Celebrating its 25th year, TFM officially begins Thursday and ends Sunday. Market officials say the buzz surrounding the silver anniversary has led to strong buyer registration and exhibitor interest.

The market said earlier this month it expects its best attendance in nearly 10 years.

More than 100 new exhibitors will show at the market, and seven companies expanded their showrooms.

“We’re excited about this market and the interest that’s been shown,” said TFM Chairman V.M. Cleveland.
