It’s only fitting that the region’s first lifestyle hospital and an integral part of the East Hamilton area community will be the presenting sponsor for the Wednesday Market in Collegedale. Erlanger East Hospital will be a mainstay each Wednesday, at The Commons in Collegedale, continuing to build awareness and support throughout the community. The Collegedale Market is held each Wednesday from 4-7pm at The Commons, offering fresh farm foods, artisan foods as well as arts and crafts.
“Erlanger East Hospital and Erlanger Health System are proud to sponsor the Collegedale Market. Supporting local businesses, artists and farms while promoting a healthy lifestyle are important objectives to Erlanger. The Chattanooga Market and Erlanger East Hospital’s partnership brings accessibility to both artisan goods and locally grown foods as well as healthcare and education,” says Christine Gordon, Marketing Brand Manager at Erlanger.
Organized by Public Markets—known best for the downtown Chattanooga Market—the Collegedale Market promises to be a midweek opportunity for East Hamilton County area residents to access fresh foods and join in future community events. The Collegedale Market will be year round with the expectation of adding days of the week as the Market builds. And Erlanger will be a partner in growing this Market, a collaborative effort showing commitment to the awareness and availability of healthy food choices.
