Extended Market Hours

In conjunction with daylight savings, our year-round market is now open from 4pm-6pm.

Always starting at 4pm, we adapt to the seasons and close earlier during darker days so farmers can get back and not do farm chores in the pitch black. But Spring and Summer means longer light so we can have longer market hours.

Join us fifty-two weeks a year, starting at 4pm then shop, sip and support Chattanooga’s only locally grown or sourced outdoor grocery store until 6pm.

Shop Year Round…

Located on the Corner of W. 20th St. & Chestnut St., our market will open at 4pm all year. Although the time of when the market ends may fluctuate with the season, the market itself happens 52 times a year!
