The Evening Farmer’s Market

The Evening Farmers Market is held each Thursday afternoon from 3:45- 6pm in Pecan Park off N. Center Street in Downtown Statesville and runs April – October. All items at the Thursday Evening Farmers Market are locally grown or made.

The Evening Farmers Market is a non-profit group of area farmers, bakers, and crafters who present their products for sale for the convenience of early evening shopping at Pecan Park in Downtown Statesville. It’s a great place to stop after work and enjoy shopping outdoors, listening to music, trying samples, meeting friends and vendors. 

The selections will vary depending on the growing season, but you can count on a variety of fresh produce; baked breads, pies and cookies; flowering, vegetable and herb plants; meats and eggs; and hand cream, lip balm, and ointment made with honey and bees wax. Madge Eggena, the manager of The Evening Farmer’s Market, said what makes their market fantastic and sets it apart from many, is that “all vendors are required to be the original producer of what they sell, whether a baker, crafter, or grower.”

If you are an original baker, crafter, or grower and are interested in being a vendor at The Evening Farmer’s Market, you can fill out an application by visiting the website at www.theeveningfarmersmarket.com or stop by the market to pick up an application.

Rotary Farmer’s Market

The Rotary Farmer’s Market will open on May 6th, behind the Historic Vance Hotel, on the corner of West Front Street and Meeting Street. This market is open Wednesday and Saturday, 7am – 12 noon. The market will not open on Monday afternoons, as it has in past years.

The Rotary Farmer’s Market was established by the Statesville Rotary Club in 1975 to provide local farmers an outlet to sell locally grown products and to provide Statesville citizens an opportunity to purchase fresh, locally grown produce and other products. Throughout the season, you can find a variety of fresh produce, flowers, honey and wax products, and local favorites—fresh peaches and apples.

Vendors that are interested in participating in the Rotary Farmer’s Market can contact Dr. Peggy Wilhide at 704-872-4645.
