In coordination with the City of Collegedale and the Collegedale Tomorrow Foundation, the Collegedale Market will be holding a holiday shopping experience at the future site of the Collegedale Commons. The newly formed Collegedale Market (Chattanooga Market organizers) will become a staple for the Collegedale community in 2016.
“We wanted the Collegedale community to experience a holiday market in their own backyard. This year, it will be under an enormous tent, until construction of The Commons is complete. We’re looking forward to an additional presence for Public Markets, Inc. (501c3 non-profit), growing the Collegedale Market as we have done in Chattanooga” – Chris Thomas, Executive Director of Public Markets, Inc.
The Collegedale Holiday Market will feature a selection of vendors selling artisan gifts, foods, decorations and other holiday wares. An opportunity to meet with the community, vendors will be set up for two weekends, under the tent, to provide ample time for folks to visit. Food trucks will be on site as well, offering lunch, snacks and hot chocolate.
Christmas at The Commons will kick-off this Thursday evening, December 3rd at 5:30, with the city’s tree lighting ceremony (rescheduled from Monday). The Collegedale Holiday Market will then take place at the same location on Saturday, December 5th/Sunday, December 6th and the following weekend, Saturday, December 12th/Sunday, December 13th. House are 11-5pm. Check CollegedaleMarket.com for directions to The Commons.
