New Wednesday Hours!

Not a morning person? Not a problem! Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market is excited to announce our Wednesday market will be shifting to afternoon hours, 3:30-6:30 pm, beginning August 2nd!

Same great market, same location, later time. Stop by after work or school for your mid-week local meat and produce restock, or just to grab a tasty afternoon morsel. We hope this afternoon shift will help us serve more of Waynesville and Haywood County’s population, and we’re excited for the growth and possibilities this later time will open up!

Stay tuned, and we hope to see you at market!

*Saturday market will still be at the same time, 8 am – Noon, every Saturday. *

We love our market sponsors!

We couldn’t be more thankful to have such wonderful market sponsors! They make the job of running the market and supporting local food and farms that much easier. Make sure to support them!

Our Sponsors 

Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market believes in building our Haywood County community through local farms and food. If you are a Haywood County business and share our mission, or just enjoy shopping at the market, consider becoming a sponsor of our market!

Through your sponsorship, you greatly facilitate our market’s efforts, ensuring that our farmers and artisan craft producers have an easily accessible venue for selling their product, and in doing so, continue a long Haywood County tradition. As a 501(c)3 non-profit all donations made to Haywood’s Historic Farmers Market are tax deductible. Perhaps your business is not ready for a monetary sponsorship? We would love to discuss a partnership with your business, and explore ideas that help to build our community.
