Last year was a very successful one for the market and the 2012 season is off to a great start with a high number of vendors turning out for the March Expo registration event.
The Ashe County Farmers’ Market offers fresh seasonal produce, a wide variety of nursery items, flowers and plants, locally raised meats, artisan cheeses, homemade breads and pastries, honey, molasses, jams, jellies, as well as fine, locally made arts and crafts.
Throughout the year, visitors will find local musicians playing at the market as well as area chefs cooking up tasty tidbits of locally grown and raised food.
We have several “Special Events” planned for 2012 season such as Fishing Expo, Quilt Day, Fiber Day, and Grilling Demonstrations from local chefs, Apple/Cobbler and Berry Pie Contest, Cake Contest, Tomato/Salsa Day Celebration, Annual BBQ Fundraiser and Halloween Event. Check the website, www.ashefarmersmarket.com, newspapers and radio for the times and dates.
