Davie County Farmers Markets Every Wednesday & Friday – Admission is free and the benefits are endless!
Farmers markets provide an opportunity for local farmers to get together in a social setting along with members of the local community.  These gatherings strengthen communities, create a sense of belonging and ownership, and often lead to greater involvement in local issues by those who share a common interest in healthy environments and healthy lifestyles.

Save Money at Davie County Farmers Markets
One of the reasons to shop at a farmers market is to support the local economy.  Everyone benefits when dollars stay in the local community. The farmers are supported and can continue to grow their crops, and the money spent stays in the community rather than being shipped elsewhere.  This helps the local economy thrive.

Farmer’s markets in North Carolina are not taxed which saves you money by making the products purchased a greater value. In essence, a person is getting 6.5 percent more product for their money through the elimination of sales tax.

Live Longer Consuming Local Produce from Davie County Farmers Markets
There are distinct health benefits to eating local, fresh produce.  One of these benefits is that fresh produce is harvested when it is ripe.  The greatest amount of vitamins naturally found in produce is available ONLY when the crop is picked ripened.  Most chain stores purchase produce from other states, and therefore the crops are picked early and ripen off the vine in a truck.  This renders the vitamins much weaker to the consumer.

Another health benefit is that because the produce is not shipped, it does not need to be waxed or treated.  This again gives the produce not only an excellent flavor, but also makes it a healthier choice. Finally, most area farmers markets offer organic choices, eliminating pesticides from your diet.

Have fun, save money & live longer by frequenting your Davie County Farmers Markets.  Your family will thank you.

Daniel Boone Family Festival, Saturday May 5th, will Dish up Food, Fun, Music and a Heapin’ Helpin’ of History

Free Community Event! 10 AM to 8:30 PM
On Saturday, May 5th, Historic Davie will host the Daniel Boone Family Festival in Historic Downtown Mocksville.  Featuring local artisans,  historic reenactors, Fort Dobbs, historical tours throughout the county, food,  contests and live music, and a kids area with free pony rides, inflatables and balloon artistry, there’s something for everyone at the all-day event which runs from 10 a.m – 5 p.m. Live musical entertainment will continue until 8:30 p.m.

Retrace the Steps of Daniel Boone, the Revolutionary War, Historic Homes and More!
Daniel Boone spent nearly 25 years in the Yadkin Valley area, and two of the three tours revolve around landmarks associated with the Boone clan. The big attraction for Boone buffs are the tours that run at 10:15 AM, 12:30 PM, and again at 2:15 PM.  Tours are $5 and are provided by bus or van.

These tours include stops at historic Joppa Cemetery, where Daniel’s parents Squire and Sarah Boone and his brother Israel are buried (Israel’s grave is the oldest in the cemetery); the Boone Tract at Bear Creek, a 640-acre parcel of land granted to Squire Boone in 1753 and later sold to his son Daniel; the Daniel Boone Marker in Farmington; and nearby Pudding Ridge, where General Cornwallis crossed Dutchman Creek in pursuit of Nathanael Greene (Cornwallis named the area for the thick mud in the area his troops had to march through).

A tour departing at 11:45 AM also visits Joppa Cemetery, Bear Creek, and the Boone Tract,  but adds tours of the Jesse A. Clement House (built in 1828) and Historic Center Arbor, constructed as a site for “camp meetings” during the Third Great Awakening in 1876.

The last tour, which departs at 1:15 PM, takes visitors to the River Park at the Bull Hole; Veach’s Muster Ground; Revolutionary War hero Richmond Pearson‘s grave site; and the Historic Zachary Holt House and Village Museum of Cooleemee, both of which have exhibits centered around the area’s once-booming textile industry.

Tours are $5 and are provided by bus or van.

Rounding out the historic flavor of the festival will be the presence of reenactors from Fort Dobbs in Statesville.  Fort Dobbs re-enactors (Fort Dobbs was the site of a battle between settlers and Cherokee warriors in 1760.)
