The Jonesborough Farmers Market
is a community run, volunteer organized market for the direct sale of farm raised produce and homemade products. We are dedicated to supporting our local farmers and artisans, building our community, and increasing access to and awareness of fresh, healthy, locally grown food. We are a producer only market—no resale is allowed. We offer you two ways to buy the freshest local produce and food through our Saturday market and our online market.
When the Saturday market closes in October, the online market opens up for the winter and offers local products every week until the Saturday market returns in May. It works like this: From Sunday-Tuesday customers can place orders on “the Market” page of this website for delivery to the Jonesborough Visitors Center on Wednesdays at 5:30pm. To get notification when the market is open, create your free customer account. When ordering is open, just click on “the Market” and start shopping!See the Q&A section for all the details!
