 Explore the Chattanooga Markets

The main Chattanooga Market at the First Tennessee Pavilion, which is now in its 13th year of operation, is the larget local market of its kind in the region.  This wonderful market features an array of fresh produce, meat, and cheese, in addition to live music and popular local food trucks.  There is a major theme and many events each week, so you’ll always find something new and exciting when you visit.  For example, next week the Chattanooga Market will be celebrating the Tomato Festival.  Here, there will be many tomato varieties on hand, as well as local farmers to talk to and recipe demonstrations from the Culinard Culinary School.  In August, food lovers in particular won’t want to miss the Five Star Food Fight, where local chefs compete and show off their culinary skills under pressure.  This exciting event is one of the top annual attractions at the Chattanooga Market, and will feature 5 local chefs, including last year’s winner Blacky Smith of Beast and Barrell.

A popular new market this year is the Wednesday market, which is new for 2014, and also held at the First Tennessee Pavilion.  The Wednesday market is smaller than the traditional Chattanooga Market, and features live acoustic music, fresh produce, artisan foods, and of course local food trucks.  On Saturdays, shoppers can head to the popular River Market, which features live music, arts and crafts, jewelry, and hand-made apparel.  This charming market is held at the plaza at the Tennessee Aquarium.  With all of the excitement at our local markets, we know you’ll enjoy your time here.  Book your room at our Chattanooga area Bed and Breakfast now, and join the fun this summer at local Chattanooga Markets.

Remodeling the Kitchen 4 Feb 2014, 9:24 pm

Well it’s finally happened! The long anticipated kitchen remodel has begun! The first day started out with the removal of cabinets and flooring. As is to be expected with an 87 year old house, we had to replace a few of the floor joists before installing the sub floor. Day two began with patching and painting the walls in order for the tile to be laid. Once the paint had dried the tile went in. We can’t forget about the lights. They were replaced too! Day three brought the installation of our beautiful, new cabinets. The arrival of day four involved finishing touches to prepare for the new appliances. Final measurements were taken for the granite counters. Slowly, but surely everything is beginning to fall into place.
