Wine tasting Saturday at Farmers Market

SALISBURY — There will be a wine tasting booth at the Salisbury Farmers Market this Saturday. Cauble Creek Vineyard, local producers of muscadine wine, will have wine samples for tasting at the market. Cauble Creek Vineyard has the distinction of becoming the 100th winery in North Carolina, garnering a celebratory visit from Gov. Beverly Perdue in 2011.
Cauble Creek Vineyard also sells other products such a juices, jellies and salsas from their muscadine grapes, which are grown just a few miles from downtown Salisbury.
Salisbury Farmers Market Manager, Harry Agner also has this market update for local shoppers:
• Assorted crafts are available at the market.
• Beautiful cut flowers continue to be plentiful.
• Green beans are in limited quantity and usually sell out early.
• Assorted beef, chicken and pork products are available.
• Local handmade cheese from Iredell County.
• Local field grown tomatoes have just arrived.
• Goat milk soap is on sale — good for skin problems.
• Okra is plentiful.

• Handmade custom bird houses are still a favorite
• Homemade dog and cat treats are available.
• Home baked goods continue to be a market favorite.
It is important to shop early to get best selection as some items may be limited. Local growers make a special effort to produce clean and safe produce for their shoppers.
The market opens at 8 a.m. to noon. Both senior and WIC vouchers are now being accepted at the Salisbury Farmers Market. The market is at the corner of South Jackson and West Fisher streets in downtown Salisbury near Rowan Public Library earlier this spring.
