15 Years of Asheville City Market
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. The market started on Charlotte Street before moving to North Market Street in 2017. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the market operated as ASAP Farmers Market on A-B Tech’s campus. We returned downtown at the start of the 2022 season.
Every Saturday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m., January 7 to March 25 (Regular Season market hours, April to December, are 9 am–noon.)
North Market Street between Woodfin and Walnut streets in downtown Asheville. The street is closed to traffic during market times.
Free parking for customers is available at the HomeTrust Bank lot and at the Family Justice Center lot across from the YMCA at 35 Woodfin Street. Handicapped parking is available. There is a bus stop on the N1 and N2 routes one block away, on Broadway. Buses stop at both Woodfin and Walnut streets.
