Lincoln County Farmers Markets Open

Real Estate Agent with Lincolnton, NC

The Lincoln County Farmers Market at Denver opened on May 1st. It will again be located at Rock Springs Elementary School on Highway 16. The Denver market will continue to operate on a Saturday only basis throughout the season.

Last year, about sixty different vendors sold at the market. Some were there a lot while others came only once or twice. Organizers are hoping for a good opening day selection including strawberries, asparagus, cut flowers, meat, eggs, lettuce, and a variety of crafts. More customers generate more vendors, which in turn generates even more customers and so on; it is another way to support local growers & small businesses.

Even small purchases will encourage vendors to come back. Locally raised meat tends to be somewhat of a challenge for sellers. Even though it is of very high quality, it has to be sold for a higher price than most meat sold in a grocery store. Ask yourself if you can make a commitment to buy local meat one more time per month than you normally do. That could really add up for meat sellers and keep them coming back.

The farmers market in downtown Lincolnton (225 West Water Street) has already opened for the season. Right now, they are open only on Saturday mornings beginning at 7:00 a.m. But on Tuesday, June 1, they will begin operating on the full schedule of Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings.

I encourage you to come out and support our market vendors. If you have questions about either location of the Farmers Market, please call Cooperative Extension at 704-736-8452 or
