The High Country's farmers markets are still going strong this fall to support area farmers and provide fresh, local food.
Fill your bags and baskets with fresh produce, meats and baked goods for fantastic meals at your vacation cabin or for picnics along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Remember to wear a face covering and give others plenty of space while you shop at the markets, and check market websites for information on other COVID-19 safety protocols.
