The Gallatin Farmers Market is now open for the 2021 season.
The market, which held its opening day May 1, is located at 160 W. Franklin St. next to the Gallatin Police Department. It’s organized each year by the Gallatin Area Chamber of Commerce and will be open every Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. through October.
Organizers say more than 20 vendors, mostly from the Gallatin and Sumner County area, are expected to take part in the market this season.
Products available to purchase will vary each week and range from vegetables, meats, baked goods, eggs, jams, jellies, popcorn, honey and coffee, to soaps, lotions, bath salts, laundry detergent, essential oils and other handmade items.
In addition to being open every Saturday, organizers also host the Moonlight Market from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on the third Friday of each month through November.
The monthly evening shopping event at the market, now in its second year, focuses on vintage items, vinyl records and other handmade items.
In September, the chamber will also hold its first farm to table dinner in downtown Gallatin. The inaugural event will feature live music, a silent auction and a four-course meal with most of the ingredients sourced from local farmers. All proceeds from the silent auction will go towards local agriculture-related education projects, Baker said. Tickets for the Gallatin Farm to Table Dinner are expected to go on sale June 15 and will be $75 per person.
