Johnson City Farmer's Market
The Johnson City Farmers Market has been around since 1976. It began as a cooperative effort between markets in Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol. The people instrumental for this beginning were Marsh Beckner, Walter Blalock,and Harry Fain. This association was called F.A.R.M., which stood for Tri-Cities Farmers' Association For Retail Marketing. The Johnson City Farmer's Market was located behind St. Johns Episcopal Church on North Roan Street in Johnson City, TN. In 2000, St. Johns needed to expand and the market moved to its current location of the city-owned parking lot at South Roan Street and State of Franklin Road. Luke and Bonnie Verble were instrumental in making this transition. In 2003, the Johnson City market broke away from what had become a Kingsport oriented market. Bristol had been closed a couple of years prior. (Bristol has recently reinstated its market.) At the Johnson City Farmer's Market you will be able to enjoy fresh produce, baked and canned goods, arts and crafts, and community fellowship while attending the lot.
