Come enjoy all we have to offer, including live music, cooking demonstrations by top local chefs and family activities!

We had a great start to our Annual Apple Fundraiser last Saturday. We had four varieties - Honey Crisp, Gala, Gold Supreme and Ginger Gold - all locally grown by Davis and Son Orchard in Lincoln County, NC. We'll have more again this Saturday and for several weeks through the Fall. The market has brought in these locally grown apples to sell as a fundraiser for the farmers' market. This effort makes an in-demand product available to our customers and helps support a local farmer who cannot be at the market due to heavy on-farm sales. In light of the peach crop being drastically reduced this year, we are relying even more on a successful apple fundraiser. Please support the market and pick up your bag this Saturday.

Although some of your favorite summer crops are waning, there are still lots of summer fare to be had. Figs may only be around for a couple more weeks, so get them while you can. You'll also find watermelon, peppers, eggplant, green beans, southern peas, garlic and cukes, to name but a few. Drop by and check out nature's bounty!
