Last Chance to Visit the Clarksville Downtown Market

Since its opening, the Clarksville Downtown Market has been a success- so much so that we were voted the number one market in Tennessee through America’s Farmland Trust, four years in a row! Don’t miss your chance to visit the Clarksville Downtown Market on its last day of the season, Saturday, October 19th, 2013.

The market will be open from 8:00am to 1:00pm, on Public Square.

Come out to see all the wonderful fall produce the market has to offer, create a Halloween Craft with help from Paper, Chalk, Scissors, and enjoy the musical performance by Red River Breeze. Don’t forget the kids- children ages 12 and under can enjoy free pumpkin painting from 9:00am to noon (while supplies last).
