CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The Collegedale Market will begin its first full season with a bang April 7-8, 14-15, 21-22 as locals will be treated to a sneak peek for early spring shopping the weekends at The Commons in Collegedale, a new facility behind the city's police station.
The 2018 season at Collegedale will kick off for three weekends in April and then settle into a Wednesday Market from 4-7 p.m., with more days added in 2019. Each week will feature live music, food trucks, farmers and artisans. Parking is ample and restrooms facilities are provided.
The growing market is a major focus in 2018 for Public Markets, organizer of the popular Chattanooga Market in downtown Chattanooga.
Last season's Christmas Market in Collegedale touted large vendor sales, making vendors and shoppers happy.
The Commons will also be managed by Public Markets, and several community events are already on the calendar. Food festivals, concerts and movies in the park are among several events locals can expect in the near future.
A pre-season vendor conference is being held this 10 a.m. Saturday, March 10 at Finley stadium for vendors interested in learning more.
