FAQ: New Harvest Farmers’ Market


  • Q: Is the market open when it is raining?

A: Yes. We are open rain (or snow) or shine.


  • Q: Are dogs allowed at the NHFM?

A:  Due to health and safety concerns for shoppers, vendors, and pets, dogs are not permitted to walk through market. Outside of the market, New Harvest Park offers pet-friendly trails and recreational space. Service animals will always be permitted.


  • Q: Do you accept SNAP/EBT?

A: Yes, we accept SNAP through a centralized program at our information booth and some of our vendors accept SNAP individually. We also offer a Double Up SNAP program that allows SNAP participants to double their food dollars for fresh fruits and vegetables. Please visit the Programs tab for more information.


  • Q: Do your vendors accept credit cards?

A: Most vendors accept credit cards, but not all. We offer a Market Money program at all our markets, where customers, for a $2 fee, can swipe their credit card at our information booth and receive $5 tokens to spend at any Nourish Knoxville Market.


  • Q: Do you allow busking at market?

A: Yes, we welcome buskers at the NHFM in designated busking zones. No amplification will be allowed. Nourish Knoxville reserves the right to dismiss any busker who is causing a nuisance, obstructing pedestrian/vehicle traffic or entrances to shops and buildings. Buskers with excessively loud performances may also be dismissed.


  • Q: What does “producer-only” mean?

A: A producer-only market is one at which all items are made or grown by the vendor. Nourish Knoxville may permit vendors to share a booth, where two independently accepted producers sell their products under one tent, and where only one of the producers is on site at a time. Each product must be clearly marketed as produced by the proper vendor. All Nourish Knoxville markets are producer-only.
