Do you like finding great farmers markets, where you can buy local produce, flowers, plants, and countless other great things on a weekend morning, or a weekday afternoon? I do too. Let’s compare notes on the markets we’ve each found, so we can support these local resources together.
There are numerous farmers markets around our community and many more around the country.
In 1994, just fewer than 2,000 farmers markets were registered in the USDA Farmers Market Directory. That number has grown rapidly to more than 8,600 markets in 2017.*
At farmers markets, farmers can receive upwards of 90 cents on the dollar.*
Even better, are you interested in creating your own delicious piece of garden?
Please connect with me any time, and let’s talk about our favorite farmers markets, urban farming, and other solutions.

Here in Yancey County alone there are a number of CSA farms (Community Supported Agriculture) that take memberships from Spring through Fall and supply families with fresh grown, organic produce. Burnsville’s Farmers Market is on Saturdays and is quite diverse!
