Strawberry Jubilee 2017!

May 6, 2017 at 10:00 AM

We’re kicking-off our 2017 peak growing season with Mayor Megan Barry at the 3rd Annual Strawberry Jubilee on Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is the Nashville-area’s premiere opportunity to taste the sweetest, locally-grown Tennessee strawberries of the season, and to take home every quantity from pints to full flats for freezing, canning, ice cream-making, and, of course, plenty of snacking. Strawberry Jubilee at the Nashville Farmers’ Market will feature a free strawberry tasting table, a kids' strawberry eating contest, a strawberry cake contest, live music, food trucks, local farmers, and lots of fun for the entire family.
