It’s no secret the farmer’s markets around the city are some of my favorite places to visit on a Saturday morning.

The Nashville Farmers’ Market is a melting pot of shops, restaurants, and merchants that offer local and international food and crafts. Open every day of the year, NFM is perfect for taking a quick lunch break or spending the afternoon touring the historic area. One of the many Rent-A-Bike stations throughout the city is outside the market, and a great option for those that want to expand their exploration of Nashville.

Nordic rye bread is dense, full flavored and incredibly well suited to have with your morning coffee or to make a delicious sandwich.
You can purchase some of the best Finnish rye bread from Nordic Breads Company based in Long Island City, Queens.
By Melissa Limberg Far, far away from my Upper East Side residence is a place that precedes itself in legend. Hipster legend. I had vowed to myself that I hated it, I didn’t even want to spend time there. Brooklyn. More specifically – Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Like, the capitol city […]
By Seth Fera-Schanes What do the Union Square Green Market, ABC Home & Carpet and Flatiron building all have in common? I don’t think it is a stretch to say all are unique places and worth a visit. They also all happen to be within a 9 street […]
