WStoday: Busy Saturday at Cobblestone Farmers Market
Customers shopping for produces and goods at Cobblestone Farmers Market. | WStoday team
The bright burst of a freshly picked pumpkin pie in your mouth, the excitement of seeing the first collard greens of the season, a warm loaf of bread nestled into your tote bag...just thinking about our favorite local farmers market fills us with pride.

You still have three more days to turn that appreciation into a vote — so that the entire nation can know and recognize Winston-Salem for having the best farmers markets around.

The 2023 America’s Farmers Market Celebration (AFMC) is open to votes through Monday, Sept. 18 to find a “People’s Choice” farmers market as the top-endorsed market in the country. The prize? Up to $15,000 for the top five markets to spend on marketing, communication, and other needs.

The most popular market in each state also wins $100 — so get voting for your favorite.

Here are Editor Cambridge’s top two markets:
  • Cobblestone Farmers Market, 1007 Marshall St. SW., Winston-Salem | Every Saturday from 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m.| You get your pick, from beautifully stacked flowers, to fresh produce and sometimes live music to accompany you while you stroll through the market. Pro-tip: Don’t forget to bring your reusable bag.
  • Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Farmers Market, 62532 Farmers Market Wy., Winston-Salem | Every Saturday from 6 a.m.-12 p.m. | The oldest market in Forsyth County is nothing short of a tradition. You’ll be met with friendly faces, fresh produce and delicious handmade treats.
The search to find America’s most beloved markets accomplishes the AFMC’s mission: to shine a light on the vital role farmers markets play across the country.

Farmers markets are a major resource connecting communities and families to fresh, local food. The produce sold is typically at the peak of its growing season — meaning it also has peak nutrition and taste. Plus, shopping locally keeps your dollar in your community and directly supports farmers, ranchers, and growers.

Feeling the passion? Sign up for updates from American Farmland Trust or register for a free “No Farms No Food” bumper sticker. And don’t forget to vote your market to the top.

I’m thrilled to share that a little kitten I have been fostering finally has a home. If you’re looking for an adorable family member, I hope you’ll consider pets available through the Forsyth County Animal Shelter or Forsyth Humane Society — there are so many precious animals looking for their forever homes.
