Anyway, as we try to remember those three numbers you call in the event of medical emergency, we hope we make it to this evening's 12 South Farmers Market, revving up another successful year in Sevier Park today from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. That gives you plenty of time to stuff your pockets with broccoli rabe before tonight's sold-out Jack White shindig at the Ryman, and maybe even order a sandwich from The Grilled Cheeserie, a Doc Braden Creole-seafood tart or one of Riffs Fine Street Food's award-winning Caribbean creations.
There'll be dairy farmers, meat purveyors, makers of artisanal breads, and vendors of everything from herb-infused lemonade and vegan snacks to candies, pies and cheese — not to mention the first flowerings of what's looming as a spectacular summer for vegetables. Stop by also for live music from The Human Revolution, led by a troubadour who bills himself simply as Human. (We confess we were even more excited early on, but then we realized we'd misread his name as Hunan.)
