Market Opening Day
The Mills River Farmers Market will open on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at 8 AM.  The Market will be held at the G&B Energy Plaza located at 5046 Boylston Highway in Mills River, NC. The Mills River Farmers Market offers fresh and local produce, eggs, breads and baked goods, coffee, cheeses, fresh cut flowers, meats, jams & jellies, handmade arts & crafts, and more! We will have live music throughout the season,  and for our opening day, bring your kite and fly it in the field beside our market!  We are planning to have kite experts on site! Come meet our friendly vendors and spoil yourself on the offerings our local producers have grown and made. We have scheduled many different entertainment and educational events throughout the market season.  Be sure to visit weekly so you can enjoy everything the market has to offer.  The market will run every Saturday morning from 8-12 through the end of October.  We now have the ability to accept DEBIT and CREDIT cards, and EBT/SNAP.  For questions please call 828-891-3332.
