Clarksville’s Downtown Market

I thought I’d share some highlights from my trip to the Downtown Market last weekend.

Although, at 8 A.M. it was already miserably hot, all of the vendors had delightful dispositions!

Looks empty, but it was still early—believe me, you’ve got to get there early for the best selection.

This is a gentleman who makes incredible wood carvings. Last year I bought an intricately carved rooster figurine.

Oh my . . . fried pies!!! Get there early—they go quickly.

This is Ted Kitterman working with Joe Schiller of Broke Point Farm. I bought their snow peas—yum!

Diann Nance is our local herb expert. Here, she is sharing scent of her dried lavender with a customer.

Dianneis so knowledgeable—I usually spend too much of her time picking her brain for gardening solutions. I left with citronella plants; a potted garden which included: patio tomatoes, Anaheim peppers, chives and basil; a “piss off plant” which is supposed to keep away unwanted cats and dogs (I’m just interested in the “cats” part, as most of my garden beds smell worse than my indoor cat’s litter box); a Jacob’s Ladder plant and a curly parsley.

Don’t miss Evawood Bakery. Not only are they some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, their breads are fabulous! I took home that beautiful foccacia and a hearth baked sourdough.

Where’s her card? I can’t find it. Thankfully her business name is on the tablecloth—Nifty Crocheted Works! I bought two wash clothes and made a special request for a particular item. I’ll keep you posted.

This is Melissa of This and That. She sells items made of fabric, jams and thank you cards—just as her business name implies.

I didn’t get a picture of my favorite plant and vegies vendor—they’re from Pleasant View. I bought the tastiest tomatoes from them this month.

And from this vendor, I purchased peaches. They’re amazing!

Well, I hope this encourages you to get downtown this coming weekend. Don’t forget to visit the downtown businesses when you done at the market.

Thanks for your indulgence!

I am SO going this Saturday! Perfect to pick up some things for Father's Day!

Isn't Diann the best? She does fantastic classes.

I agree. There will be some great things for Father's Day--especially for a cook-out! Fresh corn on the grill, peach cobbler, mmmmm!
