Go Fresh and Go Local at the Rocky Mount Farmers Market
Open every Saturday through the month of November, and located conveniently at 1006 Peachtree Street, just a short drive from your new home at the Belmont Lake Preserve new home community, the freshest produce, meats, seafood, and all other local products you could imagine are available at the Rocky Mount Farmers Market.
Running each Saturday morning from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., the Rocky Mount Farmers Market gives area farmers a “storefront” in which to sell their fantastic produce and local residents can not only get their fresh items straight from the farm, but also support the hardworking members of their community in doing so.
The philosophy of the Rocky Mount Farmers Market is simply described on the official Nash County website as a place where “local farmers sell products they actually produce.” Going on it explains, “This market philosophy is consistent with long term economic development and preservation of our local farming community.”
Over the years, the Rocky Mount Farmers Market has become a tradition and somewhat of an institution on Saturday mornings, with residents enjoying not only the goods for sale, but the friendly, community feel and the social aspect of the market as well.
“This market is not just a building,” the Nash County website explains. “It’s the dynamic activity of all of the people involved in growing, harvesting, buying, selling and sometimes socializing. Shoppers come to enjoy the farmers market experience.”
Throughout the Rocky Mount Farmers Market annual schedule, which runs from April through November, they also have a variety of activities periodically that take place at the market including live music and entertainment, opportunities to tour the farms of some of the participants following the Saturday sales, and much more.
The Rocky Mount Farmers market is a great place to get in touch and support the local community and its also a great place to get some unique items and some of the most delicious, homegrown fruits, veggies, meats, and more.
