Farmers market says goodbye to summer

out chicken girlIt is time to pack up and move indoors. Saturday Nov. 27 marks the last weekend of the season that the Jackson County Farmers Market will be held outdoors. The market is located in the Bridge Park parking lot from 9 a.m. to noon.

The Family Art at the Market will be making hats with kids under the pavilion starting at 10 a.m. There will be a hat parade at 11:30 a.m.

Starting Nov. 3, you can find the market during the same hours at the Community Table, now at its new location on Central Street over the bridge and through the Poteet Park parking lot.

Not all vendors will move indoors for the winter, but there will be a good selection of vegetables, meats, eggs, botanicals and crafts available at the indoor market. Last year, the market had vegetables all winter long because of Balltown Bee Farm in Swain County and Shared Blessings Farm in Tuckasegee. 828.631.3033 or jacksoncountyfarmersmarket.wordpress.com.
