“Asheville Farmers Market: Where the restaurants buy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Went to the Asheville Farmers Market in August and was very impressed. Extensive fruit and vegetable stands, with excellent quality and reasonable prices. There is a retail area and a separate area where the city's restaurants and commercial businesses purchase each day. It is clean, well lit, and the vendors are very friendly. There are some items from outside the area if they are out of season locally. I do not know how the selection or hours may vary throughout the year.

“Delightfult tastes, colors and bargain prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

This farmers market rates up there, ok not as large as the Union Square FM, NYC, but super fresh and delectable! Shop where the farm to table chefs shop. Try a fresh pretzel or vegan frozen yogurt, Yummy!

“Small and poor quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is not worth the hype. Very small and the stands are all repetitive. Also did not feel it was very clean and many of the booths were old and dust laden. Does not compare at all to the market in Charleston. This is very low end in feel.

“Good spot for fresh produce”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

This is a logical choice for the freshest produce in the area. However, this is not the best farmers market I have ever been to by a long shot! Forget anything except produce here. Cheeses are run of the mill, breads are average. Stick with locally grown items.

“Great local produce!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We love this place! Huge veggies, local and fresh, some of the best fruit we've ever had. Local Amish cheeses and butter. Hand made local crafts, candy, and OH MY the jams are fabulous! Be sure to go down the hill to the commercial local growers if you want big quantities.
