Fayetteville Farmers Market ramps up for spring
April 5, 2013 by Mark
The Fayetteville Farmers and City Market located on the grounds of the Fayetteville Transportation and Local History Museum recently announced that it is ramping up its activities for the spring season.
April is the time of the year when the new growing season is kicked off by the Market and the historic properties manager for the City of Fayetteville, Bruce Daws, is looking forward to a season during which both the market and its offerings will be growing.
According to Daws, the Market is trying to grow its offerings with music and various other activities on the grounds so that people can come not just to buy produce or a craft, but to enjoy a place where they can stay and hang out for an afternoon or a Saturday morning. He added that there is plenty of space for the Market to grow as it can wrap completely around the Transportation Museum, and there is one street that is not occupied at all.
The Market is open on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Various farm products are available such as seasonal fruits and vegetables, honey, and eggs as well as some specialty items like flowers and plants, teas, soaps, candles, and jewelry.
The City Market is in its second year and is the part of the Market that focuses on original arts and craft-like objects so that it does not appear as a flea market.
