Visiting the Farmer's Market lends an "all is right with the world" atmosphere of antique winds and modern laughter. You have the opportunity to shake your Farmer's hand, tap your feet to some music, taste local Chefs' market creations, and make old friends. We promise the glory of a good harvest, select meats, rice, honey, eggs, cheeses, baked goods, marinades, preserves & pickles, fresh-cut flowers, transplants, potted plants, shrubs, fresh & dried herbs, heritage & artisan crafts, street foods and more—see? "more!" You have to come to get the meaning of "more." It's a soulful feeling and a sense of belonging. Get greedy for more. Welcome!
*Please note, due to the spread of COVID-19, the Downtown Hickory Farmers' Market is immediately adopting the following mission and rules. We want to continue to safely provide you healthy foods in a controlled environment. Until further notice, we want the public to treat the market as an essential shopping trip. Please do not come if you feel sick, and bring as few people as possible for your visit. Please pre-order from your favorite farmers, if possible, and let the vendor touch and bag your items for you. Please do not crowd the booths and respect the 6' social distance from any other person at the market as recommended by the CDC. Our healthy vendors will all be wearing masks per CDC guidelines, and gloves/hand sanitizer, and have hand sanitizer available at each booth. Pre-purchases for pick-up are encouraged. No sampling will be available. We will continue the SNAP/EBT program.
As we all follow these precautions, we will be able to keep the market open as a safe and healthy means of nourishment during this time.
