The Nashville Farmers Market has moved from its weekly drive-thru service to reopening some areas of its facility May 15 as part of Phase I of Mayor John Cooper’s plan to reopen businesses.

While some vendors at the market will remain closed until further notice, Executive Director Tasha Kennard said the market has been working to create no-contact shopping for customers and vendors and to create guidelines for social distancing.


“Everyone is adjusting the way they do business, and we remain committed to operating in a manner that protects merchants, employees and customers,” Kennard said in an announcement to customers.

The farm shed and the Gardens of Babylon areas are now open daily from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; however, the Market House will remain closed until further notice. Curbside service and preorder options will continue in designated areas.
