Frequently Asked Questions


There are many questions so here are some answers to the most common.

  • I am a direct sales vendor for a large company. Can I sell my products at the market?
    • No  - direct sales vendors are not allowed at the market. This is for  farmers and those selling locally made goods related to farming.
  • I make crochet dolls/hand sewn pillowcases/custom beaded jewelry. Can I have a table at the market?
    • No  - craft products are best suited for a craft fair type event. The only  craft vendors you will find at the market create a product that can be  linked to farm uses. For example, potters create bowls and plates and  honey pots that work well with products that farmers are selling. The   number of these vendors allowed at the market is limited.
  • Wouldn't the market be better on a Saturday? Why don't you switch to the weekend?
    • Just  as many people that want the market on the weekend, love having it on  Friday. Our vendors are often at markets multiple days during the week  and Fridays have proven to be excellent days in Franklin. If you are heading away for a summer weekend, stop at the market first so you have the freshest goods for your summer cookout.
  • Can you change the hours? I can't make it there by 6.
    • While  we are sorry that you can't get there until later, our vendors are  tired. The market starts at Noon to accommodate lunch times for many  local businesses. There is then the after school crowd in the mid  afternoon and finally all those that get out of work in the early  evening. Unfortunately, business slows down by 6PM on Fridays in the  summer and after a long summer day at the market, our vendors need the  time to pack up, travel home and finish their day. Once fall starts, it gets pretty dark by the time our vendors are heading home. Your understanding is  greatly appreciated.
  • I have a charity/non-profit organization near Franklin. Can I have a table to promote my group?
  • Do you accept credit cards?
    • This  is up to each individual vendor. There are several vendors that accept  credit cards. However, please be aware that cash and check are  appreciated whenever possible. It costs the vendor money every time a  credit card is processed. Cash payments go directly to the vendor to  help support their continued business.
