KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

Thanksgiving Day is just around the corner and the Kingsport Farmers' Market is looking to give back to the community during this holiday season.

We learned they will be providing a meal on Thanksgiving Day at 11 a.m. inside of the farmers market, where they will provide turkey and all of the dressings for anyone in need or alone on Thanksgiving; everyone is welcome, however.

Market manager Jim Lafollette tells News 5 they plan to feed up to 750 people on a first-come, first-serve basis. "There are so many people this day and time that need help. Maybe a little boost around the holidays can get them started on the right path to a better holiday," said Lafollette.

The Farmers' Market is hoping to continue this tradition for years to come.
