The Sunday Market offers local artisans and vintage vendors reoccurring gatherings to build community, while giving shoppers direct access to stylish handmade goods and vintage finds. This new market is the longtime dream of local artisans Caroline and Kevin Ritter, owners of Light of Day Home custom furnishings, who wanted to “give back” and grow community in the area they love to call home. Caroline and Kevin created The Sunday Market based on combined 30 years of personal artisan creations, participation in regional shows, and professional merchandising experience. The monthly free admission events showcase a rotating non-profit organization, and provide a purposeful Sunday outing for friends, families, and discriminating shoppers of all ages.

The Sunday Market debuts at the Factory at Franklin

Seasonal Market Caters to Vendors, Promotes Community
Franklin, TN – A new type of seasonal market makes its debut at the Factory at Franklin on Sunday, Apr. 9 from 11:00AM – 5:00PM. The Sunday Market will feature handmade goods designed by local artisans as well as high-quality vintage finds. Market admission is free, but guests are encouraged to learn about and support the community-focused non-profit highlighted each time. This month, Nashville-based Go Be Love International will showcase its domestic and international mission work.
In addition to over 40 handpicked vendors, there will also be local musicians and food trucks. We’ve partnered with many of The Factory at Franklin Restaurants and they will come outside and join us. Parnassus on Wheels and Amelia’s Flower Truck roving stores will be onsite to round out the market’s offerings.
“The Sunday Market is a place to slow your pace and just spend the afternoon shopping, eating, socializing, and finding local opportunities to serve. We have carefully selected unique vendors creating a neighborly environment full of talented business we have right here in the greater Nashville area. We hope to fill your soul on a Sunday afternoon,” says Caroline Ritter, Director of The Sunday Market.
The Sunday Market is located outdoors on the Southeast side of The Factory at Franklin, 230 Franklin Drive. The covered market will be held rain or shine April 9th and May 12th, and will kick off its fall season on September 10th.
