Fairview Farmer’s Market
The Fairview Farmers Market is off to a good start this season with great local produce and craft vendors. Cane Creek Creamery has been a big hit so far, introducing their new cheeses and ice cream to the community. If you haven’t visited their new creamery yet, it is certainly worth the short drive down Cane Creek road to try their ice cream and cheese.
A new produce vendor at the market this year is Jah Works Farm. They are a young family starting a farm that specializes in sweet and hot peppers. They sell an incredible line of sauces made from their many species of peppers, from sweet and mild to spicy and hot. As always, Flying Cloud Farm is providing an abundance of fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and vegetable starts. Flying Cloud Farm has a great diversity of produce at the market and at their Farm Stand on Highway 74, including squash, carrots, garlic, late season greens, and best of all… beans of all sorts!
Also new this year, Jim Smith is hosting a table to educate market goers about The Lord’s Acre, Food for Fairview, The Welcome Table, The Garden Tour and easy ways to prepare the local produce they buy at the market.
As summer sets in and local farms become their most productive, we really encourage the community to come out to the Farmers Market, visit with neighbors and buy some great local produce. There are great local crafts this season also, including Lindsay Bostic pottery, Yancey Davis metal works and Evolutions jewelry, to name a few. Last but not least, if you’re looking for edible plants for your home and garden, the Garden Spot is selling a great variety of berry plants and other fruits as well.
The Farmers Market is open the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month through October, 9 am–12 pm at Fairview Elementary School. Come out and enjoy the Fairview Farmers Market on Saturday, July 2 and July 16!
