Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market, powered by Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture, returns to Boone on Saturday, April 4th after several weeks of being closed due to COVID-19.
Operating from 9-12 PM at Daniel Boone Park, Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market offers fresh, healthy food for the High Country community.
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 — in an outdoor setting — will look different from the typical Winter Farmers’ Market, but it will still have flavorful and nutrient-dense local foods available.
Customers are encouraged to shop and return home to enjoy their delicious local food purchases.
For more information and posts about featured vendors, customers are encouraged to follow Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market Facebook page: www.facebook.com/BooneWinterFM/
The Boone Winter Farmers' Market offers an indoor 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 3rd 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!
