MISSION OF THE BLOUNT COUNTY FARMERS MARKET
To enhance a unique marketing system providing quality, quantity, and variety
of product mutually beneficial to both vendors and shoppers.
The Blount County Farmers Market is a state-sanctioned endeavor that allows folks to "buy fresh, buy local" and support the area's thriving agricultural community while meeting and visiting with the actual farmers. From June through October, the Market is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The actual opening day will be decided by unanimous decision at the market meeting. Closing day will be determined at a later date in October. The market offers fresh produce, fruits, and vegetables.
Selling privileges at the Blount County Farmers Market are extended to all producers and growers or their agents that have a bona fide growers permit. All vendors at the Blount County Farmers Market must have permits.
