CHATTANOOGA, TN--(Marketwired - Mar 14, 2014) - Nothing heralds the arrival of spring quite like a good farmer's market. Fresh produce, local artisans and a smattering of tempting sweets all combine for a perfect weekend day. And in Chattanooga, there's only one farmer's market where you'll have more fun than if you hit your snooze button. It's the Chattanooga Market, and guests of the Residence Inn Chattanooga Near Hamilton Place will be just 15 minutes away from all its delicious action when it opens for another season on April 27, 2014.
The Market welcomes more than 50 farmers each week, all of whom arrive with produce, meats or cheeses straight from the farm. In addition, around 150 artisans set up shop, tempting visitors with items like cheesecake pops, freshly squeezed lemonade and fresh-cut flowers, as well as handcrafted items like glass and jewelry. Food trucks also rumble onto the grounds to feed hungry shoppers, and the cultural diversity represented by these mobile eateries nicely complements the range of entertainments on-hand. Cuatro de Mayo, for example, is the Market's chronologically convenient riff on the traditional Mexican holiday, while local pop, folk and country artists croon to the crowds each Sunday.
Travelers looking to get a taste of this area hotspot won't find a better option among hotels near Hamilton Place Mall than Residence Inn Chattanooga. Its 109 suites include sumptuous bedding, fully-equipped kitchens, complimentary Internet access and free daily breakfast to make stays as comfortable and easy as possible. Best of all, the property's warm hospitality extends well beyond the guest rooms. The Chattanooga hotel also boasts an indoor pool with a whirlpool, a fitness center and even a putting green.
As the finest among extended-stay hotels in Chattanooga, TN, this property is also a smart choice for exploring the Market, which is open at 11 a.m. every Sunday until late December. (The Market is held at First Tennessee Pavilion and is free to all visitors.) Holidays are especially festive with special events planned for Mother's Day (think chocolate-dipped strawberries, champagne and a performance by the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera) and Father's Day (Bacon, Blues & Brews). Plus the Market will feature new hours this year with special Wednesday markets that include the highlights of regular market days -- fresh produce, acoustic music, food trucks -- but with a more relaxed ambience.
For travelers seeking compelling hotel deals in Chattanooga, TN, this property can't be beat. Its modern and inviting accommodations, numerous amenities and convenient location make it one of the most desirable properties in the area.
