WNC Farmers Market hosts first classic car
and antique tractor show March 8 and 9

ASHEVILLE—Fire up that classic muscle car, vintage convertible or restored tractor and come to the WNC Farmers Market Saturday and Sunday for the first WNC Mountain Classic Street and Farm Show.

Show hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 8, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 9. Registration will be handled on-site, and entries will be accepted as long as space remains available.

“We wanted to feature the classic power that helped mold the mountains, so we decided to include classic tractors as well as cars in this event,” said Mike Ferguson, WNC Farmers Market manager. “Our retail building, garden center and the Moose Cafe will be open to provide great shopping this weekend, too.”

Entry fees are $15 per vehicle for both days for display space. Swap meet vendors can set up for $30 per day, and folks interested in selling a vehicle will be charged $20 per space.

A total of 11 trophies, including a best in show, will be awarded on Sunday afternoon. For more information, contact Brian Roberts at the WNC Farmers Market at (828) 253-1691 or e-mail at brian.roberts@ncagr.gov.

The WNC Farmers Market is located at 570 Brevard Road, adjacent to Interstate 40 and close to I-26.
