Downtown Market to open Saturday

Downtown Market 2020

CLARKSVILLE, Tennessee. – Clarksville Downtown Market will open Saturday, May 16 at a new home on the banks of the Cumberland River. 

McGregor Park North Extension, behind O’Charley’s on Riverside Drive, will be the site of the popular weekly event until further notice while COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions are ongoing. Additional rules, safety measures, and sanitary guidelines have been put in place to ensure patrons will be able to shop safely. 

Trey Stroud, Downtown Market Manager, said this Saturday will be a new experience, and patrons should familiarize themselves with the changes.

“We are following all the proper guidelines to open the Downtown Market on May 16. We’re asking that all our visitors follow the new rules and help keep the market safe for everyone,” Stroud said.

The 2020 Clarksville Downtown Market will open with a reduced number of vendors and hours. Only farm vendors will participate. The market will open at its normal time of 8 a.m. but will close at 11 a.m. until further notice.

Limited parking is available in the North Extension area of McGregor Park. However, patrons may park in any other lot at McGregor Park and follow the Riverwalk to the Market. Patrons also are encouraged to check the weather forecast and prepare accordingly.

These measures will be followed to keep the market safe and accessible for all patrons:

  • Vendors and patrons will be strongly encouraged to wear facial coverings.

  • Vendors will be required to wear gloves.

  • On-site crowd control will limit the number of patrons allowed on the market grounds at one time.

  • Patrons cannot touch the merchandise prior to purchase.  

  • Caution tape will be placed at each tent to ensure a safe distance between patrons and vendors.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for patrons.

  • Public restroom facilities will not be available

The award-winning Clarksville Downtown Market, traditionally staged at City Hall, is in its 11th year. It opens at 8 a.m. Saturdays from May 16 to Sept. 26.
