KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — One of Downtown Knoxville’s most attended events is ringing in 20 years.
The Market Square Farmer’s Market, put on by Nourish Knoxville, has been bringing fresh foods and local vendors to you every Wednesday and Saturday.
All produce and food items are grown, raised, or made within a 150-mile radius of Knoxville. The farmers’ market is not only an opportunity for local farmers to sell their food, but many merchants have successfully built a strong relationship with the Downtown Knoxville shoppers and even have opened up their own storefronts.
“The Market Square Farmers’ Market sows life into our city center,” Nourish Knoxville CEO Charlotte Tolley said.
In honor of this milestone, many bars, cafes, and restaurants will be creating specially crafted or featured menu items during National Farmers’ Market Week happening from Sunday, August 6 to Sunday, August 13. This restaurant week-type event will be at select locations where 20 percent of the proceeds will be donated back to Nourish Knoxville
These participating locations will be featuring and highlighting freshly made ingredients that come from the East Tennessee region.
