The Old Salem Cobblestone Farmers Market

Come visit us at the Old Salem Cobblestone Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9am-12pm! We are vendors and the market managers and our Saturdays have never been so fulfilling and fun!

This independent market is the first Saturday morning producer's only market in Winston-Salem. All of our farmers grow pesticide free and all of the meat vendors are Animal Welfare Approved. Krankies Coffee sells iced coffee and pour-over coffee and Winston-Salem's first food truck, Joaquin's Curb Cuisine makes locally sourced breakfast items. As the second Cobblestone Farmers Market after the Tuesday Cobblestone Farmers Market, the term "Cobblestone" is officially branded as Winston-Salem's independent producer's only markets where you KNOW you will be buying from the producer and there will be no resale.

Locally Grown News wrote a wonderful article on how the market brings Old Salem full circle since Old Salem had been the center of trade once upon a time.

The Opening Day of the market on May 12th featured a 10-piece Moravian band and the blowing of the conch shell, a Moravian tradition, to announce that the market had opened. Even without the Moravian music, the generous feeling of being in a historic setting in a contemporary yet basic way is ever present. Not to mention that that beautiful, cool and sunny day is fondly remembered now in the early July heat.
