August 7-13, 2022 is National Farmers Market Week! In celebration, Nourish Knoxville is hosting multiple events all week to celebrate the impact of our local farmers’ markets including partnering with some local breweries for pint nights, highlighting markets across East Tennessee on social media, and extra special events for our super-fans! Here are some ways for you to celebrate our local farmers and your favorite Nourish market including a full list of events:
Vote for us in the American Farmland Trust’s Farmers Market Celebration! Be sure to cast your vote for the Market Square Farmers’ Market or New Harvest Farmers’ Market as your favorite market in the country and help us win $5,000.
Grab your friends and head to Printshop on Tuesdays. Every Tuesday in August, Printshop Beer Co will be donating $1 of every beer back to Nourish Knoxville. No better way to celebrate it not being Monday.
Join us as we kick off National Farmers’ Market Week at The Boocherie at 2920 Sutherland Ave, Knoxville, TN 37919.
The Boocherie, created by the successful kombucha entrepreneurs at Frog Juice, is Knoxville’s first sober bar. Adults can enjoy an eclectic and cozy bar atmosphere minus the triggers of alcohol with a menu including mocktails, honey sodas, and their signature artisanal kombucha. Celebrating National Farmers’ Market Week, they will donate $1 of every pint sold to Nourish Knoxville to support our farmers’ markets and nutrition incentive programs! The Boocherie is partnering with private chef Stephanie Shershaw to provide a special brunch for guests from 12 – 2 PM, $12 a person. Chef Steph will be sourcing ingredients from the Market Square Farmers’ Market to provide a true locally inspired brunch! More details to come. Join the Facebook event here.
