Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market will have a festival in conjunction with the long-awaited arrival of summer corn and tomatoes from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 17.
The market has been bustling for weeks with colorful produce, homemade bread, cheese, eggs, fish and meat, plus locally made crafts. This weekend, vendors will pull out all the stops with food samples, including marinated and grilled pork and vegetable kebobs, grilled fish, fried green tomatoes and blackberry cobbler. There will be live music by Allan McRae and The Waynesville Wildcats.
“We’re working hard to make Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market the best market in Western North Carolina,” said Carol James, president of the market’s board of directors. “We’re currently one of the largest markets in the area, second only to Asheville City Market.”
Haywood’s Historic Farmers’ Market is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of HART Theater on U.S. 276 a few blocks down from Main Street in Waynesville.
