Troutman Farmers Market opens for new season
BY DEBBIE PAGE
The Troutman Farmers Market opened for the season on Tuesday with a steady stream of visitors for the vendors. The market will continue each Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. through the end of October, with expanded produce offerings as the growing season develops.
The market provides a comfortable, friendly location for consumers, farmers, and artisans to buy and sell a variety of domestic fruits, vegetables, plants, meats, honey, and natural homemade goods. All items for sale help support and sustain the local farm and artisan community, with no flea market type items allowed.
Only vendors who sell produce or products that they themselves grow or make are allowed to sell at the market. No middle men vendors or resellers are permitted in order to promote the grow, buy and eat local philosophy of the market.
Special programs to enhance the market customer experience are now being planned for the summer, including music, yoga, and other activities.
