Shop Local at the Hickory Farmers Market

On Wednesday and Saturday mornings from April until the end of November, the Hickory Farmers Market brings the city together for the freshest and finest goods our North Carolina purveyors have to offer.

From the fresh regional produce to the imaginative creations of local artists, the farmers market puts the unique character of our community on vibrant display. The gathering at Union Square in downtown Hickory has become a great opportunity to mingle with friends, neighbors, and the people that provide the food we all enjoy.

The Market

The Hickory Farmers Market presents a wide variety of local goods that change with the season. Farmers, chefs, and other purveyors will bring their best offerings to the market, and the stands will feature a colorful assortment of fruits, vegetables, baked goods, cheeses, honey, flowers, preserves, meats, seafood, and more. Arts and crafts tables will also display the handiwork of our local artisans. The market brings in an average of 45 unique vendors, and there’s bound to be something for everyone.

Eating in Season

Since the season dictates what’s available, the vendors’ offerings may very well be different each time you visit. Regular patrons can find watermelon, green peppers, and sweet blueberries in the summer, and can expect pumpkins to appear as the heat gives way to an autumn chill. Of course, peanuts and sweet potatoes are perennial mainstays. Some items like field peas, pecans, and white potatoes have a very brief harvest, so be sure to pick them up whenever you see them!

Make Your Plans

The market is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesdays, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays through the summer and fall. In November, the market is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Keep in mind that the market will be closed on October 12 for Oktoberfest.
