Image of produceFarmers market season is here! Plan a shopping trip and get out to the farmers market to see the amazing food that area farmers are raising. You’ll be impressed by the variety and quality. Not only will you be able to buy delicious produce, eggs, meats, cheeses, pickles, sauces, baked goods, jams and jellies, but you’ll meet some very friendly farmers who love what they do. Farmers markets are places where you can buy delicious, fresh food, talk to the farmer that raised it, and get to know your neighbors better. With over 11 farmers markets held weekly, Winston-Salem is a community growing around healthy, fresh food!

When you shop the farmers market, you can talk to the hands that tended the food you are purchasing. What could be better? Know your farmer, know your food.

There are at least eleven farmers markets, including one each in Kernersville and Clemmons, one in King, the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market in Colfax and several in Winston-Salem. There is a market held almost every day of the week somewhere in our area. Additionally, several of the area hospitals and medical facilities host regular farmers markets for their employees and patients. Now is a great time to get out and visit our farmers markets to buy locally grown fresh vegetables and fruits. When you shop at the farmers market you are supporting our local small farmers and food entrepreneurs. You can ask the farmer about how the produce you are buying was grown, when it was harvested, and even how to use it. There are several markets which accept SNAP/EBT and WIC.
