Chattanooga, TN, is home to the Chattanooga Market, the region's largest authentic outdoor market. The market, open Sundays from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., hosts producer-only products from local farms and food manufacturers. Vendors come each weekend bearing garden vegetables, fresh fruit, cheeses, fresh-roasted coffee, homemade salsas, jellies, cakes and much more. The market also hosts monthly cooking classes that feature recipes using fresh food from the market and puts on special foodie events like an Ice Cream Social and Fire House Chili Cook-off.
