Smoky Mountains Travel Guide
|Fresh is back and green is good along the Parkway in Gatlinburg this summer as the Gatlinburg Farmer’s Market prepares for another eventful season starting Saturday, May 11.
Each participating vendor will have their own locally grown or made fares for sale and/or sampling, and all promoting healthy mountain living. The Gatlinburg Farmers Market will be open each Saturday from 8 – 11:30 am in the Alamo Steakhouse parking lot at 705 East Parkway through October 12.
Last years opening day events at the farmer’s market included a demonstration of stained glass cutting and assembly techniques by Talking Turkey Studios. Vendors that day included Ely’s Mill - honey; Catskill Farm – garlic, walnuts, vegetables, cut herbs; Gourmet Creations – sauces, pie mixes, soup mixes; Wildflower Bake Shop – home made breads and pastries; and Valerie Dixon – produce and blackberries. A number of vendors are expected back for another go-round this year.
The Gatlinburg Farmers Market started as a dream and a vision to provide residents and visitors with fresh, local produce for fair pricing while supporting and stimulating the local economy.
You’ll find all Gatlinburg area growers and supporters from Sevier and Cocke counties at the market. Of course, the market was established to shine its light on fresh area produce and homemade products offered locally and in an atmosphere focused on food, lifestyle, technology, and major event productions in this area.
Directions to the Gatlinburg Farmers Market: From stop light No. 3 in Gatlinburg, turn south onto Hwy 321 toward Cosby, the Gatlinburg Farmers Market is located about a mile down the road on the left in the Alamo Steakhouse parking lot.|
