Mountain Gateway Muesum Farmers Market
Mountain Gateway Museum (MGM), in conjunction with the Old Fort Community Forum, is planning to launch a Farmersí Market at the museum this summer. The market will be held from 2:30 to 6:00 p.m. every Thursday, beginning May 2 and ending October 3. Farmers may sell from their tailgates or from under tents, which they must provide along with tables and chairs.
Tailgate spaces will be located in the museumís parking lot along Water Street, while 12-foot x 12-foot tent spaces will be located inside the split-rail fence along Water Street in front of the museumís two log cabins. All spaces at the MGM Farmersí Market will be free, although donations will be accepted.
Farmers must register with the museum to participate. Only fresh, locally grown or produced fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, plants, meats, eggs, honey, and other edibles will be allowed.
For more information about this market, farmers can contact the museum at 828-668-9259.
