The Crossing at Hollar Mill is delighted to announce the first annual Winter Farmers Market! The concept of this market began a few years ago when Sarah Wood and Robert Locke saw an opportunity to provide local farmers with a space to sell their goods in the offseason. Many purveyors still have produce, meat, cheese etc. available but nowhere to meet their customers as the weather gets colder. Hosting a Winter Farmers Market fits into The Crossing’s vision of benefitting the community and helping to grow the local foods movement.
The Winter Farmers Market will be open every Wednesday, 10am-2pm, starting November 16, 2016, and running through April 12, 2017. Entry to the market is free, and there will be free parking in designated areas.
Come to The Crossing at Hollar Mill, 883 Highland Avenue SE, Hickory, North Carolina, to get your winter produce and market goods.
Winter Farmers Market details and updates are available at thecrossinghickory.com/our-events/winterfarmersmarket. Right now, vendor spaces are available. If you would like to be a part of this inaugural market year, email to find out more about the plans and how your farm or business might participate.
The Crossing at Hollar Mill, owned by the Locke family, is Hickory’s premiere 10,000-square-foot full-service rental venue and concert hall. The businesses were founded with a focus on our vendors and purveyors; those who work with us and for us; and our guests who honor us with their patronage. Our commitment to extreme hospitality invites guests to return time and again. The Locke family are committed to preserving Hickory’s history and honoring it with sustainable and thoughtful development. For more information, visit www.thecrossinghickory.com.
