In the 2020 market season JCFM is proud to be celebrating our 10th year of connecting local farmers with the people of Mountain City and the surrounding areas of Johnson County.
We are thankful for the wonderful supporters who have helped our market grow. And grateful for the hard work of our vendors who bring their fresh produce, crafts, and products to our market. Without whom the market would not be possible
As we continue our mission visitors to JCFM can find a family friendly environment and a great place to connect with the local community.
We are excited to be able to bring programs like Go JoCo Kids where children can learn about healthy eating and can earn tokens to spend at the market by participating in a health focused activity.
JCFM is also a great place for participants of the SNAP program to find fresh locally grown produce and other qualifying items. Our SNAP at the Farmers Market program allows customers to use tokens to purchase qualifying items from vendors who may otherwise be unable to accept SNAP.
We invite you to come and visit JCFM on Saturday mornings, explore our offerings, make friends, enjoy our special events and shop local.
Johnson County Farmers Market works to strengthen a sustainable local agriculture and food economy. We do this by promoting food education, engaging in community and economic development and promoting the availability of fresh, healthy local food and agriculture.
I was born and raised in rural Wisconsin surrounded by small family farms. We raised chickens, rabbits and grew a large garden mainly to feed our family. My husband and I moved to East Tennessee 6 years ago and continue to carry on that tradition today minus the rabbits. We live on a small homestead in Johnson County where we raise/grow most of our own food but I still love shopping at the Farmer’s Market.
JCFM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is governed by a five person board of volunteer members.
