Market on Wheels
One of the highlights of working with Extension is occasionally escaping from the office to interact with folks and farms in the county. A quick visit to the Wednesday Watauga County Farmers market in the K-Mart parking got me to open my wallet to some fresh produce and honey. I also got to check in with Bill Moretz, President of the Watauga County Farmers Market and local farmer. He was getting ready to deliver a trailer full of CSA shares. Each week in the summer, he's delivering bushel boxes of produce to the hospital for staff to enjoy some of the fresh produce the High Country has to offer. You can also find Bill and other local farmers at the Watauga County Farmers Market on Saturdays and the Blowing Rock Farmers Market on Thursday afternoons.
