Open-air markets continue this fall along Rossville BLVD

The BLVD Project and Rossville Downtown Development Authority are teaming up again to host fall markets on November 4 and December 2 from 4-8pm

The BLVD is a grassroots organization that aims to improve access to food, safety, transportation, aesthetics, and business along the Rossville Blvd corridor. The markets will be located at 207 Chickamauga Ave. in Rossville and there will be vendors selling locally grown produce, flowers, original artwork and consumable personal goods.

The organizations organized summer markets that were well attended and well received by the community. “I’ve reminisced and met so many wonderful people at the summer markets and I look forward to returning as a seller during the fall/winter seasons,” said Julie Simpson, owner of New South Trading Co. “The positive energy this market has generated is a great kick-start to the revitalization efforts of this area.”

“The community was delighted to have a positive event on Rossville Blvd,” said Heather Herweyer, executive director of The BLVD Project. “One respondent to a survey on the markets said, ‘I just have to say that I love that the state line is making an effort to plan fun things. It’s a great event and we love going.’ RDDA is exploring the possibility of continuing the markets into 2023.”

Flora De Mel becomes the food and alcohol seller for the markets. Richard Daigle is the musical guest at the November market and Barefoot Nellie performs at the market in December.

The December market is holiday themed and there are a few vendor spots available. Interested vacation equipment sellers can email [email protected] for more information.
