A new multi-purpose market will open this week on the ground floor at the historic Clemons Building. “Street Corner Market at the Clemons” will be available for residents and nonresidents to enjoy a variety of services and products. 

Owners of the market noted their vision of providing a true Chattanooga experience to their customers.  “There are so many great Chattanooga products," said Operating Manager Elia Gouvista.  “Our customers will be able to select pastries, chocolate and breads from the Bluff View Arts District; Fleetwood and Mayfly Coffees; unique jewelry from Elea Blake; unusual florals from Grafe Floral Studio, and a curated collection of craft beers. The market has secured some exclusive deals such as offering famous Bluff View pretzels all week long and serving Mayfly’s cold pressed coffee on nitro.   

In addition, the deli will offer Boar’s Head gourmet sandwiches for lunch, meats and cheeses to take home after work, and, for the health conscious, the market will feature the only self-service salad bar in the center of the city.  The idea is to provide a true Chattanooga experience that reflects our community’s expertise in all we do, especially healthy living,” said officials. 

With an eye toward customer service, the market will provide the opportunity for customers to ‘build a basket’ of items they want to pick up on the way home through an online portal (which will be available within the next two months). In addition, the owners of the market note that they will begin delivery in the fall to area businesses and residents.  

"From lunch deliveries to deliveries of fresh flowers and custom-made baskets, we’ll be able to meet the needs of busy professionals and residents in downtown,” said Gouvista.

Located in the heart of Chattanooga’s downtown district, Street Corner will also provide a shopping experience for residents of The Clemons.  The market will feature a biometric fingerprint lock allowing residents to enter an area of the market to make purchases afterhours.  

Vic Desai, principal at ViaNova Development said, “Throughout the renovation of the building and the development of this market, we’ve been guided by the history of The Clemons and our own commitment to providing a top-notch product to introduce to Chattanooga. We believe it encourages a more thoughtful and strategic design process that results in projects that are second-to-none in design and implementation.” 

Hours of operation of the market are Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 

In addition to Street Corner Market, the new Epic Optical optometry office and eyeglasses boutique occupies space on the ground floor.  Approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of retail space is still available to be leased. 

The upper floors of the Clemons Building provide 55 uniquely designed luxury lofts while the roof features downtown’s only rooftop dog park.

He turned in his paper and, as it was returned with an A-plus, it is only fitting that something this clever should begin this week’s edition of The  Saturday  Funnies.
