There are lots of things to be excited aboutand fresh produce is definitely one of them! The month of May is here and with it comes some of my favorite local fruits and veggies. Here’s a list of all the yummy produce you can expect to see at the market this time of year:

  • Strawberries
  • Asparagus (first part of the month)
  • Assorted greens (Collards, Turnips, Henpecked, Kale, and Mustard)
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Sharp-head cabbage 

There are also several other local items that will be available as well:

  • Eggs (free-range)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • soaps and lotions
  • CBD infused bath salts
  • Pork Rinds and Skins
  • Fried Peanuts

There are all these goodies to look forward to and more at the Lenoir County Farmers’ Market located on 100 Herritage St Kinston, North Carolina, open on Saturdays from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. Kettle Style Snacks will be there on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. (Vendor times may vary slightly.)

Don’t forget to adhere to COVID-19 safety signs and regulations. Enter at the end of the market near the handwashing station.
