In April, the Lincoln Farmers Market opened in two locations, Lincolnton and Denver. It is coordinated by the Cooperative Extension Office. Each Saturday, the Lincolnton location opens at 8 am and Denver at 9 am and close at noon.
The Denver market, at Rock Springs School on N.C. 16, is a Saturday-only market, while Lincolnton – located on West Water Street, just a short distance from the back of the James W. Warren Citizens Center – will add Tuesday and Thursday mornings later in the spring.
In addition to some early-season vegetables, customers can expect vendors to have baked goods, cut flowers, plants, local meat and crafts.
New vendors are always welcome. Anyone interested in selling should contact Kevin Starr at 704-736-8452 or Kevin_Starr@ncsu.edu to obtain a vendor’s certificate, information about fees and a list of what can be sold at the market.
