Wrightsville Beach Farmers Market open for business, despite the Labor Day holiday


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — While many had Monday off for Labor Day, vendors at the Wrightsville Beach Farmers Market spent the holiday hard at work.

It was packed with both locals and tourists trying to pick up fresh produce, crafts, and much more.

The market has been held every summer since 2009 and promotes quality of life while providing a venue for local growers and crafters.

Business generally lightens up after Labor Day at the market, but one local farmer says he’ll continue to sell his produce through the end of the season.

“It seems like everybody has a good time. We give out samples of course, so they know what they’re getting. Anytime you can get it straight out of the field’s better than going to the grocery store. A lot of people say it’s local, but if you really buy from local farmers, you know it’s local,” said Ronnie Edens, the owner of Edens Produce.

If you didn’t get a chance to head to the Farmers Market today, you can still check it out through the end of October.

It’s every Monday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Wrightsville Beach Municipal Grounds.
