This is the place you must go to purchase your veggies and fruits. The selection is fanstatic, the sellers polite and helpful, and the prices are very resonable. I would suggest checking the stalls on the 2nd level as they are more competitive than on the first level. I am sure the indoor stalls cost the seller more to rent.

We made this trip from Hendersonville,North Carolina expecting to find more variety and better prices then the grocery store. We did not. $3 for a single scoop of ice cream? $16 for a gallon of apple cider? We ended up buying some local produce and candy for the kids, but overall rather disappointing.

This was actually a destination for a day long distance test drive of our new car. Definitely going back with better planning of staying longer and seeing/buying more. Be sure to read the website to see what all is available to see. I love that it is open 7 days a week as we don't have typical weekends off. You... More

Wow! The WNC Farmer's Market is huge. The biggest farmer's market I had attended prior to this was a once a week, summer-fall, street tailgate/booth affair along several blocks or a weekend affair like Cincinnati's Findlay Market. WNC Farmer's market has wholesale and retail produce sheds you drive around and select your produce from plus a garden & nursery center... More

Fun thing to do on a hot summer afternoon in Asheville. Be sure to stop by the moose café just around the corner for lunch

Open year round with seasonal vegetables and fruit. Also, local crafts, homemade canning. There is also a little cafe and ice cream shop in upper lever. The first two buildings are retail. The area behind these buildings are wholesale and carry different items. You can buy local plants, herbs, quilts and much more.

We stopped by Western North Carolina Farmers Market on an overnight trip. Wanted some fresh vegetables. Prices were reasonable and vegetables were available even though it was early in the season. There was a great garden center. You need to drive by all the various vendors. Plan on going back when more vegetables are in season. Take a few minutes... More

The Western NC Farmers Market in Asheville is a great place to shop. Many of the Jams, Jellies, Candies, Crafts, etc, sold at all the downtown shops are also sold here, and at a much lower price! The retail part is several long building so be prepared to park and walk.

Although the prices are decent overall and it's under cover, we weren't impressed with the selection or the size of the market, especially considering everything we've heard from others. We've been to markets with a much better selection of home made items and other types of things before. btw, skip the meat from 3 cowgirls. Three of the toughest, most... More
