Sunday Marks Grand Opening Of Amqui Station Farmer’s Market

CREATED Jun 1, 2014
MADISON, Tenn. – The grand opening was held Sunday, for the new farmer’s market in Madison.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean sounded the first whistle, signaling the grand opening of the Sunday Farmer's Market at Amqui Station.

The historic Amqui Train Station, known as “the train station that Johnny Cash saved,” has been a centerpiece in the Madison community for 104 years. 

Now, the landmark will be the centerpiece for locally grown food.

"I think it's an attractive area, it's got a great location and there's a lot of pride here. People really care about this community,” said Mayor Karl Dean. “Amqui Station wouldn't be here if the citizens didn't have a lot of prime in their community. They saved it."

The market has been scheduled to open every Sunday from June through October. It will be open from noon until 3 p.m.

According to the station’s website, the museum will also be open, free of charge during the market hours.
