Cobblestone Farmers Market Local produce kidsCobblestone Farmers Market is open for the 2020 season in Old Salem with some tweaks to make it COVID-19 safe.

Once on the cobblestones at Third Street and Patterson (across the street from Krankies Coffee), but today the market sets up on Saturdays at Old Salem from 8:30 am – noon. Many adore this all-local, producers-only market that features mostly organic farmers and all are screened for sustainable, healthy and humane practices.

Cobblestone Farmers Market At Old Salem!

You can enjoy fresh local produce, meats and eggs in beautiful historic Old Salem Saturdays from 8:30 am – noon.

Due to COVID-19 health concerns, the market has reserved 8:30 – 9 am for seniors and high-risk people to do their shopping.

Old Salem Cobblestone Farmers Market was voted #11 best farmers market in America by U.S. News Travel. Find unexpected treats at this market, like fresh gelato and live music from musical guests such as the Twin City Buskers.

Old Salem Cobblestone Farmers Market is located adjacent to the Single Brothers’ Garden and behind T. Bagge Merchant. An ATM is available. In its first year, 2012, the opening day of the market had over 1,600 visitors! We are so excited about the restoration of the traditional food system in our community. Support local farmers! Get there early for fresh eggs and the best selection. Don’t forget to turn in your empty egg cartons to recycle them and help the farmers even more.

So, Cobblestone has created a new way to get your local market goods. You can now shop your local vendors online and place your orders by Tuesday evening. Then, they will all be gathered together into your “cart” to be picked up on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6pm at 1001 S. Main Street in Old Salem. Your pick-up will be contact-free and done through a convenient drive-through.

EBT Funds Accepted

Operated by Cultivate Piedmont, a program of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, Cobblestone Farmers Market is the only farmers market that accepts EBT and WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program, and matching funds are available.

About The Author:

Born right here in Winston-Salem, NC, at Forsyth Memorial Hospital, Michelle is a native. At age one she moved to Virginia but after spending 30+ years moving around Virginia, Tennessee, Massachusetts, California and even Paris, France, Michelle returned home to Winston-Salem in 2004. A job at Hanes brought her here but the heart of the city has kept her here. Her favorite things about Winston-Salem are its welcoming people who call it home, its art-centric culture, and its perfect location at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains and a short drive to the beaches of the Atlantic. The lack of traffic is a pretty tremendous asset as well, especially since it gives her more free time to enjoy cooking and playing with her dogs, Bella and Lily. Michelle is one of the many residents of this great city who are thrilled to call this "My Winston-Salem"!

Hello! I work for Beta Verde, the company that manages Cobblestone Farmers Market. There is a mix of outdated information and current COVID-19 information presented on this page and we’re wondering who we should connect with to update? We want to make sure customers/residents are able to find us and know what to expect. Thanks in advance for connecting with us to update this resource! It’s hitting when we Google so we assume others are reading it too.
