Grab your cup of coffee, head out the door, and get your weekend mornings started off with freshness! Each of these Farmers Markets offer the opportunity to get up close and personal with the food you eat. You can chat with local farmers and growers who are happy to share their growing methods, techniques and information on farm life. Or you can meet with a local baker and probably share a couple of tasty recipes. Or you can pick up some great herbs and flowers to plant in your own garden at home. Take home some local honey, handmade jellies and jams, handcrafted soaps and more. The options of fresh happiness are just endless at a Farmers Market in the Great Smoky Mountains!

Meet friendly and knowledgeable vendors at Farmers Markets in the Smokies.

And seriously, you can’t have a group of folks get together for any amount of time in the Smoky Mountains without some live music breaking out. So chances are that on that Friday or Saturday you wander over to the Farmers Market you’re bound to hear a fiddle or two along with some tall tales! Visit a Farmers Market in the Smokies and you’re sure to enjoy yourself thoroughly, and you might make a few new friends while you’re there!
