Happy Sunday, y’all! I hope you’re having a splendid weekend wherever you are. Mine started off so well when I joined a few friends at a farmer’s market in Nashville, more specifically the one at Richland Park off of Charlotte Avenue.
Anyone who knew me growing up knows I can be a picky eater and I don’t know if becoming vegan a few years ago made my narrow preferences worse or better, but we don’t need to go down that road (at least not today)!
Today I want to highlight two venders, both of which I hardly have the words to describe the deliciousness of what they offered. Seriously, I know I can pick any words, and there are a lot of them, but to make it easier, just think of any words that are synonymous with amazing, memorable, tasty, scrumptious, delicious… hold on, I will just show you… from Thesaurus.com.
OK, I know what you’re asking: Which two vendors are you talking about?
The Cake Project (Instagram: @thecakeproject615) offered a wide variety of variations on cheesecake, some vegan, some not. I got the vegan key lime pie and it was everything I dreamed it would be… and I love key lime pie. In other words, it didn’t disappoint. I actually still have some left in the fridge and you better believe I’m looking forward to finishing it off soon. Also, I want to include the presentation of their desserts… coming in a cute little glass jar and adorned with colorful wrapping. It was all great.
Radical Rabbit (Instagram: @RadicalRabbit_)was the second vendor and offered an entirely vegan menu of soul food.
As you can see, by the time I snapped this picture a lot of their items were sold out. Earlier, I went with the cheeseburger egg rolls. Eating them just plain, great. Dipped in the included sauce, other-worldly. I was so impressed with the flavors and I can’t wait to try the other menu items the next time I have the opportunity. I’m very curious about the vegan ribs so I imagine that will be sampled close to the top of my list.
If you’re a Nashville resident or visiting from out of town, definitely check out this farmer’s market and definitely stop by The Cake Project and the Radical Rabbit. Vegan or not, you will be glad you did. My friends tried other foods from other venders as well, and there were no complaints. All in all, you will be happy with probably anything you get from this farmer’s market… not to mention all the puppies you can pet.
