Had a Great Time at the Mills River Tailgate Market
Bought wonderful lettuce from Paul Shoemaker.
On Saturday, May 8th, my husband and I attended the opening day of the 2010 Mills River tailgate market season. This is the closest tailgate market to where we live in Henderson County. It is a fairly new market; this is the second year. There wasn't a crowd of vendors there, but there was just about everything you could want for this time of the season!
Fresh baked goods for sale.
There were coffee cakes and cupcakes; jams, jellies and preserves; green onions, kale, chard, lettuce, and radishes; eggs and trout; live chickens; sun and shade loving perennials; straw and organic fertilizer; and more.
The Brittains were selling fresh trout and eggs.
The tailgate market will be open every Saturday from 8 AM to Noon. I urge you to come out and support your local farmers and buy some fresh, locally grown food. The lettuce, trout, kale, coffee cake, and pear jam that we bought are all wonderful!!
