What a glorious weekend it was in Franklin, TN beginning with evidence that fall is definitely on its way! Can I hear a “Yay y’all!”
Franklin does fall really well! I mean we know how to get our fall on and this past weekend we kicked it all off with the inaugural Made South Market at Harlinsdale Farm! I wish you could have come with me.
In a world that seems to move too fast, it’s wonderful to experience all things handmade with love, care and patience. These artisans and makers are not in a rush.
I promised a rundown of some of my favorite fall events but I don’t want you to get overwhelmed. You can’t do everything and you shouldn’t try. Pick whatever suits your fancy and head out to discover whatever shows up.
If you haven’t been to the Franklin Farmer’s Market at The Factory, now is the perfect time to go. You’ll experience home-grown goodness from vendors who don’t just offer the freshest produce, but milk and eggs from their farms…grass-fed beef and fresh eggs…cheeses, herbs, flowers, cinnamon buns (oh my!) and freshly baked bread. There’s music and more and Franklin has the only “producer only” market in Tennessee! Bring your out-of-town guests because they’ll love it!
When you’re finished food shopping stroll around The Factory and check out some of my favorite stores like City Farmhouse (in their new permanent location) and RELEK. If you’re searching for a unique find, you won’t be disappointed.
Have you purchased tickets for the Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival on September 26 – 27? You won’t want to miss this line-up of performers.
Mark your calendars in October for…
Leipers’ Fork Yard Sale beginning on October 9 – 11. It’s a fundraising event to support “Friend of the Fork.” You never know what treasure you’ll find at the yard sale.
The 3×3 Art Show in Leiper’s Fork an absolutely perfect way to spend your Saturday evening, October 10 from 6-9 pm. Stroll the streets and wander in and out the art galleries while sipping some wine and meeting the artists. I love this night and look forward to it all year.
City Farmhouse Pop-up Fair located in Leiper’s Fork at the famous Buddy Killen Estate. Over 80 antique and vintage vendors make their way here from over 20 states. If you haven’t been you’ve just got to go. Check out last years’s show and block off October 16 and 17 to do some serious shopping. This event has been named one of the Top Five Events to attend in October by Southern Living magazine. This year Matthew Mead and Cari Cockney and Upcycled Magazine will be featured.
And finally be sure to make it to Franklin’s favorite fall festival – Pumpkinfest in historic Downtown Franklin. Packed with vendors, food galore and crafts, this is the perfect family day because there is truly something for everyone. Yes…there are crowds but it’s a not-to-be-missed event.
There’s more…but I don’t want to overwhelm you…so stay tuned for more Franklin Fun!
Oh yes…I so LOVE Fall in Franklin, TN!
I love connecting with you. I hang out here too!
