The Great West Nashville Farmers Market Schism | Bites

This week's issue of the Scene has a fascinating piece by Margaret Littman with some backstory on the dispute that led to two separate (and some would say competing) farmers markets on the west side: Sean Siple's West Nashville Farmers Market and the new West End Farmers Market, started by the folks at Delvin Farms. The split is the stuff of huge gossip and speculation in town, and in addition to talking to both sides — Siple and Delvin Farms' owner Hank Delvin Jr. — Littman consulted other voices in the local sustainable food movement, including Megan Morton, executive director of Community Food Advocates, an organization working toward a sustainable food system; and Andrea Cloninger Wilson, a professor of sustainable food systems at Lipscomb University.
