The mission of Rabbit Valley Farmers Market is to promote the exchange of fresh, high quality local food and agricultural products between agricultural producers of Catoosa County and its surrounding region, its residents, and visitors for the purpose of supporting local growers, providing quality products to consumers, and supporting sustainable agriculture and downtown revitalization.
We envision a future in which Ringgold and Catoosa County will be home to a diverse, interconnected food system that promotes healthy food and sustainable farming. Rabbit Valley Farmers Market is a leader in this system, leveraging the power of communities by providing resources, educational programs, and sustainable mode of food distribution for farmers, producers, food banks, and consumers.
At Rabbit Valley Farmers Market, we believe in fostering relationships with local growers and artisans to create a thriving community of high-quality goods. Our mission is to provide our customers with the freshest produce and unique artisanal products. We take pride in supporting sustainable agriculture and Downtown revitalization initiatives through our market.
