Farmer's Fresh Tailgate Market

The Farmer's Fresh Tailgate Market is a seasonal Farmer's Market located in the parking lot of the Tri-City Mall in Forest City, NC, right off of Oak St, next to the Carmike movie theatre.

We offer a variety of produce, from fresh tomatoes (including heirloom varieties) to beans, corn, squash, blueberries, peaches, raspberries, blackberries, watermelon, apples, eggs, eggplant, peppers, cabbage, and much more!

We are set up between April and September, every Saturday morning from 7am to 11am (or Sellout). The Farmers in our market are strictly local, and only sell what they themselves or a neighboring farmer grow.

The Farmers Fresh Market is sponsored by Foothills Connect, an Economic Development and Technology organization located in Rutherfordton, NC. Our goal is to help create small businesses and entrepreneurship opportunities for displaced workers. We consider farming to be the oldest and most enduring form of American entrepreneurism. We are accomplishing this by promoting sustainable agriculture practices with Buy Fresh, Buy Local!



Schedule and Location:

Hours: 7am to 11am (or sellout)
Days: Every Saturday throughout the growing season
