“I often see Nashville chefs visit the market on weekend mornings, visiting with purveyors and making selections for their restaurants,” said Tasha Kennard, Director of Nashville Farmers Market.  “It’s a delight to see.  Dale and his team regularly source both here and directly from the farms, and I’m excited to have them in the Grow Local Kitchen to visit with and serve market visitors.”
