If you're looking for something to do on a weekend day where you want to kill 1-2 hours, I'd highly recommend the State Farmer's Market. With many places to explore on the grounds, you'll find vendors that sell things from corn, sweet potatoes, and many other NC grown foods that are in season. The permanent stand building that houses the... More

Friends who live nearby brought me here...what fun and a fantastic way to bring in fall! A huge collection of plants, food and it's here every day. Parking was plentiful, grounds were clean and everything was beautifully displayed. Produce, plants, pies, jellies, seafood, crafts--it's all here. Prices were reasonable and, despite it being Sunday morning, the crowds were pleasant and... More

Wow @ the huge pumpkins this year. Let's see, what did I love? Well, from the wide array of harvest there was a bit of everything. First, you must try the fresh seafood restaurant on site! Really enjoyed those oysters and scallops. As for the market, I enjoyed the huge pumpkins, fresh herbs you can plant yourself-I purchased a few:oregeno,lemon... More

As a total plant nerd, this place is my go-to for Saturdays in the summer. Thankfully, they are mostly open in the winter, too. That said, the place is absolutely teeming during growing season. If you like to people watch, go on a Saturday at 10 or 11. If you are all business, go during the week in the morning.... More

My wife and I enjoy taking trips to the Farmer's Market. There is always something interesting to see and tastey to buy. We have always enjoyed the trips to shop there.

I love the big country breakfasts with all of the farm-fresh meats. The sausage is very good and the portions are large. The fresh vegetables are a real plus.

The farmers market offers fruit, vegetables, shrubs, plants, trees and much more. It is a centralized place to find many things. There are some bargains so bring you haggling tools.

The had a good variety of fruits and vegetables. What made it special was they had a very good seafood restaurant, several shops in an enclosed building (Market Shoppes) and several vendors selling baked goods. One of the baked good vendors had excellent cookies. Two of the shops in the enclosed building sold Blenheim ginger ale which I have not... More

We went to attend a wolf pack game on Saturday. Visited the market on Sunday. Lots of venders, reasonable prices. Produce comes from the area. We bought cheese, peaches, tomatoes, ginger root, spinach, kale, bell peppers and a watermelon for under $25. I recommend you try the seafood restraunt at the market. Prices range from $7- $15. Big servings.
