It’s Harvest Time!
As the start of enjoying fresh fruits and vegetable season is upon us, here is great research to find out when your favorites will be available. Please know that actual dates may vary by as much as two weeks due to weather conditions, geographical location of the farm, and other factors. Keep in mind that the climate of western North Carolina, with the mountains, can easily be a month later in the Spring and a month earlier in the Fall, than the warmer coastal areas! It is always a good idea to call a farm earlier than the expected beginning of a season to verify on the status of the product you are interested in.
Remember the Historic Marion Tailgate Market is open on Tuesday evening from 3 to 6 p.m. under the shade shelter on West Henderson Street, downtown Marion. The MGM Farmers Market is open on Thursday evening from 3 to 7 p.m. on the grounds of the Mountain Gateway Museum on 24 Water Street, Old Fort.
