Downtown Market wins four awards

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Downtown Market received national recognition at two conferences this past week.


 As part of the Pick TN Conference in Franklin, Tenn., on Feb. 21-23, the Tennessee Association of Farmers Markets awarded the Clarksville Downtown Market first place for Best Market Brochure and second place for the Best Market T-shirt.


 Just a few days later, the Clarksville Downtown Market was awarded first place for Best Event T-shirt and second place for Best Event Sponsor (Seasons Market) at the Southeast Festivals and Events Association’s Kaleidoscope Awards, in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.


 "We are honored to be nominated and excited to have won,” said Shani Simms, owner of Seasons Market. “We've just barely scratched the surface!"


 Seasons Market supports the Clarksville Downtown Market and its vendors through monetary contributions. They also offer weekly giveaways, demonstrations, tasting samples, prizes and incentives to market shoppers.


“The partnership between Seasons Market and the Clarksville Downtown Market is a win-win-win, for the Clarksville Downtown Market’s vendors, our customers and Seasons Market,” said Channel Lemon, Clarksville Downtown Market Manager.


 The 2018 Market T-shirt concept came about from Clarksville Parks & Recreation’s team desire to make a connection between farmers markets and healthier lifestyles. It was designed by Mia Upchurch, a Rossview High School student and intern participating in a local career prep program. The message on the front of the T-shirt is a play on the words farm and pharmacy, creating Farmacy, with the catchphrase, “Let food be your medicine.”


The 2019 market season will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays from May 25 to Oct. 12 in downtown Clarksville on Public Square. Vendor applications are available online through Friday, March 15.


 For information, please contact Clarksville Parks & Recreation at 931-645-7476, follow “Clarksville Downtown Market” on Facebook, or visit www.ClarksvilleDowntownMarket.com.
