The Collegedale Tomorrow Foundation has raised $6.3 million in donations towards construction of the Commons, which is slated to begin construction in early 2017. During this building period, we will be unable to occupy until the Grand Opening event in late 2017.
The big sister of the Collegedale Market, the Chattanooga Market, is the region’s largest producer-only marketplace. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity , we were established to provide healthy, fresh produce, artisan foods, as well as locally-produced arts and craft wares to Chattanoogans and community visitors. We offer entrepreneurs who are hand-making, growing or otherwise creating their own goods a low-cost environment to start, grow and expand their business.
Public Markets Team
Governed by a Board of Directors, we have a staff of eight full-time employees and a seasonal support team of nearly four-dozen. We do not receive any local government funding, but primarily rely on the fees from our vendors, members and sponsors to fulfill our mission.
