The Dandridge Farmers Market has become the place to get all your fresh produce and homemade goods from local farms. For the past three years residents have shopped the Market every Saturday from June through November for the freshest vegetables, fruits, eggs, honey, and much more. Many vendors offer organic selections.
True to the agricultural roots of JeffersonCounty, vendors are required to be farmers within the Jefferson and surrounding counties (no buy-sell is allowed)…and the market is part of the authenticity of a small town experience. The Farmers Market is host to many Demonstrations and activities by organizations of the Dandridge community. Past participants have been the Martha Dandridge Garden Club, Jefferson County 4-H Club, and local eateries and school clubs offering cooking demonstrations (with sampling) and pancake breakfasts.
2011 will feature a spring Farmers Market to provide residents and visitors access to fresh early season fruits and vegetables. This year will also launch reusable Farmers Market shopping bags as part of the Main Street Dandridge Green Initiatives.
