This Week

July 4th, 2015 at the Chatham Mills Farmers’ Market from 8 am – 1 pm

It is Customer Appreciation Day this week at the market! Our vendors like to take a moment, every few months, to let our customers know just how much we appreciate their presence and patronage each week. There will be free samples, provided by our vendors, for you to taste or take home and enjoy!  We will have live music, provided by The Haywood Billy Goats.  There will also be free refreshments provided at the market management tent, so please stop by for a cold drink and a sweet treat!

Dinner tickets and raffle tickets will be for sale at the market managment tent, as well as on our website. Please visit our Harvest Abundance page to learn more about this fun event.
