The Blowing Rock Farmers Market returns Thursday, May 21, and will run every Thursday until Sept. 24, from 3-6 p.m.. The farmers market is located on Park Avenue in downtown Blowing Rock.
The Blowing Rock Farmers Market will include familiar vendors including Summer Fresh Flower Farm, Trebuchet Hill, Blue Goat Dairy, as well as new vendors this year, BFR Beef and B & L Farms Produce.
“We are excited to have the Farmers Market back for another season. Especially right now, it is a sign that the summer season is starting” said Suzy Barker of the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce.
The Farmers Market is implementing new rules for farmers and customers to prevent the spread of illness. The market received a grant from ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project) to print informational signs to display in the market area to promote safe practices. Additionally, vendors have been asked to wear masks, sanitize their booth often and will not be allowed provide samples to customers.
