Asheville City Market Returns to North Market Street!
After two pandemic years operating as ASAP Farmers Market at A-B Tech, Asheville City Market returned to its North Market Street location in downtown Asheville in April 2022. Asheville City Market was established in 2008 as a learning lab to pilot new programs and provide more opportunities for farmers, particularly those unable to access existing market options. Stay up to date on market news via Facebook, Instagram, and weekly e-newsletters.
