CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. –The Clarksville Downtown Market, organized by Clarksville Parks & Recreation, is in full swing and continues to thrive, offering an array of benefits to both vendors and patrons alike.
With its mission to foster community connections and bolster local farmers and artisans, the Clarksville Downtown Market is not just an ordinary marketplace—it has become a cornerstone of our community's quality of life.
Running until October 21, 2023, the market has already set a new benchmark with vendor sales projected to exceed $700,000 for the season. This total is gross sales that go directly to the Clarksville Downtown Market vendors.
Each market day showcases the immense support from our community, with an average collective sales figure surpassing $38,000 and drawing over 3,000 customers. In addition, the Clarksville Downtown Market accepts SNAP/EBT benefits. This inclusion ensures that healthy choices are accessible to all members of our community.
“The Downtown Market has become the premier downtown event for our community,” said Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts.
“While we can measure the impact in vendor sales and crowd sizes, the award-winning market's true impact is in bringing people downtown, promoting small business, and reinforcing community pride.
“The Market will continue to be a fixture of downtown for a long time, and we are grateful for the support,” said Mayor Pitts.
