Joe Kindred, chef-owner of Kindred in Davidson (Yes, the restaurant that made Bon Appetit's national Top Ten Best New Restaurants List this month!) will show you how to make great dishes using late summer produce. He'll start at 9am in the chef's tent.
Meanwhile,  enjoy old-time, sting band music played by Carol Raedy and Friends on the music platform.
Big Red peaches and Gala and Golden Supreme apples - delicious bites any way you slice 'em! Pee Dee Orchard in Wadesboro was able to pick one last peach variety this week, giving our Peach Fundraiser an encore this Saturday even though our Apple Fundraiser, with apples from Davis & Son Orchard in Lincoln County, is already underway. And, so, for the first time ever, we will be able to offer you these fabulous late summer and early fall fruits at the same time. Come to market this Saturday and scoop up some of each!
All profits from each fundraiser go to support the market's operating budget and pay for market maintenance and improvements.
