Eat Locally!


During your vacation, we'll help you find local produce and other regionally grown foods. Each Tuesday and Saturday, Marion hosts a tailgate market at 67 W. Henderson Street, in the heart of downtown. Thursday between 2:30 and 6:00 pm Old Fort's farmers' market takes place on the grounds of Mountain Gateway Museum.  Stop by 24 Water Street.

Listen to Tou Lee, a local Marion farmer describing the conditions at his rice field.  Lee and his family operate Lee One's Fortune Farm.  Their crops are an important part of western North Carolina's Hmoung community.
