Tomorrow is our Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony with the mayor! There will be a ton of great activities and entertainment all day, as well as a bunch of great local food and crafts from all our amazing vendors. The market will be from 2pm to 6pm at the Oakley United Methodist Church. If you have any trouble finding us, check out our new Find Us page, that has the address as well as a map of the location. The ribbon cutting will be at 3pm with Mayor Bellamy in attendance.
Not only is Gladheart Farms bringing their usual bountiful crop of vegetables, they’re bringing some sweet baby goats and they’re bringing a band! Gladheart Farms and Friends will be playing Irish-Celtic mountain music for the enjoyment of patrons and vendors alike! There will be tractors and a planting activity for the children that they can take home! A big thank you to Gladheart farms for helping our new market in so many ways, not least of which is providing all this for our grand opening!
Angel Ridge farms will provide angora wool spinning demonstrations. They usually bring a few of the angora rabbits along, too! They were certainly cute last week! There will also be face-painting, a balloon artist, and raffling off prizes!
Be sure and join us tomorrow for all the festivities. In the meantime, like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, and tell your friends there is a brand new farmers market in east Asheville, right in your neighborhood!
