In Western North Carolina, we are surrounded by an abundance of beautiful farmland and farmers’ markets throughout our sixteen counties. Happily, the fruit and vegetables offered at these markets are more accessible to our community than ever!
Thanks to programs, such as Double Up Food Bucks, select farmers markets throughout our area offer a one-to-one match on SNAP dollars spent at participating locations. That means that for every dollar spent using SNAP/EBT at participating farmers markets, customers get twice that amount to buy food!
The following eight farmers markets are locations where you will be able to double up on your SNAP dollars!
ASAP Farmers Market (Asheville), Saturdays, 9 AM – Noon.
East Asheville Tailgate Market, Fridays, 3 – 6 PM.
Enka-Candler Tailgate Market, Thursdays, 3 – 6 PM.
Hendersonville Farmers Market, Saturdays, 8 AM – 1 PM.
Mills River Farmers Market, Saturdays, 8 AM – Noon.
North Asheville Tailgate Market, Saturdays, 8 AM – Noon.
Transylvania Farmers Market, Brevard, Saturdays, 9 AM – Noon.
West Asheville Tailgate Market, Tuesdays, 3:30 – 6:30 PM.
