With the first fall break ever, it was a free day to visit the last downtown Sevierville farmers market of the year. Sunny and 70 degrees made a nice day to end the market run for this year. First, I met Elaine, Janice, and Anita at Courthouse Donuts for coffee and a ‘catch up chat.’ Then we headed out to the market. Here is what we saw.
Misty Benson transferred natural dye directly from plant to fabric. See the small, hammer- like tool used to lightly pound a fern leaf onto 100% cotton? Then use vinegar to ‘set’ the image so it won’t wash out.
Guess what this design is from? A kudzu plant leaf.
Also available were metalworking/blacksmithing gifts.
Next artist, Andrea Wilson was pulling print etchings for this artist.
Fun for kids at the downtown Sevierville Farmers Market!

Here are some of our farmers market vendors this year.
Marvin Henderson, from Sevierville.
Jackie Diaz lives in Sevierville now.
Mike lives in Sevier County.
Patsy lives in Sevierville. If you want to order some animal figurines as a holiday gift or something then her email is firstname.lastname@example.org . I am emailing her some pictures for gifts.
My friends and I headed back to Courthouse Donuts for lunch. Get a window seat so you can watch the comings and goings downtown. One friend said that the chef salad was excellent.
Another friend ordered the chicken salad sandwich. It is fabulous!
Afterward, we walked a block to Treasures From the Heart to shop.
We looked at dresses first. Lots of nice ones there now. This one caught our eye.
The ‘show stopper’ dress is still here!
Of course, I checked out all the glassware again.
It was a nice walk to the car after a day with friends out and about in Sevierville.
See you downtown at the Holiday Market on December 1st and 2nd. Stay tuned for more details forthcoming!
