It’s best to come and shop early at the market because, as the summer slowly comes to an end, so does some locally grown produce. The market is open 8 a.m. to noon. Both senior and WIC vouchers are 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. Go to www.salisburyfarmersmarket.com for more information about the market and its vendors.
