Have you ever loved the idea of traveling to the country to find a farm on 10 acres of land, totally secluded from the busy "outside world"? This Saturday (tomorrow) do just that! Escape the city, the loud noises of construction, lawn mowers, planes flying over, and speeding cars, to shop locally sourced vintage, handmade and new pieces from some of your favorite local vendors. Discover some new artists and a gift for yourself or for friends. Continue reading to see who will be set up, what to expect and how to prepare to have a great time on the farm!
June 1st, 2019 (This Saturday)
10am - 4pm
2106 Becky Drive, Bahama, NC 27503
Free & Family Fun.
Highs of 80. Low Chance of Isolated Thunderstorms. Clear Skies during Market hours so come on out!!
What to Bring
Keep in mind that this event will be happening mostly outside. With that said, please bring walking shoes, comfortable clothing, sunscreen, bug spray, sunglasses, and cash for anything you'd like to purchase or your card. Since, you have escaped the city, there may not be the best reception out here, so please have a plan B if a vendor's card reader doesn't go through. All of our vendors should be prepared for cash sales.
As you pull on to the property, you will find a large pasture to your right. One of our parking assistance will help direct you to your parking spot. If you are handicap, please alert a volunteer and we will direct and assist you to the handicap parking. Please lock your cars and keep all valuables on you or hidden away. Farm Luv and the volunteers, who are hosting the event, are not responsible for any damage, lost or stolen items. Please be responsible and safe. When you get our of your car, watch your step and follow the signs to the Market!
Walk to the Market
From the parking, you will find yourself walking a bit of a distance down the gravel driveway to the Market. Please follow the signs and stay on the path.
Meet the farm animals, and help welcome our newest members of the farm, Ace, Maverick and Lily, three of the sweetest goats you'll ever see. Walk through the barn where you'll pass by Bucky, Lexi, and Orion's stalls. We would love for you to gently show some love to the animals, but do remember that they are animals and we can not control everything that they do. They will be contained, but if you would like to pet them, do so at your own risks. As long as you're friendly, they're friendly. The only food that the horses will be able to eat is the hay provided in the barn. If you'd like to feed a handful just ask a nearby volunteer for assistance.
Please check out our local vendors! See their social media links for sneak peeks of what you'll find at the Market.

We will be opening up our camper to those who need to breastfeed in cool air, take care of minor injuries or illnesses, change diapers, or just escape the heat and cool off and re-hydrate. Your safety and care comes first. We want your experience to our Markets to be one to remember.

See you there!
