Join Henderson County Tailgate Market in celebrating its 40th anniversary season with its Saturday markets, taking place now through Saturday, October 26.

This year the season is open to the public every Saturday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm at 100 North King Street in the parking lot of the county office building.

The market is especially excited for this season as they’ll soon begin accepting SNAP/EBT and debit/credit cards for the first time since its beginning.

The Henderson County Tailgate Market originally opened in 1979 featuring fresh county grown produce.  It is one of the oldest and successful open air markets in Western North Carolina.

The market continues to be filled with local growers who operate small family farms in Henderson County. They have developed a reputation for quality and high-value specialty crops and nursery stock. Throughout the season you can find beautiful annual flowers, perennials, native plants and shrubs, trees, and fresh cut flowers for your bouquets. You will find in season crops of fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
