The Transylvania Times -

Holiday Fest And Hours Change At Farmers' Market – Transylvania County, NC


December 5, 2019

The Transylvania Farmers’ Market will celebrate the holiday season with a Holiday Fest this Saturday morning, Dec. 7. The event will also mark the first day of winter hours, as the market will be open from 10 a.m. to noon.

During Holiday Fest, stop by the market info booth for a free cookie from Tastebud Temptations. There will be a “Winter Wonderland Workout,” a scavenger hunt for the kids and they will take home a prize. There will be a hot breakfast and coffee from Global Chef Catering, and dozens of vendors will be set up with holiday decorations and gift options.

Children of all ages (parents and pets too) are invited to come and take a free photo with Santa. The big guy will be arriving a little after 10 a.m., so bring your camera or phone and the market elves will help you take the perfect photo with Santa.

Vendors will have Christmas wreaths, garlands, centerpieces and small potted Christmas trees, as well as a variety of holiday ornaments and decorations. Jams and jellies, vinegars, gourmet mustard, BBQ sauce and pickles, pimiento cheese, handcrafted soaps, jewelry, teas and tinctures, hand-carved wooden items and candles make great presents. Stock your pantry with apples and other fall produce – meat, eggs, dairy (including eggnog), mushrooms, festive baked goods, cheeses, fresh juices, and treats and accessories for pets.

In an effort to keep vendors and customers safe, and to allow vendors time to drive in and set up before the opening time of market, there will be no sales allowed before 10 a.m. during the winter market. Winter market hours will continue through the end of April. The first week of May 2020, the market will go back to regular 8 a.m. to noon.
