June 7th - The first of the Summer of ’17 peaches have arrived. Much to the delight of the many fans of The Peach Truck and their fresh-picked Georgia peaches, The Nashville Farmers’ Market welcomed family-owned business back to Farm Shed 1 the last week of May.  Currently you’ll find clingstone peaches in their signature brown paper sacks, which is what we’ll be using to demonstrate something sweet---peach pie—and something savory---Marinated Cucumber & Peach Salad. Class members will sample both recipes, hear more about when to expect peaches from Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee and leave with a bag of Peach Truck peaches to try the recipes at home!

July 5th - You say To-may-to, I say To-mah-to. However you say it, we all speak the universal language of love for summer tomatoes. Class memebers will taste all the differet varieties of tomatoes grown by our farmers and sold at the Market, and learn some simple recipes using tomatoes with other in-season produce and market product.

August 2nd - Savor Now, Save for Later. In August, our Farm Sheds overflow with tomatoes, corn, summer squash, eggplant and peas, but all good things come to an end. Learn how to extend smmer's bounty into fall and winter with easy tips for preserving, anning, and freezing.
