Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market, powered by Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture, is returning for the 2020-2021 Winter Market season. Due to COVID-19, vendors will be spread throughout the parking lot, Agricultural Conference Center, and Warehouse with a system of one-way customer foot-traffic, customer counting, and mask requirements for both customers and vendors. Upon arrival to the market, you will be greeted by Market Staff and plenty of maps to help you navigate this new system.
The Boone Winter Farmers' Market offers a wide range of local products such as fresh produce, meats, bouquets, pottery, prepared foods and preserves, honey, homemade body products, herbal remedies, chocolate, coffee, and so much more!
Farmers’ markets are essential ways for our community to access local food. After several weeks of working with our partners across our region, the Town of Boone, and the Watauga County Farmers’ Market, BRWIA developed new protocols that will ensure that farmers, consumers, and our community are supported during this pandemic. Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market will look different from the typical Winter Farmers’ Market, but it will still have flavorful and nutrient-dense local foods available.
The Boone Winter Farmers' Market offers an indoor and outdoor retail space to local farmers and producers during the winter months and provides community members an opportunity to continue to access quality, local products from December through April, when many other venues are not available.
Established by PHARMIN in 2015, this market is now in it's 5th year of operation! This year, Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture (BRWIA) has taken over management responsibilities for the market with the support of the PHARMIN crew.
You'll find many of your favorite vendors and perhaps some new faces as well! Hatchet coffee and hot cocoa are provided on a donation basis at each market along with live musical performances.
The market takes place at the Watauga Agricultural Conference Center, in Boone, every Saturday, 9am-12pm from December through April and features a wide variety of fresh veggies & greens, meats, eggs, value-added products, baked goods, crafts and more!
