Held on Thursdays 11:30am – 1:00pm
Now in its 4th year, this free food market (yes, your read that right!) will be held at the same time and location as the Fairview Welcome Table, located uphill from the Fairview Library, near Fairview Christian Fellowship (see map below). 596 Old US-74, Fairview, North Carolina. The market is hosted during the growing season on Thursday’s from 11:30am – 1:00pm.
The Fairview Share-the-Harvest Market is a space where folks in and near Fairview can bring their excess produce, plant starts, seeds, eggs, bread, etc and take food in return. You do not have to share food to take food but the market runs on donated local food gleaned from backyard gardens, farms, local kitchens and from The Lord’s Acre.
ANYONE AND EVERYONE is welcome. This market (like the Welcome Table) is for all. Eagle Scout Jonathan Tokay built a farm stand for the market that will be located behind the playground at the Welcome Table, just up the parking lot from the Fairview Library. For questions and guidelines, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

French Broad River Park
From their Event Page:
Join us – all women who eat, farm, garden, or are interested in organics, sustainability, and agriculture.
A relaxed, supportive, half-day, gathering to connect and celebrate women in food & farming. This is not a workshop or a class format but a sharing and celebration and connection.
We’ve rented the pavilion at the French Broad River Park.
Bring a potluck dish to share.
If we feel inspired we will break out into discussion groups or pick a topic to discuss. Otherwise we’ll enjoy each other, the summer, the food, and celebrate.
Hosted by The Women of Organic Growers School
