Pack Fingerless Gloves
The days are getting cooler, but that’s only more reason to visit Richland Park on a Saturday morning, before the Farmers’ Market closes for the winter. You’ll find some of Nashville’s most talented gastronomy artists serving imaginative, tasty, local treats that you won’t find elsewhere.
Get there early, before Brightside Bakeshop sell out of their pumpkin cheesecake croissant rolls: crispy, flaky dough treats stuffed with pumpkin-cheesecake cream and topped with candied pecans. Or, for a more savory option, try the all-local Breakfast Melt from The Grilled Cheeserie, voted one of the top 5 food trucks in the country.
Pick up something for the road from Caity Pies, who’ve become one of Nashville’s most-loved bakers in little over a year of business. You’ll find their pies in coffee shops across town, but they don’t have a storefront (yet), and this is the best place to try their full range of seasonal, southern fillings such as whiskey-sweet potato, bourbon-apple caramel, or chili-cornbread pot pie. Feeling full after all those baked goods? Short Mountain Cultures will cure what ails you with kimchi and sauerkraut juices.
Richland Park, 4711 Charlotte Pike, Saturdays 9 – 12.
