Jonesborough Locally Grown
is a community non-profit organization dedicated to supporting our local farmers, building our community, and increasing access to and awareness of fresh, healthy, locally grown food. We operate producer-only markets—where growers sell directly to consumers; no resale is allowed. We offer you two ways to buy the freshest local produce and food through our Saturday market and our newly-opened Boone Street Market local food store!
Saturday Morning Market
NOTE: NO market on festival Saturdays (July 4 and Oct 3, 2015)

In addition to fresh locally grown vegetables, plants, meats, cheeses and baked goods, the Saturday market features live music (starting at 9am), a café area and selected food/farm related crafts.
The Jonesborough Farmers Market is a member of the Appalachian Farmer’s Market Association, supporting farmers who sell directly at farmer’s markets in the region. See appfma.org
Boone Street Market
Opened Oct 29, 2014! A farmers market retail store in the former “Bob’s Exxon” building in Jonesborough. All food sold in the store must be produced within 100 miles of Jonesborough. This is a place for farmers sell year-round and let our store staff do the work of selling for you! For store information, please call 753-4722 or see the Boone Street Market facebook page.
Invitation to Volunteer
Volunteer support is critical to the operation of Jonesborough Locally Grown! We rely on volunteers to infuse the market and store with a spirit of community and maintain the many programs that make our market special and welcoming, both to customers and vendors. Community and vendor volunteers serve on the board, help with set-up and take down, staff the market information booth, help in the store kitchen and as cashiers and delivery drivers, coordinate our Farm to Table dinner fundraiser, and more! It’s fun, the tasks are manageable and we provide training. You will meet some people you will be glad to know, and munch on a lot of good fresh food.
If you are interested in finding out more about the volunteer jobs available please go to VOLUNTEER JOB DESCRIPTIONS. If you would like to fill out an application form to be a volunteer, go to MARKET VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM. One of the market managers will contact you to welcome you to the market team. If you are ready to sign up on the volunteer schedule go to JB MARKET SIGN UP SCHEDULE. If you are interested in helping with the Farm to Table Dinner go to FTT SIGN UP. You may also just come on down to the Saturday Market and talk to us about volunteering. Everything can be taken care of right there, and you can easily observe the operation of the market and meet the folks you would be working with if you decide to volunteer.

The Farm to Table Dinner
Chef Alex Bomba and Main Street Cafe and Catering created and hosted our first Farm to Table fundraiser on a beautiful August evening in 2011. At each Farm to Table Dinner, Chef Bomba creates an elegant 5-course meal sourced from market ingredients.
The dinner raises critical operating funds for the market, thanks to the support of the town, a zillion volunteer servers, and the generous donations of
Our 2014 dinner served 216 people at our signature table on Main Street.
