This is a GREAT market. I would recommend not going on Saturdays, just FYI. There are two shelters. The first shelter has ONLY LOCAL farmers and sellers. Go there. The second shelter which is a 'drive-in' shelter that a lot of restaurants use during the week to pick up, is the BULK area and is NOT LOCAL. Going here, you get great prices, but you might as well go to the grocery store as far as selection goes. The inside building with doors has a good mix of both LOCAL and NON LOCAL foods. Most of the meat sold is local, but the produce inside the building usually is not. There is also local NC wines, a NON local bakery, and some other products. There are soaps as well that are locally made, but the ingredients are not necessarily local. There is also an outdoor area that sells peanuts and crafts. There is a whole "store" devoted only to Pork, which is local but not necessarily pasture raised or fed right, so we stick with Mae farms and Rare Earth which are local and sustainable. There are also 3 restaurants, a Grill which is good but I'm not sure it's local, the Farmer's Market Restaurant which is local, and then the Seafood Restaurant which is also local. Both really good.
Go weekly I have been told all nc products. Love meat in the second building, grain fed meats Rainbow Farms, see Joyce's place for homemade jams/jellies and great cheeses and Amish butter.
This place is great!! My family gets most of our produce from here!
