End of July and the Market is bursting!

Good morning Market goers!

Don’t forget to do your weekly meat and veggie and fruit (blueberries!) shopping tomorrow morning from 9-12 in downtown Sylva at the Glorious Jackson County Farmers Market. Find us at Bridge Park. While you’re at it, pick up your dairy needs as well including eggs, milk, butter and cheese. And you might as well add to that your herbal remedy needs, all-natural cleaning supplies, as well as granola, baked goods, native plants, cut flowers, wooden toys, cloth toys, pottery, bird feeders, and so much more. You’ll just have to come on down and check it out!

Taste of The Market

FM week 2016

Circle the date on the calendar: Saturday, August 13th, is our annual customer appreciation morning at the Farmers Market. It gets better. It’s also our monthly Market Feast Fundraiser featuring produce from the farm of The Dawson Green. Neil Dawson will be cooking up some amazing foods from everybody’s favorite summer gem: tomatoes. Green tomatoes. Yep. You may be surprised what culinary delights you can create before those Cherokee Purples or Better Girls start turning red.

USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack has officially declared August 7 through August 13, 2016 as the 17th annual National Farmers Market Week, to celebrate the farmers, ranchers and local food businesses as well as the communities that support them. Jackson County Farmers Market is one of more than 8,500 farmers markets around the country, which gives us a lot to celebrate.

We’re gearing up for a great day at the Market so stayed tuned for more info and plan to join us on the 13th!

No Market Manager on the scene (camping) so be sure to check the sign to find out which vendor will have the debit/credit/SNAP machine in exchange for Market Tokens.

Enjoy a Saturday with Local!!
