Nourish Knoxville

East Knoxville’s Farmers’ Market

Nourish Knoxville’s staff has a 15-year history of cultivating healthy communities by supporting relationships between farmers, producers, and the public through managing and mentoring farmers’ markets. According to the Food Trust, half a million Tennesseans, including citizens in East Knoxville, live in food deserts and lack access to healthy food options, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. Nourish Knoxville plans to partner with community members to launch the Eastside Sunday Market to supply East Knoxville with much needed fresh produce, as well as other grocery items, every Sunday through the summer at Tabernacle Baptist Church.
