Farmhand Dinner 2016 says
Join our farmers, ranchers, and growers as we celebrate the end of a bountiful summer. The fourth annual Farmhand Dinner on Wednesday, September 28, 2016, will offer guests a unique dinning opportunity to learn more about the Market while enjoying a family-style meal with the men and women who produce it. The Farmhand Dinner features the collective efforts of eight of Nashville’s most talented chefs who will create a casual yet inspiring Southern meal made with fresh ingredients grown by our local farmers.

This event, inspired by fifth-generation farmer Troy Smiley, honors the traditional, celebratory meal enjoyed by farm workers after a long day of harvest. A;; proceeds benefit the Nashville Farmers' Market.

The evening kicks off at 6:00 pm with a traditional “water break” featuring signature cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. The dinner bell will ring at 7:00 pm and will include wine pairings and live music by Bluegrass favorite Jeremy Holt and the Tennessee Fieldhands. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased on the website below.
