I’m so excited to let everyone know about our first ever Local Table Holiday Guide – it’s a gift catalog of local vendors selling items for the holidays. We have so many talented, passionate and creative individuals and families doing such wonderful work in our area. We’ve got farmers who do value added products such as soaps, body care items, CSA gift certificates, artisan producers creating cheese, sausages, coffees, sauces, preserves, and much more. And, if you need some help with your holiday meals, there are bread makers, bakers and cooks galore to help you serve the best holiday meal ever. Some of our most unique and quality crafts folks are also included. Please support our local vendors and consider making your holiday gift giving a local thing!
Too much stuff in the world, think about giving to two of our favorite community organizations, WCTE-TV and The Land Trust for Tennessee. Both groups working to help preserve our farmland and support our local farmers. A small gift to The Land Trust will help keep our state ‘green’.
Also, don’t forget the good works and beautiful products from Thistle Farms – one of Nashville’s most successful community organizations.
The new Local Table Holiday Gift Guide has been made possible with help from the Nashville Farmers Market and in conjunction with the guide, we’re going to do a Holiday Bazaar on Sat, Dec. 3rd at the Market. It will be from 5:30 – 8:30 and include Holiday Guide vendors and Markethouse favorites. It will be similar to a Night Market with wine, beer, music and more! I know it’s a busy time of the year, but mark this one on your calendar for a great night of local food and gifts!
And, it wouldn’t be Local Table without a guide to seasonal farms – so it can only mean Christmas trees! Make a trip to a local Christmas tree farm for not only your tree, but all your holiday greenery and many farms also carry ornaments and other decorating items.
