Growing & Flourishing
The market continues to grow and flourish because of the support of the City of Clarksville, our hard-working vendors, and the loyal market customers who purchase items each week. Since the Market’s introduction, it has grown from 16 vendors to over 80. In 2020, the Clarksville Downtown Market was voted the #1 Market in Tennessee for the 10th straight season and the #1 Market in America for the first time ever through the American Farmland Trust organization.
