NC Farmers Market Fall Craft Fair 2011

The NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is holding a three day fall craft fair on November 11, 12 and 13, 2011.  It's a great time to get your apples, sweet potatoes and Christmas gifts.

Usually the Farmers Market is the best place in the state to get fresh fruit and vegetables. An excerpt from their website explains:

 Farmers Building
30,000 square feet for North Carolina farmers to sell fresh produce, plants, and other specialty items produced on local farms.  Plants are available starting in March and local fruits and vegetables are sold throughout the growing season.  This is where you can find the freshest and widest variety of produce and plants in the area.
Market Shoppes
There is plenty of room to shop in this 15,600 square foot enclosed climate controlled building.  You can expect to find fresh produce from around the country here as well as meats, cheeses, crafts, bakery items, custom picture framing, a market grill, and N.C. wines.  There is a wide variety of specialty shops with old-fashioned candies, N.C. gifts, soaps, and lotions.

This weekend, the extra space in the Farmers Building will be filled with all kinds of handcrafted goodies. They will range from jewelry and accessories to home decor and goods. The show is so large that it overflows throughout the whole parking lot between the two buildings.

 And as usual, a plug for myself:  I'll be there and I can't wait to see you! It's something you should check out this weekend.
