DFA Spotlight: Five Points Market

Aug 02, 2022 at 10:39 am by RMGadmin

Shop Local. Eat Local. Enjoy Local.

The Five Points Franklin Market was started in May of 2021 by Danny and Amy Tassone and Josh Walsh, who own and run Ellie’s Old Fashioned Doughnuts. They felt the need for a mid-week market in downtown Franklin and had used the location at Five Points several times for their doughnut business. Fourth Avenue Church of Christ was supportive of the prospect of having a farmer’s market once a week in their parking lot and excited about the opportunity for more community involvement.
Twenty to thirty local vendors are a part of the market each week – focusing on local produce, prepared foods and artisan goods. In addition, every week, the market has live music, food trucks and a kid’s zone with activities for children. Most farm and prepared food vendors can be found weekly at the market, while several art and craft vendors rotate each month.  
While only in their second season, Five Points Market has added some special features in 2022. The fourth Tuesday of each month is Art Night at the market featuring additional art vendors, live demonstrations and art activities for children. The 2022 season will run through October, with a Fall Festival. 
Pets are welcome at the market, and there will even be a fun “Yappy Hour” for puppies later in the season. 2022 will also see another season of the Five Points Franklin Christmas Market on the four Tuesdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas, showcasing even more art and craft vendors, festive music and seasonal food.  
The Five Points Franklin Market is an opportunity to shop local, support small businesses and have a fun community experience with the whole family!
