Fresh Bucks can only be used for fresh produce – fruits and vegetables. Available while supply lasts.

“According to guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, farmers markets fall under the same classification as grocery stores and are considered an important source of food for local communities.”
– The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
NCDA&CS stated the farmers markets that choose to operate during the coronavirus outbreak are required to follow the same federal or state orders given to grocery stores. Therefore, the Nash County Farmers Market is working with our local public officials and Nash County Health Department to implement safety measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Opening the market, provides our community access to local foods while supporting our local agriculture community.
Safety Measures We Are Taking
We are following the recommendations from NCSU Food Safety for Farmers Markets. Please be assured we will continue to assess the situation and adjust accordingly.
- Sanitizing stations will be available throughout the market.
- All vendors will be spaced apart to allow for social distancing.
- On-site dining spaces have been eliminated.
- Frequent cleaning and sanitizing of market equipment.
- Face masks are required.
Here’s How You, As a Patron, Can Help
- Come to market in good health.
- Utilize hand sanitizing stations at the start and end of your visit to the market and refrain from touching your face.
- Avoid touching the produce and products you do not intend to buy.
- Allow vendors to bag your purchases. Many items will be pre-packaged and pre-priced for convenience.
- Practice social distancing – stay 6 feet away – in and around the market.
- Get in, get out and get home! Social distancing means that you won’t be able to stand around and chat with your favorite vendor for half an hour.
