Vendors at the Hendersonville Farmers Market on Saturday will have farm-fresh products to help put a local feast on your family’s table for Thanksgiving. More than 30 vendors will line Maple Street selling seasonal produce plus locally made artisan crafts. The Mills River Farm Market also promises plenty of holiday season goodies.
