CHATTANOOGA -- It’s September, and Christmas décor is lining store shelves. You’d think that the seasons are determined by which week school starts, and we’d all be wise to air out our winter coats now.
Amy Tavalin suggests that instead, we should stop the hands of time long enough to visit Chattanooga’s Main Street Farmers Market on Wednesday, Sept. 10 from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. when Pick Tennessee Products will host a fall produce media day.
Tavalin, farmers markets specialist with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, says, “Don’t skip the very best time of year to visit farmers markets. From now until the first hard freeze is easily the most abundant season of the year in Tennessee. We have a long growing season, so not only are all of summer’s favorites enjoying a last hurrah, but everything from fresh apples to Indian corn will be elbowing into farmers market aisles across the state.”
