Wanted to give everyone a heads up about a great local market, which is held in downtown WS. We've been to the market every week so far and are very impressed by the quality of the products and the farmers that we've met. Highly reccommend that you check it out if you can.

Krankies Farmers Market
An all-local, producers-only market that seeks to bring a wide variety of fresh foods to downtown Winston-Salem. Vendors are selected on the basis of their healthy, sustainable, and humane practices.

The details...
Located on Patterson Avenue, between Third & Fourth Streets.
Parking is in the Nissen Building lot on 3rd (free) or in the Chestnut parking deck ($1/hr).
Tuesdays (10-1pm)
Open through November

I just discovered Krankies market this season and I am now there every Tuesday morning without fail. Everything I've gotten there has been very high quality and reasonable priced. I get veggies/fruit, meat, hummus and an occassional Meepcakes treat. I drive in from Clemmons and it is totally worth it.

Also, if people are interested in buying locally grown food, there are several CSAs in the area. We are members of Calahaln Farms in Mocksville and I know several people who are part of Shore Organics. This is a great way to support local farmers and get just-picked farm fresh food. We are lucky to live in an area where small farms can still make a go of it.

Thank you for the tips! I would love to try Krankies... but I work and cannot make it on Tuesdays. Know of any farmers markets open on weekends besides the huge one off of I40?

Have a great weekend!

Even though "Krankies Farmer's Market" is seasonal (Apr-Nov), some of the farmer's are still setting up on the pation INSIDE Krankies Coffee on Tuesdays.
If you check the market's FB page you can see what some of the farmer's will be selling, etc.
