Ringgold Farmer’s Market growing momentum
The new Ringgold Farmer’s Market has become a hit in recent weeks, as hundreds have made Saturday morning trips along Nashville Street to check out the locally grown products that are being showcased to the community on a weekly basis.
Despite extremely high temperatures, citizens have supported the new venture by visiting early and often since the market began approximately six weeks ago.
“We’re really pleased with the turnouts and the enthusiasm that has surrounded the market since it started,” said Daniel Shepherd, marketing and DDA coordinator for the city of Ringgold. “The street here in front of the courthouse is lined with vendors and customers, which is exactly what we wanted. It’s great to have a bunch of peo-ple in downtown Ringgold on a pretty Saturday morning experiencing what local farms and vendors have to offer.”
Currents vendors range from those selling fresh produce, flowers, and meats, to those selling handcrafted ac-cessories such as handbags.
