducted by Farmer’s Market organizers, 90 percent of respondents stated they believed the need for a Farmer’s Market exists in Antioch.
