   The Western North Carolina Farmers Market first opened for business in September of 1977. This model project involving input from local, state and national leaders, is one of the most modern and best planned markets in the United States. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the market each year not only to shop but just to take in the wonderful country atmosphere. Fruits and vegetables can be purchased by the piece, pound, bushel or truckload. Former Commissioner of Agriculture James A. Graham stated it this way; “Think of shopping at a 36-acre roadside stand featuring farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants, mountain crafts and scores of gift items.”
   Retail vendors offer a year-round selection of farm fresh produce, canned goods, honey and handcrafted items. Five truck sheds provide space for farmers and dealers to display and sell their produce. Restaurants and a retail garden center are also located on Market grounds.
