On Saturday, September 23 from 8 am to 12 pm the Ashe County Extension Master Gardener volunteers join us at the market to answer your questions about saving seeds. Bring in your spent plant heads to learn how to save seeds for next year’s garden.
Ashe County Farmers Market. Always fresh. Always local.
Our mid-season Wednesday Market has struggled for many years. Although we do have a couple of produce vendors who have attended regularly with mid-week produce and several loyal Wednesday market customers, many of our market vendors simply do not have the the time, staff or produce to attend two weekly markets and choose to focus their time and attention on our Saturday market.
In an effort to increase both vendors and customers and revive this market, we decided to try changing the hours of our Wednesday market to 4-6 PM. The time change did not achieve the results intended. Consequently, we have abandoned our formal Wednesday market hours and have advised our current market vendors with excess produce who wish to sell mid-week to drop in Wednesday mornings between the hours of 8 am to 12 noon.
Our Saturday market continues to thrive and we have abundant produce weekly from local growers. The Saturday market remains open through the end of October.
What’s bugging you in the garden?? Bring plant samples and or close up photos of your problem plants to the market on July 15. The Extension Master Gardener volunteers are hosting a Plant Clinic from 9 am to 12 pm.
