Alderson Community Market open Tuesdays

The Alderson Community Market is open every Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Greenbrier Interpretive Center (old Gulf Station) located on Route 3/12 by the old bridge in Alderson.

The outdoor market features live music, free activities for children, workshops and demonstrations, and a diverse group of vendors selling fresh local fruits and vegetables, local chicken, beef, and pork, eggs, handmade crafts and personal care products, baked goods such as pepperoni rolls and croissants, canned goods, plants, and a variety of prepared foods. Several vendors also accept Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Vouchers and the market accepts credit, debit, and EBT cards.

The market is a project of the Alderson Community Food Hub whose goal is to strengthen the community and local economy by creating opportunity for people to buy and sell locally produced products in a family-friendly atmosphere. The market is also a drop-off point for the Waste Not / Want Not project where surplus produce is donated and given to those in need.
