It’s about community. Chat with friends & meet new people. Ooltewah Farmers Market is organized and hosted by a family-owned local small business, Ooltewah Nursery & Landscape Co., on historic Main Street in Ooltewah, TN. OFM is a producers-only farmers market featuring only locally grown food. No resellers allowed. As a part of our application and vetting process, each farm is inspected by the OFM Manager to insure that its products are indeed locally grown. Know where your food comes from and shake the hand of the farmer who raised it for your family. The market is open every Thursday all year round [Summer Hours (April-Oct): 3-6 p.m.; Winter Hours (Nov-March): 3-5 p.m.] with great local foods such as organic veggies & greens, free-range eggs (chicken, duck, guinnea, etc.), fresh baked breads, raw milk (cow & goat) by herd share, fruits, mushrooms, pastured meats (beef, pork, lamb, poultry, rabbit, etc.), jams & jellies, local raw honey, nuts, and much more.
To stay informed about the items coming to market each week, join the OFM email list. You will receive a weekly email on Wednesday detailing the farms coming to market and some of the items they intend to bring. You may join the email list on our Home page, or text GARDEN to 22828.
