About Gourmet’s Market

For the past 40 years, Knoxville’s Gourmets Market has been a destination for East Tennessee foodies. With an all new menu, expanded catering services, facility rentals, and a major expansion that nearly tripled the size of Gourmet’s Market’s main dining room, the restaurant continues to be the East Tennessee destination.

When it opened in 1978, enthusiasts raved about Gourmets Market’s selection of hard-to-find cheeses, meats, coffees, teas, and cooking utensils. In recent years, the restaurant has grown an even larger following of customers who enjoy the restaurant’s creative cuisine.

Founded by Richard and Barbara Strehlow and managed for years by their son Eric Nelson, Gourmet’s Market established a reputation as an eclectic gathering spot for coffee and conversation, a light snack or a full-blown meal. Nelson emphasized Gourmet’s Market’s casual atmosphere and locally-grown natural ingredients that attracted college students, business people, and families from all parts of East Tennessee.

Holly Hambright

Chef Holly Hambright, a well-known and respected local chef, has a long history with Gourmet’s Market. Beginning as a pastry chef, Holly cooked at fine establishments around the country before, in 2000, returning to Knoxville. Here, she began work at Gourmets Market and quickly gained a reputation for flavor-filled foods that tempted taste buds from miles around. As that reputation grew, Holly began her own catering business, Holly’s Eventful Dining, that quickly expanded into offering lunch and weekend dinner service at her original Homberg location. Fast forward to 2015, and an investment group lead by Holly purchased Gourmets Market and Holly was once again at home!

At the time, Chef Holly said, “I am so happy to be returning to my Knoxville roots at Gourmet’s Market and Cafe,”. “While many of my original dishes remain on the menu to this day, we will focus on tweaking and adding new and exciting dishes and services including expanding our catering offering and the new Home Replacement Meal (HMR) services for those that would like to have ready-to-heat meals in their own home. I can’t thank the people Knoxville enough for giving me to opportunity to serve them!”
