Mayor Madeline Rogero helped UT Institute of Agriculture Chancellor Dr. Larry Arrington officially open the UT Farmers Market on Wednesday, May 11 by ringing the opening bell at 4 p.m.

In addition to the availability of local produce and baked goods, the day included music by the Knoxville Banjo Orchestra, children's activities, cooking demonstrations, yoga, beautiful flowers in the UT Gardens and more!

Since 2010, the UT Farmers Market has provided a venue for area producers to sell local food to the Knoxville area. This year the market is adding an educational and interactive component to the weekly market. There will be events, activities and availability for booths for local organizations to connect with the community.

The market will be open on Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m. and is located at the UT Gardens off Neyland Drive.

Learn more about the market on the UT Farmers Market Facebook Page.
