The Hiawassee Night Market started with a conversation that was generated after visiting another market in South Georgia and recognizing the need for a market like this, one where people of all ages could gather in an outdoor setting, enjoy local artists, food (fresh and prepared), with music. The Hiawassee Downtown Development Authority (DDA) knew that such a market aligned with their vision of what was needed in the downtown area and the Night Market was created.
The concept was simple: offer art, live music, games, and food in an open outdoor setting that would be welcoming for guests of all ages. The artisans, growers, and food at the market are remarkable. We hope that you will visit the Night Market and savor all that is homegrown and handmade! Make sure to bring your lawn chair to sit a spell and enjoy the live music. Always free admission and parking is free too! Don’t forget to stop by the DDA booth to say hello, we look forward to seeing you at the Market! The Night Market runs May-October, starting at 5PM on the First Friday of each month.
