The Yancey County Farmers’ Market offers a wide variety of local products – fresh produce, local plants, crafts, meats and cheeses, baked goods, and more. From April through December, come visit with local producers and get fresh and unique local products. Saturday mornings at the Burnsville Town Center.
The Farmers’ Market has been a local tradition for over 20 years. It operates both indoors and outdoors at the Burnsville Town Center from late April through December. Market hours are 8:30 to 12:30 each Saturday morning during the season.
The market offers a source of high quality, fresh, farm-produced and farm-related products. Everything sold at the market is locally grown/prepared. Because the market is a “producer” market, visitors can talk directly to the folks who grew or produced the products. They can explain the details of their production techniques and ingredients.
Many of the fresh fruits and vegetables come from farms using natural and organic farming techniques. Offerings vary from week to week as plants and crops mature.
The plants sold by market members are raised from seed or seedlings locally, so they are used to growing in this climate.
The jams and jellies are made by market members, mostly from fruits they grow and harvest on their own land.
The baked goods also feature locally grown products where available, and are all freshly baked for the market.
The crafts are made by local artisans and many feature locally grown items, such as hand painted gourds.
In addition, the market features local honey, meats, and goat cheese – all produced in our area.
Finally, the market offers hot and cold drinks, and a variety of market souvenirs. Special events during the season include cooking demonstrations and tastings, the annual “Tomatofest”, and performances by local musicians.
The Farmers’ Market has become a must-see destination event for locals and visitors alike. Be sure to stop by the market on Saturday morning!
Open late April through December. Market hours are 8:30 to 12:30 each Saturday morning during the season.
