The already bountiful farmer’s market offerings in the Swannanoa Valley just got better with the recent addition of the new Riceville Community Market. The next market takes place on Saturday, April 20, from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Riceville Volunteer Fire Department, 2251 Riceville Road. Beginning in May, the Riceville market will move to an every Saturday schedule, from 9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. The Riceville market offers fresh produce, crafts, baked goods and more. The market’s goal is to promote community relationships and support local farmers, artists and craftsmen. If you’d like more info or are interested in being a vendor, call 828-215-0601 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
