Stimulating the senses: Local growers, crafters show off twice a week at Wilson Farmers Market

Thank you for being one of our most loyal readers. Please consider supporting community journalism by subscribing to The Wilson Times.

An array of aromas, a collection of colors and a variety of vegetables greet visitors of the Wilson Farmers Market.

The beans are bountiful, the tomatoes are teeming and the onions are overflowing.

Organized each year from April through September by Historic Downtown Wilson and the Wilson Farmers Market Association, the market brings together local produce in addition to a growing number of locally created goods, including cut flowers, baked delights and homemade soaps. There is something for everyone.

The market is open twice a week: each Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 207 W. Green St. and each Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the Wilson Fairgrounds located at 2331 U.S. 301 in Wilson. For more information, call the North Carolina Cooperative Extension office in Wilson at 252-237-0111.
