The Winter Farmers Market @ Rutherford County Farmers Market

We are fortunate in our area to live with such natural abundance. Local farmers are a resource we’re wise to support. The Winter Farmers Market runs from 10-1 on the first and third Saturdays of each month, through April. The market meets outdoors this year but is heated for the winter months. Go get some fresh produce or some local honey and treat yourself to a healthier lifestyle while helping our local economy. Shop local, feed your farmer!
