About Us

Chattanooga Market is the region’s largest producer-only marketplace.  As a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity (Public Markets, Inc.), we were established to provide healthy, fresh produce, artisan foods, as well as locally-produced arts and craft wares to Chattanoogans and community visitors. We offer entrepreneurs who are hand-making, growing or otherwise creating their own goods a low-cost environment to start, grow and expand their business.

Through our weekly public markets, we encourage commerce, entertainment and trade in downtown Chattanooga and the surrounding region, and have become an icon for the city in terms of cultural diversity, tourism and economic impact. Frommer’s has named us as one of the Top Ten Best Public Markets in America, and Fox News selected our Chattanooga Oktoberfest® as one of the Best Family-Friendly Oktoberfests in the U.S.

Currently, we operate 4 weekly Public Markets: New in 2016, we are open at Cambridge Square in Ooltewah for Friday Night Markets during the summer months and Collegedale Market will be opening in 2018! Our Chattanooga River Market is open Saturdays for an artists Market, downtown at the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza.  And celebrating its 17th season at the First Tennessee Pavilion, Chattanooga Market is open on Sundays during regular season. Each Market has its own flair, personality and offerings.

At our Public Markets, we host a multitude of local charities throughout the season including, but not limited to, United Way Chattanooga, Erlanger Foundation, Austin Hatcher Foundation, Chambliss Children’s Home and Chattanooga Food Bank. In many cases we provide the platform for their annual fundraising efforts, which have become signature community events, held at Chattanooga Market.  In 2015, our total charitable impact was over $200,000.

In giving back to the artistic community, in 2012 we conceptualized Chattanooga WorkSpace – a facility which offers creative professionals private studios space, open galleries for their works and a community to collaborate within. We host daily and monthly events at Chattanooga WorkSpace, inspiring creatives and informing the greater community about their endeavors.

Governed by a Board of Directors, we have a staff of eight full-time employees and a seasonal support team of nearly three-dozen. We do not receive any local government funding, but primarily rely on the fees from our vendors, members and sponsors to fulfill our mission.

We are grateful to be supported by the following organizations: First Tennessee Foundation, EPB Fiber Optics, Mountain View Auto Group, Erlanger Health System and the Tennessee Aquarium.


The Chattanooga Market is in the ℹ️ First Tennessee Pavilion just across the street from Finley Stadium.

Our address is 1829 Carter Street, Chattanooga TN 37408.
