The Chattanooga Market and Erlanger East Hospital's partnership brings accessibility to both artisan goods and locally grown foods as well as healthcare and education."

Organized by Public Markets—known best for the downtown Chattanooga Market—the Collegedale Market promises to be a midweek opportunity for East Hamilton County area residents to access fresh foods and join in future community events, it was stated. The Collegedale Market will be year round with the expectation of adding days of the week as the Market builds. And Erlanger will be a partner in growing this Market, a collaborative effort showing commitment to the awareness and availability of healthy food choices, it was stated.
