Clemmons Farmers Market

Recently, I sent an email to Mr. Buffkin:

Farmers Market on Tuesdays starting at 3:30 p.m.?

Who, in their right mind, would schedule an event, which is supposed to bring in retail customers to shop, at Village Hall at the height of the afternoon rush hour? And, at one of the most congested intersections in the Village?

That is insane!

Has anyone checked the traffic count on Route 158 in front of the Hall during those hours on that day of the week?

We have enjoyed the Market at Village Hall on Saturday mornings. At that time and day, it is possible to enter and exit the parking with little difficulty.

Please, tell us that the Farmers’ Market is still on Saturdays.”

I have not received any reply. Does the Clemmons Courier know the answer?

Editor’s note: The Clemmons Farmers Market is no longer on Saturdays but will now be held on Tuesdays from 3:30-6:30 p.m.
