We are so proud to have been recently featured in an article by the New York Times on Farmers’ Markets! They had lots of awesome things to say about the market we call home, and shouted us out directly!

“One of the oldest Tennessee markets, the Nashville Farmers’ Market, is just a mile away from the honky-tonks on Broadway. The market’s current version, a long way from the 40-foot-long “city market” in 1802, is a 16-acre grid of stalls and one pavilion just north of the Capitol in the city’s urban core.

The open-air stalls operate throughout the year inside two large covered sheds that serve 150 vendors, including ranchers, artisans, dairy farmers and cheese makers as well as dealers of farm-direct products like honey, jams, jellies and chutneys. The market also lists 12 meat and seafood vendors.

Also open year-round is the Nashville market’s expansive, slightly raucous food hall, which offers several international restaurants, including Greek, Jamaican and Korean fare; cafes; a craft beer pub; and several specialty stores, including a comprehensive international market. If you have room in the car or truck, swing by the market’s popular Gardens of Babylon, a nursery with a focus on ecologically sensitive gardening practices.”

Our Garden Center is located in the heart of downtown at the Nashville Farmers’ Market. We carry an array of products for the home and garden, including vegetable and landscape plants, houseplants, pottery, organic amendments, and much more.

Check out some of the five-star Google reviews we’ve received about our outstanding garden center:

“I have been getting plants from Gardens of Babylon for several years now. Everyone has always been super helpful and informative based on my needs. I love their selection of plants and plant accessories.” – Nicole – Google review

“I love this place! Their pot selections are always so cute, they have a fun selection of crystals and incense, and of course – their plants are always high quality and wonderful. I could spend hours here and sometimes I do just looking at things. It’s definitely my go-to garden center here in Nashville.” – Stephanie – Google review
