It was only 70° as I parked at the lot on Main Street and Court Avenue to go to the downtown Sevierville farmers market. With those temps, I knew that it would be a special day to enjoy the market without all the usual heat. What a nice day it turned out to be!
The entrance to Court Avenue is lovely. The Department of Parks and Recreation deserves compliments for their hard work. This spot is lovely.
Did you realize there are brochures for a downtown self-guided walking tour?
The flags were out for Flag Day.
First, I stopped for a coffee at the Crust and Crumb on Bruce Street. Next, a friend met me for lunch. After that, we strolled to the farmers market around 12:30 to catch the last 30 minutes.
My first stop was the table by the Sevierville Commons Arts Council. Pictured left to right are Marilyn Davenport, Crystal Lynn, and Elizabeth Cole.
So many beautiful things at the Sevierville Commons Arts Council table.
Art is alive and well downtown. We can look forward to some upcoming ‘make-it-and-take-it’ classes soon.
Ham and Goodys is famous for their cookies and many customers have made a drive to Knoxville to get these treats.
Rather than individual cookies, Ham and Goodys sells them by the dozen. I chose an assortment to take to my father for Fathers Day. The Ham and Goodys people said that customers were waiting when they arrived at the Sevierville farmers market in the morning! Yes, I can believe that.
I sometimes buy soap from this vendor, but suddenly developed a thirst and had a refreshment instead. What wonderful lemonade! Make sure that you look for this young entrepreneur next week! Great lemonade!
The Sevierville Fire Department brought a beautiful old fire engine and we wanted to go for a spin.
Sevierville’s finest are at the farmers market to answer questions and offer help to the community.
The downtown Sevierville farmers market is a good opportunity for families to shop or work together. The food sold here is the best of the summer!
This is one of my favorite vendors: Sevier Blumen. I bought some Zinnias for my dining room table and they are beautiful.
The bouquets are a delight for the senses.
Who can resist beautiful flowers?
Don’t forget to bring a shopping bag to the farmers market!
Soon, it was closing time for the market so I wandered down Bruce Street toward my car. A wonderful smell was coming from Graze Burgers and I could hear music coming from their outdoor patio. The sounds and smells always entice me to come over for a while.
Every time that I go downtown, Graze Burgers beckons with sounds and the aroma from the grill. So nice.
I hope to visit the Graze Burger outdoor patio soon. They are ready to serve you.
Currently, the construction was happening at the upper end of Bruce Street. This is needed to install underground utilities and new water lines.
As I walked to my car, I could see work going on for the new lofts going in downtown on Main Street. Perhaps that will be a future post when we are out and about in Sevierville.
