Twenty-five vendors will offer food, produce and crafts at new market

More than 25 vendors will fill Maple Street this Saturday for opening day of the Hendersonville Farmers Market.


Shoppers can purchase products ranging from locally grown produce and meat, fresh coffee, baked goods, cut flowers, plants and artisan crafts. Hola Community Arts will be serving up tamales, salsa and cupcakes – part of a season-long partnership with the farmers market to promote low-income food entrepreneurs.

Hendersonville Farmers Market will take place each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Historic Depot on Maple Street until Oct. 31, with two holiday markets slated for Nov. 28 and Dec. 5.

The Hendersonville Farmers Market has taken the SafeHendo pledge and will require vendors, staff and volunteers to wear face masks. Vendor booths will be spaced 10 feet apart, and everyone on the grounds will be encouraged to honor the Three Ws: Wear a cloth face covering, Wait six feet apart, and Wash your hands often or use sanitizer.

As the COVID-19 outlook begins to look brighter, the market will gradually implement originally envisioned components such as live music, kids’ activities and special events.
