Market Corner February 2020


We are about 2 months away from the opening of the 2020 Enka-Candler Tailgate Market season and we could not be more excited! Market Manager, Heather, recently attended Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project’s (ASAP) Business of Farming Conference. Here, new connections were made, ideas among Market Managers were shared, and support opportunities from ASAP were noted for future events. There are many wonderful Markets, farmers, artisans, and organizations here in western North Carolina and we are happy to add our local Enka-Candler Tailgate Market to the mix again in our 2nd season! New and returning vendor applications are rolling in! We heard your feedback at the end of last season, with requests for more farm/produce vendors, as well as food vendors. We are very excited to already have 3 additional farms joining us this year, along with returning farms from the 2019 season. We still are actively looking for a food truck/vendor to offer up tasty meals while you’re at Market. If you know of anyone, please share our wonderful Market with them. Vendor Applications are still be accepted and can be found at www.ashevillefarmstead.org/enka-candler-tailgate-market Stay tuned to our Instagram and Facebook pages as we start introducing our 2020 vendors, events, and other Market news! If you are interested in sponsoring our Music Tent, Youth activities, Special events, Promotional materials, or other type of involvement, please get in touch at candlertailgate@ashevillefarmstead.org
