The market will be held Thursdays from 3-6pm, beginning on April 26 & continuing weekly through November 15, 2012.  

All vendors must grow, make or produce the products they sell.  No resale is allowed.  Vendor booth rates are $5 per week - if a booth is reserved for one month (4 weeks), the rate will be $15. 

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help with the upcoming season of the ‘Shopping at the Farm’ Farmers Market. Volunteer Opportunities include (but are not limited to): Vendor Recruitment, Data gathering at weekly markets, Information table attendants, Set up & clean up assistance and Marketing & Advertising assistance. 

We are excited about the continuation of this service to our local community & look forward to having many of our local farmers & artisans participating!

New Brochure Unveiled

2012 started off with excitement over the new &  improved Marble Springs brochure.  We worked closely with the design team at Robin Easter Design to ensure the  “Pamphlet on the Last Home of John Sevier” perfectly captures the historic & rustic nature of our site, all while concisely conveying important information about John Sevier, the historic site, the Governor John Sevier Memorial Association (GJSMA) & facilities information.  

The brochure also features a QR code which, when scanned, will take smart phone users directly to our Facebook page.
