Get the last minute gifts on your list all under one roof
The Chattanooga Market winds down for the year this weekend—but on both Saturday and Sunday, Santa Claus, live music and over 170 vendors will be on hand to cheer your last-minute holiday chores and to help you keep your Christmas shopping local.
The market moved indoors for the last part of December to the Chattanooga Convention Center at 1150 Carter Street. Hours this weekend are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday.
The ensemble Sweet Georgia Sound, under the direction of Mike Laroche, will play swing versions of holiday classics from 1-4 p.m. both days, and St. Nick will be around for photo opportunities.
How about some homegrown stocking stuffers? The market, as always, features plenty of local food items, as well as locally produced furniture, jewelry, pottery, clothing, natural bath and body products and other merchandise from area farmers, artists and craftspeople.
The regular outdoor Chattanooga Market will reopen in the First Tennessee Pavilion downtown on Sundays and Wednesdays during the last week of April 2016, as will the Chattanooga River Market in the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza.
Spring will be here before you know it!
