It may not feel like it with the weather we’re experiencing this week, but we assure you Fayetteville, warmer days are ahead.
We know this, because the daffodils are already popping up around town. The trees are blooming. Our seasonal allergies are driving us nuts. And also, Fayetteville Farmers’ Market is set to return to the square this weekend.
The market will kick off the 2023 season with two Saturday “Spring Fling” markets on March 18 and 25, before opening the regular season on Saturday, April 1 on the downtown Fayetteville square. The two March markets will be open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., and will include seasonal vegetables, meats, eggs and cheeses in addition to fresh cut flowers, artisan crafts and local bakery goods.
After that, regular Saturday markets will begin on April 1 each week from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. through November.
In addition to the in-person walk-up markets, the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market also accepts online orders that can be placed each week between 6 p.m. on Sundays and 6 a.m. on Wednesdays, to be picked up between 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Fayetteville Public Library’s south parking lot on School Avenue.
For those who aren’t familiar, the market includes around 70 vendors selling all kinds of locally-grown flowers, produce, meats, eggs, baked goods, plants, and arts and crafts.
In addition, there are typically musicians performing on each corner, food trucks, community groups, and tons of people circling the square in the warm spring air while browsing all the locally-grown and handmade items.
