We are happy to announce the opening of the Chattanooga Essentials Markets on Sundays 10am – 2pm — a substantially smaller shopping only experience. In a similar format to our Collegedale Essentials Market, the market will be reducing our vendor attendance to exceed social distancing guidelines. The essentials-only format is expected to continue through July to allow opportunity for shoppers to come in a more dispersed manner. The same CDC guidelines will be followed downtown as in Collegedale:

  • Fewer than 65 farmers, food artisans and essentials such as soaps and lotions; limited selection of other local goods
  • Local chefs with take-and-go items
  • No sampling or unnecessary handling of products
  • No pets, no families – please help to limit crowd size.
  • Vendors will be wearing masks
  • Patrons are expected to wear face masks, per state guidelines
  • Please observe social distancing, and limit your visit duration.

The following market elements are temporarily limited:

  • Limited onsite dining
  • Limited live music
  • No cultural themes, festivals or activities

The hours will be Sundays 10am-2pm. The scope of vendors will be farms, food artisans, body and self care, and a few spots dedicated to rotating artists.

Thank you for supporting local farms and artisans.  We hope to resume our normal market operations this Fall.
