Many consumers are looking to farmer’s markets as a means of accessing fresh, local produce and as a pathway to support farmers and reduce the frequency of grocery store visits.

NC State University has developed a set of food safety guidelines for farmer’s markets to minimize risks amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Market managers and vendors are swiftly working to implement these practices to protect the community. Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP) has been a critical resource for market managers, and has carefully implemented these guidelines as they initiated a new Saturday Market located at AB Tech Community College’s campus in Asheville.

A list of Buncombe County farmer’s markets is below – please check with individual markets as the opening day nears, to ensure locations and timeframes are accurate. Some markets are strategically reserving the first hour of the market for at-risk and senior shoppers.

As other markets update information they will be added to this listing. (Updated May 12, 2020)
