POWELL Writer – CF Media According to a media release from Emma Budzinski, Market Manager for the Foothills Farmers' Market, the Market plans to extend their hours of being open for busi- ness. The market is located at 126 W. Marion St., in Uptown Shelby, at the Bobby Bell Pavilion. Noted Ms. Budzinski in her media release, "The Foothills Farmers' Market will extend to a year-round market with adjusted hours in order to accommodate both vendors and customers from the months of November to March." She continued, "The Winter Market will take place each Satur- day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the exception of holiday weeks which include Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's." Long a well-known shopping place of the Shelby community, the Foothills Farmers' Market provides the community access to the fresh- est local foods available anywhere, noted Budzinski. "They value fam- ily farms, endorse sustainable food production practices and innova- tion, contribute to the health and wellbeing of the local community, and support the growth of a robust local food economy," stated Ms. Budzinski. It is because of what all FHFM does for the community, she added, that the "…market staff and board seek to provide these opportunities throughout the entire year." "The year-round Market will provide local farmers and artisans with even more opportunities to sell their products, meet their custom- ers, and serve their community," continued Budzinski, adding that, "Market vendors will provide winter greens as well as other more shelf- stable produce. The market seeks to host even more artists that will display their craft, and live music will continue on these days to add to the ambiance of the market." She said further, "The Power of Produce (POP) Club activities will also con- tinue for our kids. The continuing goal is that the Foothills Farmers' Market will remain as 'the place to be' on a Saturday morning for the entire family." To 'stay in the know' about fu- ture market information, sign up for the market newsletter that will be delivered to your email inbox every Friday, added Budzinski. "This is a chance to find out about exciting opportunities at the market as well as be informed about the activities that will take place each Saturday," she con- cluded. As their website says, "The Foothills Farmers' Market provides easy access to food produced in Cleveland County and the sur- rounding 50 miles, and are proud to showcase the family-owned farms and small businesses in the region. The vendors have deep roots in the rolling soils of the North Carolina Foothills, produc- ing an astonishing array of fresh fruits and veg- etables, meat and poultry products, baked goods, artisan cheeses, honey, nuts, herbs and other spe- cialty food items. One can also find an assortment of ornamental and edible plants, plus handmade arts and crafts offered for sale each week."
