Project Description

 

12sfm-logo

The 12 South Farmers Market is a producer-only seasonal market held on Tuesdays from May to October in Sevier Park, located in Nashville, TN. Our mission is to bring the best farmers, ranchers, and creative food artisans to our neighborhood and the surrounding community while supporting and encouraging a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We welcome 36-40 Middle TN vendors each market season. We also host festivals, live music, contests, cooking classes, and chef demos.

 

12SFM-PEACH2016-19

Following our mission, we have slowly incorporated environmentally friendly practices at the market including recycling and a compost center. This year our goal is to eliminate the use of single-use plastic shopping bags. Single use plastic bags take hundreds of years to break down, if at all. They litter our streets, playgrounds, and oceans. We hope to shed more light on this problem by being a part of the change. We believe using a compostable plant based shopping bag is a positive step in the change.

Nashville’s mayor, Megan Berry, is committed to making our city “the greenest city in the Southeast”. We believe our green initiative to eliminate plastic shopping bags is just one way we can support our mayor and improve our city!

Instead of asking our vendors to purchase these bags, which would be an increased cost for them, we want to purchase the bags and eliminate the cost for them. Our ifundwomen project is to raise funds to purchase compostable shopping bags for our vendors to use at no cost to them. Keeping costs down for our farmers, ranchers, and creative food artisans is very important to us. Please consider making a donation, large or small, to help us launch this project! Thank you in advance for your support!
