You can shop 'till you drop, eat 'till you're full, and tap your toes to bluegrass at this Sunday's Chattanooga Market.

It's Mountain View Bluegrass Day at First Tennessee Pavilion, and the market will host the Bluegrass Pharoahs and the Barker Brothers.

The Bluegrass Pharaohs perform traditional, contemporary and original bluegrass music. Their musical scope ranges from Monroe and Stanley to Alison Krauss and Clair Lynch, from Flatt and Scruggs and Jimmy Martin to U2 and Fleetwood Mac.

The Barker Brothers incorporate an eclectic mix of bluegrass, Americana and contemporary folk music, as well as their own innovations in their performances. They won a Telly Award in 2009 for a performance on "The Heart of the Home," a syndicated cable production, and recent appearances include the CBS "Sunday Morning" show.

The market's vendors will offer lettuces, fruits, squash, zucchini, beans, corn and other produce of the season. Fresh breads, meats, cheeses and ready-to-eat foods also are plentiful.

The Master Gardeners of Hamilton County will be at the market from 1 to 2 p.m. showcasing the Chattanooga Area Food Bank's Evelyn Davenport Navarre Teaching and Enabling Garden. Information will be available on the programs being taught by the food bank's staff and volunteers, including the new BUGS Program, an urban garden initiative for area youth.
