Tips On Storing Fresh Vegetables

The Bellevue Farmers Market offers a wide variety of locally grown produce at our market each Friday night. There’s nothing much better than a local, pesticide free, ‘homegrown’ tomato.  Particularly, a Cherokee Purple.  Purchasing your food at The Bellevue Farmers Market is not just an investment in local farms. It is an investment in your personal health. We want to help you protect your ‘investment’ for as long as possible. MyFitnessPal.com recently posted a chart with tips on storing fresh vegetables. Be sure to download this convenient tip sheet below.

“Belle Vue I” to be open for tours on market nights

The Belle Vue I, which overlooks Red Caboose Park, is the original home of Abraham Louis DeMoss, founder of Bellevue.

The Bellevue Harpeth Historic Association plans to have the cabin open every Friday night during market hours.  The home originally stood on a ridge overlooking Morton Mill Road for more than 200 years.  Abraham Louis DeMoss, his wife Hannah, and their 9 children lived there.  The cabin was donated to Bellevue Harpeth Historic Association by DeMoss descendants Frank and Dolly Carter and their family.

Stop by Red Caboose Park between 5pm and 7:30pm every Friday night during The Bellevue Farmers Market for a tour and a brief history lesson!
