What is Turkey Creek Public Market?
By Sharon Brannam
Turkey Creek Public Market is a place where people come together to sell their products. We, as vendors at the market, are all small business people trying to make a living by selling a variety of products, including handcrafted jewelry, gold and silver jewelry, children's products, tools, car products, bed products, handbags, leather goods, knives, paintings, seasonal products, food, home décor, kitchen gadgets, rugs, clothing, cellular products, candles, pet products, toys, wigs, books, handcrafted gifts, custom signs, services, and much more.
We have put a lot of time and money into our own booths to make them appealing to our customers. We are all here for the same reason, to make a living, and to make new friends whom we call our customers.
Some people want to call us a flea market. Let me put that name to rest. We are not a flea market. Most vendors here sell new high quality products. Yes there are a few vendors that sell used products, but most would be considered antiques and collectibles. The majority of vendors sell new products.
As vendors here at Turkey Creek Public Market we want the public to know that we want and need your support. A lot of us are struggling just to keep our heads afloat and to stay in business. For some of us this is all we have to make a living in this slow economy.
Please help us keep our dreams alive by shopping at Turkey Creek Public Market and shopping local. We appreciate our customers and hope to make new ones as well.
My name is Sharon and I have a booth/business at the Turkey Creek Public Market. I hope this gives everyone a little insight into our place of business here in West Knoxville. This is my livelihood right now. I am recently unemployed, so I, as well as the rest of the great vendors at the Turkey Creek Public Market, want to say thank you to all of the wonderful people who have came and shopped with us. We hope to see you again and hope to meet many more new people as well.
God bless you and God bless America. We would love to have everyone shop with us for the holidays. Santa is with us at the market. Bring the kids!
