The Chattanooga Public Market has grown in the past few years and now offers three artist & farmers markets to the community: Chattanooga River Market (Saturdays), Chattanooga Market (Sundays) and the newest addition, Ringgold Market (Saturdays). Live musical entertainment and the commitment to authentic handmade/homegrown goods are consistent among all Chattanooga Public Markets.
The Chattanooga River Market will celebrate its opening day for the 2013 season from 10 a.
m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 23 on the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza. Live music, handmade, local artistry, crafts, unique gifts and a light offering of food vendors will be featured at the River Market every Saturday until Labor Day weekend.
The Chattanooga Market will be open for the season 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 21 at the First Tennessee Pavilion. In its 12th season, the popular Sunday Market continues to provide weekly opportunities for buying local.
Boasting over 30 themed events this season, each Sunday will feature a charity partner or agricultural tie-in. Traditions continue with local favorite events such as the 2-day Chattanooga Oktoberfest, and the very popular “foodie” events and cook-offs.
The Ringgold Market will open 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. June 1 at the Historic Catoosa County Courthouse. The popular Saturday market will continue to showcase local-based produce and wares.
