The Enka-Candler Tailgate Market’s purpose is to promote local agriculture and heritage crafts in Western North Carolina, to provide the Enka-Candler community with a market for fresh local produce and other quality products, and to serve as an educational resource. It is run by Asheville Farmstead School, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation, along with an Advisory Committee, volunteers, and involved community members. Proceeds from the Market will be given back to the community in the form of school and camp scholarships at Asheville Farmstead School, as well as other local community outreach, at the guidance of the Advisory Committee. We are open Thursdays, 3:30-6:30pm during each Market season.
