Around 8:15 last Saturday morning, I pulled up to the intersection at W.T. Weaver Boulevard. I was running late for work when I had to wait
longer than usual at the intersection. Then it occurred to me that maybe this heavy traffic was Tailgate Market traffic. I watched and sure enough – every single car in that line turned up the hill into UNCA. What a thrill! Tailgate Market fans were showing up faithfully and celebrating the spring markets.
I hope its true that strawberries may show up at the market this week. Here are some of the upcoming Tailgate Market openings for Saturday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Next Saturday, May 5, a few more great Tailgate Markets open up…so stay tuned.
