Bootleggers Busted at New Public Market in Farragut

By Jeaneane Payne

As soon as the new Public Market in Farragut opened its doors last weekend, the Tennessee Department of Health pounded the pavement and shut down a number of booths at the market.

Several vendors were selling homemade food items along with merchandise. DOH carefully canvassed the market finding every vendor who was in violation of the Health Department's requirements for having a certified kitchen to prepare food products.

Vendors were shut down last weekend, and more were shut down today. One vendor had homemade fudge for sale as well as high-end products. DOH ordered her to shut down immediately. The 70-year old vendor was just trying to make a few extra dollars.

Bootlegging used to be a popular business in East Tennessee. Moonshine and fudge -- all a part of our Southern culture.
