About the BIPOC Farmers Market
Southside Community Farm hosts a monthly BIPOC farmers market as a way to make healthy, fresh food available in our neighborhood and to promote local craftspeople and farmers of color. The market is the first Sunday of the month, May-October right next to Southside Community Farm. Besides our own fresh produce, you’ll also find many other local Black and brown vendors at our EBT-accessible market. Our previous vendors have included: Tierra Fertil, Soulful Simone Farm, Melanin Rising Co., Tha Madd Baker, WolfMother Medicines, Burton Street Peace Gardens, Shiloh Community Garden, Wadadli Dessert Oasis, Xaka Leon, The AppaLatin Farmstead, Cora’s Garden, and many more. This event is open to everyone. Come visit Asheville’s only BIPOC farmers market!
