CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- It is market season once again in Chattanooga.

It kicked off today with the Chattanooga River Market.

The market sits on the plaza in front of the Tennessee Aquarium.

The River Market is ran by the Chattanooga Market, who is looking forward to a big year.

Jake Bass, the manager for the Chattanooga River Market, said, “We supply the area of Chattanooga with handmade goods and items from all over the Chattanooga area.
