It’s time to get fresh, because the Salisbury/Rowan Farmers Market is back! Be sure to note this year’s new location on South Main Street to find this year’s crop of vendors with their local produce, meat, flowers, plants and crafts. 

Because of upcoming construction at Bell Tower Park, the market has moved to 520 S. Main St., in the parking lot next to Sidekick Karate. Hours will remain the same, 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. It’s a good idea to bring cash; some vendors accept credit cards and checks, but others may not.
