Downtown Chattanooga River MarketYou can learn a lot about a city by visiting the same places that the locals frequent. In Chattanooga, that place is the Public Market, widely considered to be a community hub. Public farmers markets have also increasingly become a popular as tourist attraction, which of course is no different in Chattanooga.  Chattanooga’s local farmers markets are wonderful places to experience live music and entertainment, great food, and the farm grown produce that is central to Chattanooga’s delicious cuisine. There are weekly events happening at the Chattanooga Public Market throughout the summer, and it is certainly worthy of a visit the next time you’re in town. But the main Chattanooga Public Market on Sunday isn’t the only market worth visiting in Chattanooga. The Chattanooga River Market is the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Chattanooga.  Book your room at our Chattanooga Bed and Breakfast today, and discover the pulse of Chattanooga at our markets.
