Fresh in Fairview
The school bell again rings at Fairview Elementary and the bountiful spread continues of artisan cheeses, locally-roasted gourmet coffee, and cupcakes so famous they’ve been nationally televised. The school parking lot is home to the Fairview Farmers Market, which has now expanded from the first Saturday to the first and third Saturdays of each month, May through October, from 9 am to noon.
You can also nosh while you’re looking through the delicious nibbles, maybe enjoy a cup of Dynamite Roasting coffee and a sweet treat from Ruth and Ranshaw. The bakery, located just west of the school on Charlotte Highway, has been featured on the Cooking Channel’s “Unique Sweets.” Each market also features some non-edible local creations including handmade jewelry and pottery.
