Holidays Kick Off Sunday At Chattanooga Market

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

The holidays for the Market will officially kick off Sunday with the Thanksgiving theme offering "foodie" ideas for the season and a sneak peak preview of gift giving specialties.  Chattanooga Market will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving on Sunday, Nov. 25.  

The traditional Holiday Market will be expanded to the entire month of December allowing locals and tourists the opportunity to buy gifts while supporting the local art and craftsman community.  In its 11th year, the outdoor Holiday Market will hold tradition at the First Tennessee Pavilion on Saturday, Dec. 1, and Sunday, Dec. 2.  Filled with Christmas spirit, Sweet Georgia Sound will entertain all weekend long with seasonal favorites.  Shoppers can enjoy over 150 vendors offering gourmet foods, jewelry, photography, furniture, art canvas, apparel, bath and beauty products, toys, custom ordered cakes, metal sculptures and more.  Typical cool weather, hot chocolate and a visit from Santa make this weekend part of a Chattanooga tradition.

Holiday Market Too has been expanded to encompass the last three weekends of December. Held at the Chattanooga Convention Center, this Market tends to appeal to enthusiasts looking for a convenient, indoor accessible approach to serious holiday shopping.  Shoppers can enjoy live holiday piano performances, concessions and the best of the region's skilled artists and craftsman.  Weekends of operation are Saturday and Sundays (Dec. 8, 8, 15 and 16) and the weekend of Friday - Sunday (Dec. 21-23).  Directions and hours for all holiday events can be found at ChattanoogaMarket.com. All Chattanooga Market events are free and free parking is available at both venues.
