It's Spring!! The markets are open in Asheville, NC!!

So the Downtown Market is of course open all- year because it is indoors, and one of the fun things is that it is so eclectic: hi-fi coffee bar, a great little joint with the most delicious hot chocolates I've ever tasted; Amazing Savings discount grocer; a growing number of local farmers and food vendors; arts and crafts; and a consignment store, all in one place!!
Asheville City Market has it's opening this Saturday, April 17, coinciding with the Earth Day festival I covered recently, and they are right down the street from each other! A great place to enjoy Spring while meeting many a vendor, sampling and purchasing many a local tasty treat, or handmade goody, or native/ medicinal/ edible plant.
North Asheville Market also opens April 17. This market is Asheville's oldest farmer's market and is held on the campus of UNC-A.
There are plenty more markets in our area; check out the list here.
Spring is a great time to visit Asheville, NC, and when you are here you should definitely get a taste of the town! Asheville has a thriving local foods movement, so grab some tasty treats and head back to your Asheville vacation cabin- aren't you soooo glad you rented a whole house, including a fully- equipped kitchen, rather than a hotel room??!!
