The James H. Quillen VA Medical Center in Johnson City is looking for vendors for its first farmers market opening later this month.
Organizers said there will be 14 booth spaces at the ‘Mountain Home Farmers Market’. Half of those spaces are already filled.
Anyone can apply to be a vendor, but priority is given to Veteran farmers.
“This was a great way to bring in healthy options for the veterans. It gives us the opportunity to offer some more options to teach the veterans about nutrition education,” said Move Coordinator Angela Gervais.
The ‘Mountain Home Farmers Market’ will kick off April 25 and will be open on Thursdays from 2:30-6:30 p.m until October.
It will be set up in the parking lot near the parking garage and lake.
Community members planning to attend the farmers market are asked to enter the VA grounds from State of Franklin Road and take a right at the fork (toward the lake).
Anyone interested in applying to be a vendor can email email@example.com.
