The Rutherford County Farmers Market is set to reopen for the season on Friday, May 13! The producer-only farmers market is located in the indoor/open air Community Center at the Lane Agri-Park (315 John Rice Boulevard #101, Murfreesboro).
The market will be open from the second Friday in May through the last Friday of October between 7 a.m. and 12 noon every Tuesday and Friday. Market vendors hail from over 15 Middle Tennessee counties and sell a wide variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, baked and canned goods, flowers, plants and more.
At the market, customers can pay with cash, credit, debit, and even use their SNAP/EBT benefit card. WIC vouchers are also accepted by participating vendors in July and August.
In addition to providing a great place for local farms to sell their products, the Rutherford County Farmers Market also offers “Come & Go” informative sessions to the general public every market-day between 9 and 11 a.m. in the lobby. Topics range from sustainable gardening, cooking, food preservation, to environmental education. The Master Gardeners of Rutherford County are available between 9 a.m. and Noon in the demonstration garden for questions and tours.
