The 2017 season is winding down at Chattanooga Market. Apples are coming in and tomatoes are soon going out. The air is crisp and the fresh-popped kettle corn once again becomes the dominant smell when entering the First Tennessee Pavilion. It’s fall time at Chattanooga Market and folks are eager to pick up some fall produce while listening to live music every Sunday until the last of the season. There’s still time to enjoy though—a list of upcoming events is below.
The Market will be closed the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend and then move indoors to the Chattanooga Convention Center for the annual Chattanooga Holiday Market—a gift market for the season throughout the month of December. Entrance is free.
Head of the Hooch is a favorite sporting event each year in Chattanooga where rowing clubs, teams, schools and individuals come from all over to compete. Chattanooga Market will be on location along the Tennessee River during the race weekend of November 4th and 5th with local arts, crafts and food trucks. The national rowing regatta brings in tens of thousands to the river and Ross’s Landing every November and Chattanooga Market has become a staple to tourists and event visitors.
