Clarksville Downtown Market seeks vendors
Award-winning venue to open season May 26
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Downtown Market is accepting vendor applications for its 2018 season. Since opening in 2009, the Downtown Market each year has been voted the American Farmland Trust’s “People’s Choice” winner as the best farmers’ market in Tennessee.
The 2018 market season will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays from May 26 to Oct. 13 in downtown Clarksville on Public Square. The fee for a full-time vendor, selling at all 20 market days, is $225. The fee for part-time vendors, selling at 10 market days, is $175. Fill-in vendors pay $25 per market day. All vendor spaces include one white 10-by-10 feet tent, one table, one chair and access to electricity.
Vendors selling local produce, dairy, honey, flowers, cheeses, meats, food products, baked goods/breads, and artisan items are strongly encouraged to apply, but all applicants will be considered. At least 75 percent of a vendor’s items must be handmade, homegrown or gathered by the seller or family member.
