The NC Peach Queen was on hand. We take our peaches seriously here.
This farmers market is one of the state-owned facilities in North Carolina. They hold event days for many NC crops, including strawberries, greenhouse tomatoes, watermelons and blueberries. During these events the market partners with Commodity Associations (NC Strawberry Association, NC Watermelon Association, NC Blueberry Council, etc.) to promote NC crops.
