[ARCHIVED] State Street Farmer's Market to open June 6


It’s gardening season and the much-awaited opening of the State Street Farmer’s Market is set for 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 6, with some slight changes from recent years.

In an effort to provide additional room for social distancing, the market has been relocated to the Bristol, Tennessee Municipal Parking Lot just off Shelby Street. Ample parking is available in the adjacent lot, which can be accessed from Anderson Street.

Customers are encouraged to:

  • Stay home when sick or in recent contact with someone else who is sick.
  • Limit attendance to one person per household to prevent crowding.
  • Wash and sanitize hands upon entering the market.
  • Observe 6-foot social distancing at all times.
  • Pay attention to the one-way direction flow of traffic within the market area.
  • Use bags provided by vendors. Reusable bags will not be allowed.
  • Bring $1, $5, and $10 bills for purchases to help prevent the exchange of money.
  • Shop each vendor, but avoid lingering to eliminate crowding.
  • Leave pets at home. Service animals are welcome.

Only two customers will be permitted at each vendor’s table at a given time. Others should wait at the 6-foot marker for their turn. Vendors will handle items and bag them for customers.

The market will initially be open on Saturdays only from 8 a.m. to noon. For additional information, please contact Mike Musick at (423) 764-4026 or
