Local guide to Nashville Pt. 1
STALK The Peach Truck
Okay, so maybe not stalk them but do become a regular customer. What better place to get peaches than Georgia? Well, Nashville. The Peach Truck offers fresh peaches from the Pearson Farm in Georgia. They travel everywhere in Nashville, from farmer’s markets to your local Juice Bar and you can even find their schedule right on their website.
The best part: A bag of peaches start at $8. You’re on your way to becoming a Georgia Peach with these beauties.
Sweet Sweet Sangria
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, especially with Saint Anejo’s Sangria. The bold flavor of a Roja Spanish red, brandy, orange and cava will definitely give you your fix. Not to mention on Wednesday’s this drink (plus others) are included in their 2-1 deal! Oh and the tacos are half off too.
Guacamole got a hold on your heart? Look no further, Saint Anejo can fulfill your wish with crab on top. Wait what? Yes, crab on top and not just any crab-spicy crab. Go ahead, order it the next time you dine in-you won’t regret it.
Farmers markets are the best place to get your hands on local produce. Farmers Markets are laid all throughout Nashville. It is almost guaranteed that there is one right around the corner from you.
But why a Farmer’s Market? To support local businesses and get fresh food! You will find anything from homemade goods to the parnassus book mobile stationed at the local markets. The Peach Truck might make an appearance too.

Need peace of mind? Check out Radnor Lake, a hidden gem nestled in the heart of Green Hills. Radnor Lake has been a Nashville favorite for decades. It is the perfect place to escape into the wilderness. One can find trails of all difficulty levels to explore. Each month the park hosts various events including sunrise canoe rides and park tours.
Nashville is full of opportunity for adventure, and we cannot wait to see what new experiences this city is going to provide. Here’s to living like a local!
