Please note: this page is updated every Thursday evening with relevant information regarding the next Saturday market.
One of our farmers, Holly Tartaglia of Whisper Creek Farm, also happens to be a first grade teacher in Union County. Last Saturday she took a video so her students could learn all about our farmers' market. Please check out the link below. You did a great job, Holly! Thank you!
ANNUAL PEACH FUNDRAISER
Pee Dee Orchards of Lilesville will be delivering the joy of fresh peaches to the market this Saturday. After selling out in less than two hours last Saturday, we have ordered more of the Carored variety.
Until the bell rings at 8am, we ask that you remain outside the market. In light of Governor Cooper's recent relaxation of restrictions (Executive Order 209), we will no longer be implementing our entry control system. Customers will be free to move in and out of the market after the bell is rung at 8am.
Now that NC has lifted the mask mandate entirely and is moving towards fewer pandemic restrictions, we thank you for continuing to wear a mask at MCFM. We may be an open air setting, but adequate social distancing is near impossible in some areas of the market.
You can also avoid lines by pre-ordering and picking up later in the morning.
If you see crowding or several people lined up at one vendor's booth, try completing your other shopping before joining that line, especially if you've already pre-ordered with that vendor.
Please practice healthy and safe shopping and show grace to others as we navigate this new phase.
Local musicians Nick Tutwiler and Friends are back this Saturday. Get your day off to the best possible start by pausing to enjoy some of their Americana folk renditions.
9-11.30 am Central Patio.
Did You Know...?
...Chefs are a catalyst for the market's success and in educating the public about the importance of local foods and supporting local farms
"The chefs who shop at our market and buy from local farmers have been a principal force in driving the local foods movement. They have made the market what it is today and have helped the market continue to grow. They have that platform - through a plate of good food - to educate people. That plate of local food is the window back to the farm. Chefs have an enormous role in advancing the market and making more local food available for you, the consumer." Sam Koenigsberg, New Town Farms
... that the musicians who play so beautifully volunteer their time and talents?
We are so grateful for the enjoyment their music brings and for the opportunity to promote the local arts movement.
