East Tennessee FARM Markets Opening Soon, Adding Local Artisan Products

strawberriesLocally grown produce, grass-fed meats, herbs and artisan products from honey to handcrafted candles will be available soon at East Tennessee FARM Markets!  The Farmers Association for Retail Marketing is bringing genuine Tennessee products direct to you at convenient locations in Knoxville and Oak Ridge.  This producer-only market is celebrating #ETNFARM products with the new season opening in mid-April.

Carefully juried artisan products, handmade by East Tennesseans, will be offered at FARM Markets for the first time this year.  This includes soothing hand salves, crafted beeswax candles and more!

Our farmers pick fresh for you the day prior to or morning of the market, and they can tell you about this when you buy from them directly!  Need local eggs, cheeses and baked goods?  We’ve got those, too.

Throughout the season, we’ll be sharing #ETNFARMpics with you via our website and social media. We look forward to seeing your FARM pictures of your favorite farm picks, too!  If you tag us on social media and use the #ETNFARMpics hashtag, we might re-share your photo or video online!

What sets FARM Markets apart from other farm stands and markets?  This not-for-profit organization  connects farmers and artisans directly with consumers, with no middleman.  We only allow genuine grown-in-Tennessee or made-in-Tennessee products.  We even visit the farms ourselves to assure what’s being grown.  We invite you to come meet your East Tennessee farmers and artisans yourself on market day!

We appreciate your shopping locally and we enjoy getting to know our East Tennessee customers.  Why buy your food and home goods locally?  Our produce is picked fresh, you know where and how it’s grown, and you’re boosting the local economy!
