You know it's a great market when we have our own theme song! 

Theme song written and performed by Preacher Jayk.

We're growing bigger every year! Thanks to the NCTTFC, we have a beautiful new market shelter! 

Elkin's Farmers Market is proud to announce they were awarded a grant (in 2013) from the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission (NCTTFC). The shelter provides space for 20 vendors but we will also leave room for expansion within the parking lot as we grow our market each year. A huge thank you goes out to the NCTTFC for believing in our vision for the market and appreciating the local farmers in our area. We look forward to offering a wonderful space for the community to enjoy and gather at our market for years to come...

The farmers are a wonderful group dedicated to bringing quality products to our community all summer long. 

 

December 2014: Shows progress on our new Farmers Market shelter!  During the week, our shelter will be available as a bus stop for the YVEDDI buses that transport residents around Elkin and to neighboring towns.

APPALACHIAN REGIONAL COUNCIL

In 2016, the Appalachian Regional Commission awarded the Yadkin Valley Chamber of Commerce a grant to install free WiFi in the downtown district.  This free WiFi service extends to the area surrounding the Farmers Market shelter.  The Elkin Main Street Advisory Board has offered to pay the service fee costs as the match to the grant, and the ARC's investment covers the cost of the WiFi equipment and installation. Surry Telephone was the company awarded the contract for installation of services.  

We as a group, hope you enjoy the market and the free WiFi accessibility while you visit the downtown!

Shopping hours

Elkin Farmers Market is open mid-April through November each year, and is located in Elkin, North Carolina.

Plenty of parking available and handicap accessible. Kid and pet friendly, too. 

This market is a "no-smoking" event.


Our Farmers

Our farmers are all certified and inspected at their farm locations before participating at the market. They grow all of the produce offered and some bring delicious freshly-baked goods for sale. You'll also find hand-crafted items, pottery, organic meats, honey, woodworking, leather goods and more! Plants for landscaping and for your home are available along with fresh herbs, veggies and fruits. Some items are seasonal, so the selections vary throughout the spring, summer and fall.

Some vendors participate in WIC and Senior Vouchers, and all are members of the Surry County Farmers Market who may also attend the Farmer's Market in Mount Airy on Tuesdays, and at Dobson on Thursdays.

Shop local, eat healthier & support your local farmers! 


While shopping at our market, you are helping to support our local farmers by purchasing their goods each weekend, as well as supporting healthy eating habits for your family. Come down and see what our market has to offer and meet our friendly farmers and artisans. You'll be pleasantly surprised at what you'll find...See you soon!

Enjoy live music most weekends! 


Along with regional foods and plants, we schedule a wide variety of music by various bands in North Carolina (and sometimes from those from other states)!  Come down and enjoy something different each weekend. The children love to watch them too, so bring them along!  It's a great way to start off the weekend.
