Preview of Ol’ Timey Day in Hendersonville

Drive along Church Street in downtown Hendersonville, and you will find the Curb Market. The Curb Market is a quaint indoor market that is open three days a week- Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. This market has been a part of Henderson County since 1924. The Curb Market began its life as a way for farmers to bring their extra produce to town, but over the years it has expanded and appeals to locals and tourists alike. At the Curb Market, visitors will find farmers and artisans selling fresh produce, flowers, cheese, baked goods, and handmade crafts. In fact, all of the goods in this market are required to be either handmade or locally made. The Curb Market is open year-round and is a nice indoor alternative to seasonal farmers’ markets.

Every fall, the Curb Market hosts Fall ‘Ol Timey Day. This year, ‘Ol Timey Day is on September 28th beginning at 8:00 am and lasting until 2:00 pm. Fall is truly spectacular in Henderson County as we get to enjoy a host of locally grown apples and vibrant fall color filling our mountains- this season deserves to be celebrated. Eventgoers will experience that well-deserved celebration of fall as well as a celebration of Hendersonville’s history. The aroma of warm biscuits and sausage gravy will waft through the air and visitors will love watching as its cooked on unique, antique wood-burning stoves. Live bluegrass and folk music will be played all day and help put shoppers in a festive mood. Children will love listening to the music and the chance to pet two live goats at Ol’ Timey Days. Little ones will also love the opportunity to get their faces painted.

I have attended this event with family before, and it’s a fall treat that we all enjoy. My son was fascinated by the old fashioned stoves, and we all loved eating the warm biscuits with sausage gravy. Shoppers will enjoy the local produce and handmade goods such as festive fall wreathes. Strollers can easily maneuver through the aisles of the Curb Market, but this event can get crowded, so I suggest getting to this event early if you will be bringing little ones. Admission to this event is free, but be sure to bring along some cash to enjoy the freshly made biscuits and sausage gravy or locally grown produce.
