Chattanooga Market will be ready for families this Sunday. It’s a Dad’s Day tradition…cold, local brews and live music too. While the temps heat up, there’s something special about an iced cold beverage while listening to blues music. This Sunday boasts Graysin Slade and then Rick Rushing, live at 2pm on the Lodge Cast Iron Sizzle Stage.

And, it’s peak produce season with corn, tomatoes, okra, beans, squashes and so many other veggies. The Market makes it easy to shop for a Sunday night Father’s Day meal with fresh cuts of meat (Meyers Beef Farm, Barton Creek, Cove Creek, Bakers Family Pastures), seafood (Reel ‘Em In) and fresh baked breads (Bluff View Bakery, Honey Seed and others). If BBQ is his “thing”, there are several sauce makers to deliver just the right amount of sweet or spicy (Hoff and Pepper, Ferguson Pickles and Sauces, Lucky Cajun).

The food trucks continue to come by the dozens. Dad will enjoy eating a nice big, juicy burger (Johnny Poppers), tacos (I Love Tacos), BBQ (Dad’s BBQ), with several other choices while visiting Chattanooga Market.
