The High Point Farmers Market will kick off its 2024 season on Saturday, April 20, and the market will be at the same place it’s been in the past – outside the High Point Public Library at 901 N. Main St.

After the opening Saturday, the market will continue to take place every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. through the Saturday before Halloween.

For the fourth year, Bethany Medical and the Lenny Peters Foundation are sponsoring the market.

On the market’s opening day, live music will be provided by Simple Covers and Kibi’s Crazy Casserole will do cooking demonstrations.

Here’s a list of the fresh produce highlighted in the announcement of the start of the new season: “strawberries, radishes, carrots, spring greens, hothouse tomatoes, squash, herbs, onions, cabbages and cauliflower.”

If fruits and vegetables aren’t your thing, well, then there’s beef, pork, poultry, eggs, honey, baked goods, jams and jellies.

They also sell coffee by the cup at the market and, as in the past, some vendors will be selling houseplants and vegetable plants.

 Also, as in past years, the 2024 market will feature a variety of craft vendors selling things like soap, woodwork creations, pottery, jewelry, rugs, candles and decorative items for the home.

In addition, the Friends of the Library will resume their “Mini-Market Book Sale,” which offers a variety of books and DVDs – each for $2 or less.

This year, one regular feature of the market will be weekly health screenings performed by High Point University’s School of Pharmacy and Oak Street Health.

There will also be healthy cooking demonstrations, live music and food trucks that will vary from week to week.

The Farmers Market is a SNAP-certified market, and EBT cards are accepted at the High Point Farmers Market table.

The market also offers a Double the Bucks program, which allows SNAP customers to receive twice the value of their EBT charge in High Point Farmers Market tokens. That program is made possible by a donation from Bethany Medical and the Lenny Peters Foundation.

Also, Guilford Community Cares Network clients can use their orange cards at the market to get $15 in fresh produce each Saturday.

The market’s community partners are the City of High Point’s Public Information Office, the City of High Point’s Stormwater Department, Oak Street Health, the Carolina Core Football Club and Family Services of the Piedmont.
