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: Dogs are welcome at New Harvest Park. Due to health and safety concerns for shoppers, vendors, and pets, we ask that pets not be brought to food booths. 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.
