Farm Fresh and Hand-made since 1980

Visit our Market Saturdays from 8 a.m. – Noon

On the campus of UNC Asheville

Welcome to Western NC’s most premier farmers market!

Since 1980, we have been providing Asheville and the surrounding area with a full range of local, sustainably produced produce, meats, eggs, cheeses, breads, plants, prepared foods and crafts. Day vendors complement the members’ offerings with additional products and services.

The North Asheville Tailgate Market is a weekly, Saturday morning gathering of the best farmers, craftsmen, and bakers. With over 40 vendors and more than 40,000 annual customers, the market’s energetic and warm environment exemplifies the celebrated diversity of our community.

Market Values

Local flowers

Our items are always locally sourced when possible. By purchasing local goods, you are recycling money back into our local economy, helping to strengthen our community.

Swiss chard

Our vendors have a direct hand in producing all the goods they sell. Through their passions and integrity, they yield foods and crafts of the highest quality.

Healthy bodies and minds establish a strong community. Chef demos, dietitian talks, and our Growing Minds at Market are just a few ways we contribute to creating a healthier community.

Blueberries and strawberries

Most of our growers use organic practices and the Market strives to give you organic choices for all products. Choosing organic is better for you and the environment.
