About:

The Winter Farmers’ Market, held in the Historic 4th and Gill neighborhood, will host farm & food vendors selling pasture-raised meats, eggs, winter produce, honey, baked goods, artisan foods, and more. Outside, food trucks will be serving up lunch from locally-sourced ingredients.

**Update, 3/18/20: we will be limiting the types of vendors in attendance at the market during the COVID-19 pandemic. Only farm, food, and hygiene products will be available at the market beginning Saturday, March 21st.**

We offer SNAP benefit doubling through the national program Double Up Food Bucks! Customers with SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps) can receive up to $20/day in FREE tokens to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. Get $10 in SNAP tokens from your EBT card, get another $10 for free to spend on produce! Click here for more information about our SNAP benefit doubling program.

FREE Children’s Activity at every winter market! Children 2 years to 12 years old are invited to participate in the Power of Produce (POP) Club activity at each of our 8 markets. Each POP Club will offer local produce to taste, an activity or craft dealing with the local food system, and receive $5 in POP Bucks to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables at the market. ~Please remember, all children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.~ We’re seeking daily POP Club Sponsorship for our 2020 Winter Farmers’ Market; please email us if you’re interested in sponsoring this dynamic and educational kid-centered experience!

** Update, 4/3/2020: we will no longer be offering at-market POP Club activities, though POP Bucks will still be distributed to guardians of all children, ages 2 – 12, registered with Nourish Knoxville’s Nourish Kids program for 2020.**
