The Gatlinburg Farmers Market will be opening for the 2012 season on Saturday May 19th. The Market will be open every Saturday thru October 15 from 8:30 until 11:30 am. You can find the Market at the Alamo Steakhouse parking lot (705 East Parkway).
The Gatlinburg Farmers Market is a great place to shop for local produce, including: tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, garlic, lettuce, kale, mustard greens, carrots, berries, peaches, and more. The selection changes with the seasons, so you never know what you might find! In addition to produce, you can find all sorts of other things: breads and baked goods, granola, honey, soap, plants, tea, and more! There are also weekly crafter demonstrations by local artists from Gatlinburg’s Arts and Crafts community. During special events there is live music and childrens’ crafts, as well as cooking and gardening demonstrations!
This will be the third year for the Gatlinburg Farmers Market and it has been a great success and help to the local community! We are hoping to see the Market grow even more this year!
We are really looking forward to Opening Day! Don’t forget to stop by on Saturday, May 19th, from 8:30 to 11:30 am for a special presentation by Sevier Couunty Area Master Gardeners Association called, How to Start a Garden. Saturday, there will also be a featured craft demonstration, Basket Making by Theresa Tyler.
A number of vendors will be at the market each week.
The Gatlinburg Farmers Market is a dream and a vision to provide our residents and visitors with fresh, local produce for fair pricing while supporting and stimulating the local economy.
New vendors are being added every day, so there is sure to be a great assortment of locally grown and prepared foods to choose from!
