Bartlett Farmers Market

The Bartlett Farmers Market began in 2011 to provide our citizens fresh produce, delicious foods and locally made crafts. The Market has grown into a hub for social activity and healthy lifestyle choices. We look forward to each season with great excitement by bringing back our loyal vendors while adding new events and programing to grow our Market.

Retail & Hospitality

The Bartlett area has the highest concentration of retail shopping and hotel/motel beds in the entire Memphis region. The primary commercial hub for the area is Wolfchase Galleria, a Simon Mall that contains more than 100 tenants including four anchors with a total retail footprint of 1.25 million square feet. Radiating from this hub is almost every recognizable retail chain, both regional and national retailers.

Although the Bartlett area is already a strong retail center, it is by no means saturated. There are numerous locations on and off the main arteries that offer attractive opportunities for retailers seeking general and niche customers.

Because of its abundant retail offerings and proximity to downtown Memphis (15 miles), this area attracts thousands of overnight visitors. More than 30 national and regional hotel/motels are located along the I-40 Corridor primarily at the Germantown Parkway and Sycamore View Exits. Many guests stay in Bartlett while visiting Memphis and the Mid-South region. There's a wide assortment of restaurants throughout the Corridor catering to all tastes and age groups.

Bartlett Station

The community from which the City of Bartlett grew was first called Union Depot, now referred to as Bartlett Station. In 1829, it was the last major stage coach station in Tennessee before reaching Memphis.  When the Memphis & Ohio Railroad (now CSX Railroad) took the place of the stage coaches, Bartlett continued as a depot.

As Bartlett’s first commercial center and site of its historic district, Bartlett Station holds a special place for the community. It is also the only commercial area of Bartlett with an incentive program designed to maintain its original small town atmosphere and charm. Unique retailers, restaurants, and gift shops will find Bartlett Station an ideal place to do business.
