Important Information Regarding our Annual Craft Jury

Because our market is first and foremost a farmers market with a mission to provide access to local produce, meats and other agricultural products, our market policy limits the number of craft vendors.

Unfortunately, we will not be accepting new craft vendors for the coming 2018 market season at this time.  Please check back for updates as this may change as we bring on new growers and producers.

Lori Goodman, Market Manager

 

Craft Jury Information

The Ashe County Farmers Market Board of Directors are currently reviewing our craft policies along with our jury process and our procedures for admitting new craft vendors.

A jury date for the coming season will not be set until this process is complete in late March.  Best guess is that a jury date will be the end of March or early April.  Keep checking back for more information.
