About Us


FMMission Statement:  We believe that knowing your food means knowing your farmer.  We champion healthy food and healthy communities by providing a place for everyone to support, enjoy and learn about fresh, locally grown food, local music, cuisine and arts.

Make the HipD Farmers Market your Friday destination for shopping, fun, food and friendly folks.  It’s THE place to be and be seen starting your weekend with live entertainment and meeting friends for dinner.  The market will feature food trucks as well as booths from local restaurants offering meals or snacks.

This year we have a great new location on the corner of Lebanon Road and Old Lebanon Road just west of Donelson Pike at 2730 Lebanon Road. We are within walking distance of several wonderful restaurants, banks, retailers and Ace Hardware, of course. We have lots more room, plenty of parking and are steps from the train and the bus.  We’re still the only farmers market in Nashville accessible by bus and train.

Our all volunteer staff is on hand to help with information, assisting with SNAP purchase, getting you outfitted with the latest in cool Hip Donelson gear and making your Market experience fun and memorable. Come see us at the Hip Donelson information booth!

When asked what was needed in our community, Hip Donelson responded “we want a farmers market”!  An enthusiastic group of volunteers met to make this dream come true and the Hip Donelson Farmers Market opened mid summer 2012.  The market was an immediate success and continues to grow and improve.  We are now proud members of TN Association of Farmers Markets and The  Farmers Market Coalition.

Ours is a producers-only market and our vendors come from within 150 miles of Donelson so you are guaranteed locally grown and made products.   The produce sold was growing in the fields earlier in the day–you have to get up pretty early in the morning to find fresher fruits and vegetables!  Our value-added and artisan products are also locally produced; shopping at our market supports healthy people and a healthy, resilient community!

We’d love to see you at our market, so please join us on Fridays May 9th – October 31st, from 4-7pm.
