Description:

Remember the days when the small community market stores in Mitchell County were thriving and a farmer could drive into town, drop his tailgate and sell his produce?

In keeping with the traditions of that era that fostered a close-knit, caring, and cooperative mountain culture, the Main Street Farmer's Market offers variety of local produce & products. Its location, which once housed a tomato-packing facility and later a recycling center, is rooted in service to the community.

The Main Street Market offers a diverse, multi-generational blend of old timers and newcomers, and features a variety of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables produced through both conventional and organic practices, and often including heirloom varieties.

New items for 2013: jewelry (paper & metal), crocheted crafts, pottery, nursery plants, herbal plants, sewn items.
