The people selling their goods come right out of the hills of western North Carolina. You can ask any questions you want and get home remedies for what ails you. The food and flower choices are beyond any where. You will find something that you have to plant in your garden. Everyone has apple butter but do they have apple... More

Maybe it's a seasonal thing, but for this area I expected more. Heavy on arts and crafts; not so much meat and produce.

Our Asheville tour stopped here. The market was created by the Vanderbilts to promote local farmers and crafts. There is an area where local truck farmers bring produce but the area where tours will go comprises many stalls selling not so local produce and gift items. You could take home a carload of jams, pickles and preserves but We see... More

In addition to a very nice selection of fresh produce, there was a wonderful offering of plants of every kind. Types of very hard to find tomatoes, peppers and herbs. Take something to carry your plants in as it is a hike from the parking areas to the venders. It gets very crowded as the day progresses so go early... More

Whether were looking for good watermelons, rhubarb, or green beans to can we always find what we are looking for. We have been shopping it for a long time and have learned who has the best produce and where they set up. But if we can't find them we always like to try a new vendor. Most of them are... More

This is truly one of my very favorite stops in Asheville, NC! There is a huge garden shop with flowers, plants, shrubs and trees. There are endless rows of vendors with fresh fruits and veggies, homemade jellies, jams, preserves, arts, crafts, and merchandise. And it's reasonably priced! Pleasant and courteous vendors. Rain or shine, this is the place to visit!

This was my first time there and really enjoyed it. Just be careful if you are entering off of I-40. The signage when you make a left turn can be a bit confusing. I went in the wrong way. Didn't mean to but the signs were all bunched together and wasn't clear until it's too late.

This is a sorry excuse for a farmers' market. If you have ever been to the farmers' markets Portland, Oregon, Ithaca, NY or even in Union Square in NYC you will be disappointed by this one. Yes, there is an area for restaurants to buy produce but the 'retail area' is unimaginative and uninteresting.

WNC Farmer's Market is delightful! If you go, make sure to visit Teague's Corner. The owner and workers there are very polite. The produce is fresh, the crafts are great, and the bakery in Shed One has delicious items!
