Visit one of four regional Farmers Markets owned by the State of North Carolina and operated by the NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services.
The WNC Farmers Market is set on a 36-acre site overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Biltmore Estate. Year-round, retail vendors offer a variety of farm fresh produce, canned goods, honey, nursery items and hand crafted goods.
There are five open-air truck sheds to provide 194 spaces for farmers and dealers to display top quality produce at reasonable prices. One truck shed is specifically designated for certified farmers who sell what they grow direct to the consumer. The market has a small dealers building and two large wholesale buildings consisting of more than 38,000 square feet. These buildings offer produce year round to grocery stores, restaurants, institutions, and roadside markets. This area is open 24 hours, seven days a week.
Conveniently located off I-26 and I-40, it’s located at 570 Brevard Rd. in Asheville. It’s open daily, year-round from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contact them at 828.253.1691 for summer events or for more information.
