Late summer is a great time to visit tailgate markets and enjoy the wide variety of locally-grown fruits and vegetables that are available this time of year. Swannanoa residents are fortunate to have several nearby markets to choose from, including:
Warren Wilson College Garden Market: Fridays from 11 am – 1 pm across from Gladfelter Cafeteria (follow the signs from Warren Wilson College Rd.).
Black Mountain Tailgate Market: Saturday mornings from 9 am – 12 noon at 130 Montreat Rd. (behind First Baptist Church).
Riceville Tailgate Market: Friday afternoons from 4 – 7 pm at 954 Tunnel Rd. (parking lot of Groce United Methodist Church at corner of Beverly and Tunnel).
