Now in its sixth season, Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market is returning for the 2021-2022 season Saturday December 4, to offer delicious healthy, fresh local foods and products all winter long.

The farmers’ market will operate from 9:00AM-12:00PM Saturdays from December through March at the Watauga Agricultural Conference Center.

The Winter Farmers' Market features 33 vendors, and there will be more special events and weekly kids’ activities this year.

This year customers can move through the building however they wish, however masks are still required inside and masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the manager’s booth when customers first walk in.

Boone’s Winter Farmers’ Market offers the Double Up Food Bucks program for customers with SNAP benefits so that more people have the opportunity to afford local food.

Over the last year, more than 267 families have doubled over $40,000 to purchase healthy, local food at Boone’s farmers’ markets.
