The Black Mountain Tailgate Market is a Saturday morning open-air shopping event featuring organic and sustainably grown produce and proteins, native plants, freshly cut flowers and herbs, artisan-made bread, pastries, and cheese! Our little market also features live music, children's activities, and hosts and array of local artists and crafts people as well as kid-entrepreneurs. A family event with an intimate, community feel, we're in the business of spreading sunshine - every Saturday from May through mid-November.

Our market season is from May 6, 2023 to November 18, 2023.
While we let our farmers and artisans rest and recharge for the winter, we are cooking up an array of events and activities to keep our little market fresh! In May, we'll be coming in hot with a lineup of talented Local Musicians to serenade market-goers, improved infrastructure and unique market features, volunteer programs, and exciting new collaborations with local non-profits. We can't wait to see all your smiling faces in May! Stay tuned for what's new at the Black Mountain Tailgate Market!
