Bass Lake Farmers Market ~ Wednesday Evenings

Booths at Bass Lake Farmers Market

This summer on Wednesday evenings through mid-September, there will be a farmers market happening at the Pines Village in Bass Lake. The booths are located in front of Good Ol' Daze. Admission is free for visitors.

We went to check it out one Wednesday evening in June and found just a handful of booths, but many visitors and a lot of fresh produce and flowers for sale. Everyone looked like they were having a great time.

Here are some scenes from the Bass Lake Farmers Market:

Lettuce and Greens for Sale

Busy Shoppers ~ Lots of Fresh Veggies

Fresh Summer Squash & Peppers ~ cute young girl

Green Onions & Basil ~ fresh herbs piled high

Fresh Chard in many colors, Collards, Kale & Carrots

A nice and healthy way to spend an evening outdoors!

Fabulous photos, I was guaranteed the veggies were organic, not certified due to the cost of organic registration, but still organic.

The booths looks fabulous, better artistic displays than most grocery stores. The veggies were fresh looking, and there were piles of them, and lots of buying going on.

The locally grown flowers were very colorful to. It's great to have farmers markets like this in our mountain community.
