Sweet Tea & Shopping Marketplace Events

âSweet Tea & Shoppingâ is the purely southern name that describes the semi-annual barn/pop-up sale hosted by Julia Proctor and the Sweet Tea & Shopping team. Twice a year, the creative minds and hands of this self-proclaimed band of âgypsies and hippiesâ can be counted on to present one of the finest artisan market events in the Southeast. This September 16 and 17th, the historic Sumner County Fairgrounds, located in the heart of Gallatin, Tennessee, just north of Nashville, will fill to the brim with more than 150 artisans, makers, crafters and entrepreneurs displaying, sharing and selling their unique designs and creations. In addition to shopping, there are mouth-watering culinary selections, entertainment, childrenâTMs activities (Saturday only) and beautifully designed vignettes and displays crafted to perfectly provide for photographic memories.

What began as a single four-hour gathering showcasing 17 makers and artisans from the local community has grown to a two-day extravaganza, attracting guests and participants from all over the U.S. ThereâTMs something for everyone: Visitors will find shopping, entertainment, food, music and lots of friendly faces. If itâTMs shopping you like, you are sure to find a treasure among the original art by talented artists, handcrafted artisan creations, jewelry, soaps, antiques, junk-tiques, rusty and chippy picker finds, collectibles and vintage goods from all eras. For the music lover, there is live entertainment Friday night and Saturday throughout the day. Feeling curious? Visit one of the many artists sharing their talents through displays and mini-workshops. Of course, what would a good old-fashioned homespun day be without some fresh, home-cooked food? You will want to visit the assortment of food trucks and confectioners, for sure
