Relocating? Life in Lake Norman

Lake Norman: Where to Find Fresh Produce Stands and Farmers Markets

Davidson Farmer's Market is one of Lake Norman's most popular

Maybe it’s because it is 102 degrees outside, I don’t know, but all of a sudden cool fresh fruits and vegetables sound so good to me. I have had this stack of information about our local farmers markets, farms and produce stands for weeks so it’s high time I finally share all of the information with you!

Just like our daffodils and tulips, as spring arrives in Lake Norman our local produce stands and farmers markets start to come to life. Anytime between April and June you will being to see fresh plants, local honey and jams made over the winter and the first of our spring harvests. You don’t need to look more than a few miles In the Lake Norman area to find a great selection of official farmers markets as well as numerous road side stands selling not just the seasonal fruits and vegetables but fresh pies and other home-made goodies. Every week their signs will announce new arrivals like green peanuts, peaches, okra, corn, local blueberries and pumpkins. Some even open to sell Christmas trees and wreaths.

BLUEBERRIES are at the very top of my list! I harvested my first crop these past couple of weeks and supplemented them with ones from the local produce stands. I eat them by the carton!

My favorite local produce stand is Josh’s Farmers Market on Williamson Road which is  now open seven days a week, check their website for hours. By the way, Josh’s carries Nana’s Pies which was rated as one of the best pies in Charlotte. This week she had peach, sweet potato, apple and pecan. Yes, I have gained a couple of pounds since moving here!

 

Here is the list of our Lake Norman area’s farmers markets:

There are also some wonderful farms where you can buy and even pick seasonal fruits and vegetables like Carrigan Farms in Mooresville.

All of these farmers markets open and close different months of the year and times and dates will vary so it is a good idea to check your local newspaper before going. Or check out the North Carolina Farm Fresh wesite.

ENJOY!
