 Our Apple Fundraiser Continues Saturday
Our popular Apple Fundraiser is in full swing. This year, because of a late freeze that damaged apple trees and blooms at Davis & Son Orchard in Lincoln County, some apples sold at our fundraiser will come from apple grower Dale Lamb of Ottanola Farms, a highly respected, generations-old, family owned orchard in Hendersonville. So, while some apples will be sourced outside of the market's usual 50-mile product radius, all will be North Carolina grown apples.  We hope to have apples available through Thanksgiving.
Fall Plant and Garden Day is September 27

The turkeys will be ready for pick up at the farmers' market on November 25 at our special evening Thanksgiving Market. The birds will have been processed the night before and will be sold fresh.
