Holiday Farmers Markets to showcase Hendersonville producers and artisans

Press release from City of Hendersonville:

Two Holiday Farmers Markets will bring seasonal, farm-fresh products and locally made artisan crafts to the area’s residents and visitors just in time for the holiday season. Hosted by the Hendersonville Farmers Market, the Holiday Markets will take place outdoors on November 28 and December 5 from 9 am until 1 pm at the Historic Train Depot in the Seventh Avenue District. Marketgoers will find their favorite regular season vendors from Hendersonville Farmers Market offering seasonal food products, baked goods, and more, in addition to a plethora of handmade artisan crafts. Live music entertainment will be provided by Apple Country String Band at both events.

“We’re excited to bring back many of our regular season vendors, plus an abundance of talented local artisans, for two festive Saturdays,” said Hendersonville Farmers Market Manager Meredith Friedheim. “This is a great opportunity for shoppers to look locally for unique gifts and holiday decorations, as well as to stock their pantries with feast-worthy baked goods and seasonal food items.” More than 25 vendors are currently signed up to participate, half of which are craft vendors.

In addition to the Holiday Markets, downtown Hendersonville merchants will be promoting Small Business Saturday on November 28, and on December 5 Main Street businesses will celebrate with a holiday-themed “Whoo Loves Hendo” closed-street event.

Masks are required at the Holiday Markets, pursuant to a statewide mandate.
