More than 350 varieties of plants are available to choose from, and more than 50 of those are tomatoes. Come support local business and nonprofit sustainable farm, Crabtree Farms of Chattanooga."
The main festival occurs on Saturday and Sunday, with 20 visiting vendors offering everything from smothered burritos and fresh coffee to specialty herbs, handmade crafts, live music and pickles.
