More than 300 people came out to Three Rivers Market Saturday to take part in its second annual Community Supported Agriculture Fair.

Seventeen farms from across East Tennessee gathered in the Three Rivers' parking lot to tell customers about what they would be selling this year.

CSA farmers said customers like dealing with them because they know exactly where their food is coming from.

"Interest has definitely picked up even in the last two or three years as you can see here, it's incredibly popular and we've had a really good turnout," said Kat Zemmel, of A Place in their Heart farm.

According to Three Rivers Market, turnout was three times greater than numbers last year.  The store said more than 300 people attended the fair.
