At our inception 20 years ago, we chose to be different. Unlike other news organizations, we made the decision to provide in-depth, regional reporting free to anyone who wanted access to it. We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.

The Smoky Mountain News is a wholly private corporation. Reader contributions support the journalistic mission of SMN to remain independent. Your support of SMN does not constitute a charitable donation. If you have a question about contributing to SMN, please contact us.

Dillsboro to host Jackson County Farmers Market

The Jackson County Farmers Market will set up at Innovation Station in Dillsboro, Wednesdays 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. 

The Wednesday market had previously been held at Bridge Park, where the Saturday market will still be located from 9 a.m. to noon. Moving the Wednesday event to Dillsboro is intended to expand the market and bring in new customers. 

The Jackson County Farmers Market is not currently offering craft vendors due to COVID-19 restrictions on non-essential businesses but continues to host local farmers and businesses selling a variety of locally made and raised food items. Cash, credit, debit and SNAP benefits are accepted, and Double Up Food Bucks are available for SNAP recipients.
