Our Story

The Nashville Indiana Farmer's Market was launched in Spring of 2017. Information regarding paperwork, applications, contracts, etc. can be found here on our website.

Market takes place every Sunday 11AM-2PM, May- October. It is located in the parking lot of the Brown County Inn (St Rd. 46) in beautiful Nashville, Indiana. (47448) * ALWAYS SEEKING NEW VENDORS - PLEASE APPLY! *

Our story is really about people coming together to fill certain niches in the community in relationship to food (accessibility, nutrition, an outlet for local goods to be sold, etc.) Though it has only been 2 short years, we can see that along with this comes a food culture and food community!

Please join us as we grow. The market can not be without the community’s support and backing. So, we ask of you: Please help us integrate this market in to the community. We welcome ideas, input, vendors, collaborations, etc.

A little history and information about our market:

  • This market stemmed from a round table discussion that SEED Brown County was hosting in Nashville/Brown County. The topic for the evening was local food security, seeds, etc. The consensus in the room was that another market was needed in the county.

  • A local foodie named Elizabeth stepped up and started this market.

  • The Brown County Inn graciously donates their space to be used for this market’s purpose and was instrumental in starting this market. The Brown County Community Foundation has funded this project for two years and helped it along to get the ball rolling, though if the market grows at a sustainable rate, the hope is that it will be able to support itself.

  • Between the end of the 2017 and the start of the 2018 season a committee of volunteers came together in dedication to see this market work.

  • The market relaunched in 2018 with a new market manager, myself. My name is Torrie Rae and I have a background in local food systems. I am obsessed with seeds, and a passion for all things local food economy driven. I see food as a direct link to culture, environment, self, and community. We all eat. I am Brown County’s local food and seed cheerleader. :)
