There are many reasons. It was the first step in reviving local agriculture. It has a long history of providing a broad variety of fresh, low spray/no spray food at reasonable prices. Many of our summer visitors look forward to coming to it. It is creating new jobs for working people and is helping to broaden our economy. It keeps money at home. It strengthens our sense of community. And, it is fun!

All local, all organic, lots of variety in the vegetables offered plus fresh meats, seafood, crafts and music. A great place to buy healthy food and socialize with friends and neighbors. And no one else has Harry to declare the market open.

It's simply the best group of vendors and customers in the mountains. We have the best of local food, handmade crafts, music and an amazing community.

Yummy local food! The abundant variety of just picked veggies, eggs, meats, goat's milk, baked goodies, and beautiful craftmanship. I love our black mountain community and being able to support fellow neighbors and see friendly faces at the start of my weekend makes me happy.

It's close, shady, grassy, dog-friendly, and has everything--fish, lamb, chicken, veggies, crafts, coffee, etc. Super-friendly, the Saturday meeting place. Not too small, not too big--JUST RIGHT!

The produce is consistently fresh, tasty and plentiful. The variety beats other markets and it's local. I like eating food grown in the same soil and air as I grown on.
