Small Business Saturday + Holiday Market
Right now it is more important than ever to support small local business.
Shop Small® is so much more than Small Business Saturday®. It’s a year-round movement that’s all about helping communities thrive, one purchase at a time.
The Blount Chamber wants to celebrate Small Business Saturday with you! It's a special holiday created so communities can show love for small local businesses.
The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.
In addition to Small Business Saturday in Blount County we are also celebrating with a Downtown Maryville Holiday Craft Market! For the 5th year, Downtown Maryville will be celebrating Small Business Saturday by hosting a Holiday Marketplace filled with local business and local/regional makers!!
Downtown Businesses will fill their space with holiday cheer and goodies – so come ready to shop!! This will be a great opportunity to purchase gifts for the holidays as well as support our community! Including a Free Cookie Decorating station with Hot Chocolate. Food trucks will be on Mainstreet as well.
There will be vendors outside on the sidewalks all along Broadway and social distancing will be practiced and face masks are required.
Be sure to come see us at the Great Life RE Office at 223 W Broadway Ave for some hot cocoa! We will also be taking donations for CareCuts who will be distributing these items to the homeless.
Items of need are: Coats, Tennis Shoes, Boots, Sweatshirts, Sleeping Bags, Men's and Women's Pants, Tampons, and Socks. You can also donate money by making a check out to CareCuts. CareCuts’ mission is to serve the homeless population in Knoxville. They provide free haircuts and grooming services to the less fortunate on the first Sunday of every month. Since their launch, they’ve grown to providing the homeless with meals, optical testing and glasses, clothing, transportation, and job resources, as well.
