Come to the market ready for surprises! One of the marvelous aspects of shopping at any farmer’s market is the variety not only of produce but vendors. The following are regular vendors at the market but they are by no means inclusive of everyone you will find at the market

  • Local honey, including Whistle Creek Apiaries Tulip Poplar Honey, featured in Edible Blue Ridge magazine
