Old Fashioned Fun

Sylvia Ganier, owner says “Fall Fest provides old fashion family fun. Children will enjoy activities in the Kids Zone, and adults will enjoy live music, local crafts and plenty of vendor booths with samples, as well as lots of local food and beverage options. We love celebrating the change of season and a new harvest of locally grown vegetables and flowers. Green Door Gourmet has become a hub of local food and farming activity in Nashville.
