For the fourth year, an exciting local farmer’s market & organic/all natural market will be held on Sunday September 1st (as a special event in conjunction with the annual apple festival). You will find a variety of local growers and all natural and organic vendors offering their healthy products for sale on Market Street in front of the Historic Train Depot in Hendersonville. Included in the market will be locally grown fruits, vegetables, dairy products, meats and more. Support your local growers and organic vendors and taste the difference today!
The Apple Valley Model RR Club will be open the entire day to allow folks to tour their facilities inside the depot and enjoy seeing the many intricate train displays. Norfolk Southern will have their Exhibit car parked on the tracks behind the Depot. It is a restored passenger car which houses interactive exhibits about the history and operations on the Norfolk Southern system. It will be open to the public free of charge to walk thru and enjoy. Visitors can take this great opportunity to stroll along the Avenue and become acquainted with all the exciting new businesses that have become part of the growing Historic Seventh Avenue district.
We would like to thank the sponsors of the 7th Avenue Farmer’s Market, which are: Duke Energy, WTZQ, WHKP, Underground Bakery, and the Hendersonville Co-Op.
Background Information on Historic Seventh Avenue
Seventh Avenue originally developed as a commercial district during the late 19th and early 20th centuries around Hendersonville’s first train depot, which was established in 1879. The majority of the buildings are simple one and two-story brick commercial and warehouse structures in the typical pattern of buildings connecting to each other. There are thirty-two contributing structures in the district. This area is currently undergoing revival as a viable commercial area. You are invited to come to 7th Avenue and see the new businesses occupying this revitalized historic area.
