June 20, 2013. The yearly Avery County Friday Market opens Saturday, June 21 at Newland Town Park.
The market boasts numerous vendors of vegetables, breads, honey, mushrooms, jellies, jams, fried apple pies and much more. Crafts such as pottery, birdhouses and jewelry will also be available for purchase.
Unlike traditional farmer’s markets, Avery County starts in the evening at 5 p.m. and lasts until 7 p.m.
Visitors to the market can expect music and farm animals on special occasions.
Vendors accept cash only and pets are not allowed to the market.
