Exploring the corridor between East Tennessee State University and downtown Johnson City, TN on mild and sunny Wednesday morning in May, the GetShotByElla.com team loads up on fresh produce at the Johnson City Farmer’s Market, 100 East Market Street:
the sweetest aromatic mint, crisp carrots, tasty beets, bright red tomatoes and strawberries, new potatoes, healing comfrey herb leaves and more. Located in a charming pavilion adjacent to Founders Park, the market is open Wednesday and Saturday mid April through October from 7 am to 2 pm.
A comfortable stroll from the market, GetShotByElla.com chances upon the inviting window displays of an Appalachian Artisan Emporium, The Local Company, 240 East Main Street.
Sarah Fagley, who owns and operates the emporium with her husband Scott, is welcoming and happy to share about the diverse and unique, all locally hand crafted, wares on display. The recycled beer can bracelets are irresistible – wearing one now!
