Even if you’re not attending the Southern Ground Music & Food Festival, you can still find others ways to get your nosh on in Nashville and Middle Tennessee this weekend. Tonight at the Night Market, the Nashville Farmers’ Market will host a feast of farm specials as well as dinner and snack options from its restaurants and vendors.
Let me start by apologizing to the rest of the lunch crowd at the Nashville Farmers’ Market trying to elbow into the queue by the glowing pizza oven at Bella Nashville. I was the one in front of you, ordering a half-dozen pizzas and as many hand-crafted sodas and then changing my mind to add another few drinks and another pizza or so. And then, when the pint-sized posse I had in tow ate more hummus and vegetables — disguised cleverly as pizza — than I can usually convince them to eat in a fortnight, that was me again, getting back in line and jamming up the works with another round of orders.
The husband-and-wife duo behind this bakery overhauled their home kitchen into a commercial space to keep Nashville-area residents enjoying their cakes, breads and cookies. Look for The Sweet Stash at the Nashville Farmers Market. The Mays also make deliveries on orders when requested.

In fact, they’ve pretty much turned their Franklin, Tenn. home into one with the start of their new business The Sweet Stash, baking cupcakes, truffles and other dessert confections.
In the light of a tragedy like the Nashville Flood, it might seem silly to get worked up, worried and emotional about the place where you buy groceries. But for those of us who do our shopping at the Nashville Farmers’ Market, there’s a bond between buyer and purveyor you won’t likely find…
