Movers and shakers who were instrumental in bringing Boone Street Market to fruition attended Saturday’s event, including Dana York, center, who is credited with finding initial funding and who was given the honor of cutting the ribbon, and Karen Childress, far left, who oversaw much of its implementation.

Boone Street Market celebrated its recent renovation with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held Saturday, April 13, in downtown Jonesborough. While the market re-opened in March, the renovations were recently finalized and the café is already in operation, offering local meals to-go and for dine-in customers. “We’ve been waiting for our store to be back in full swing before planning a grand re-opening,” said Jonesborough Locally Grown Executive Director, Shelley Crowe. “We’ve hired a new chef, rearranged the store to feature new and more products from local producers and created a friendly space for guests to enjoy our kitchen’s offerings. We are excited to show it off to all who have supported these big changes at Boone Street Market”.

Attendees to the ribbon-cutting were treated to the chance to try a special brunch menu available for dine-in customers, along with other fresh to-go options that utilize local ingredients provided by our vendors. Dana York,
