High Cotton Christmas Market Is Friday And Saturday

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

The Ringgold Feed & Seed High Cotton Market is the largest antique market in the Chattanooga area and will be held Friday and Saturday.  This event draws thousands of antique lovers and junk explorers every year.  The November market will have antiques, rusty gold, vintage Christmas, handmade items and more spread out in the parking lot and throughout the store. 

The event is free and parking is free. 

Started in 2014, the High Cotton Market was just a small gathering of vendors who had some extra treasures that couldn’t fit inside the store and wanted to have a bit of fun selling junk in the parking lot.  Now, this event has blossomed into an outdoor antique festival with dealers from all over the Southeast along with 75,00 square feet inside the store with deals on antiques, vintage and industrial finds.  In addition, there is the Cotton Gin Antiques, which shares the parking lot located in the original Calloway Feed & Seed building.

The Ringgold Feed & Seed is at 403 High St.

He said the truth is that he had only moved to a new location".  I remember when we named 15th Street as Billy Graham Avenue, his daughter Gigi came for the dedication ... (click for more)
