One of my favorite things to do on nice days during the spring, summer, and fall is to spend the morning at the Farmers Market. While I’m no master chef, I do enjoy learning to cook new things, and I particularly love working with local, fresh ingredients. Fresh ingredients make a home cooked meal even better, and buying local is great for your community. Every Saturday from 8:30 am to 11:30 am (May 19th through October 13th), the Gatlinburg Farmers Market is open to the public in the Alamo Steakhouse parking lot.
- Fresh onions, peppers, tomatoes, corn, beans, squash, and more
- Juicy strawberries, blueberries, cherries, blackberries, and raspberries
- Sweet, local honey
- Homemade quilts, scarves, and sweaters
- Beautiful handcrafted jewelry
- Hand carved frames, furniture, and other home accessories
The Gatlinburg Farmers Market is run by residents of Sevier and Cocke counties who are looking to offer local products to residents and visitors at fair prices while also stimulating the local economy. This is a really great way to support the community and get some really wonderful fresh foods and quality products. Most Saturdays, visitors to the Gatlinburg Farmers Market can browse while enjoying live music, or they can stop by the booth for the Sevier County Humane Society and take home a new best friend. The Gatlinburg Farmers Market is a great way for people of all ages to spend a nice Saturday morning.
