Downtown Ringgold, Catoosa County Courthourse
The newest Chattanooga Public Market has opened in Ringgold, downtown and is growing each week. Mostly considered a tailgate style farmer's market, a few crafters have joined the Market on Saturdays. The Ringgold Market takes place downtown Ringgold at the Catoosa County historic courthouse on Saturdays from 8-11 a.m. through Labor Day weekend.
Annual Peach Festival at Chattanooga Market, Sunday
First Tennessee Pavilion, Downtown
This Sunday will be a peachy one at Chattanooga Market where locals can enjoy fresh picked peaches during season peak. The festival, promoting all things peach, inspires the more than 150 Chattanooga Market vendors to be creative and incorporate peach flavors, smells and peach themes into their offerings. This Sunday, market-goers will be able to enjoy such treats as fresh peach salsa, peach jams and jellies, peach infused vinegar, peach pastries, peach cobbler, peach candles, peach lotions and even peaches and cream soda. As always, folks will be able to enjoy live music on the EPB stage featuring Derik Holtquist at 12:30 p.m. and Jennifer Daniels at 2 p.m. The offerings continue to grow in the Market Cafe with an abundance of local eateries; there is something for everyone's taste.
Due to the heat last Sunday at the Support Our Troops event, the Chattanooga Market will again host the Family Readiness Group of unit 1-181 from Chattanooga on Sunday, in collecting supplies (full list at ChattanoogaMarket.com) to be sent to our local National Guard Unit.
