2016 Saluda Tailgate Market

A larger, tastier variety of Okra
Wild and cultivated mushrooms
Friday afternoons from May through October
If it's summertime in Saluda, then its time for the weekly Tailgate Market that takes place on Friday's from 4:30 to 6:30 in the afternoon. Located in a gravel parking lot on the side of a hill, some of the individual booths will get full shade, but others choose to set up in the sun in order to sell things like cool and refreshing lemonade.

We saw some large, beautiful broccoli
Shopping at any farmer's market always involves simply looking around to see what is being offered, and by mid-summer the Saluda market is over-flowing with fresh vegetables and other offerings. Mushrooms like Shitake and Chicken of the Woods are available, while another vendor was selling stromboli with local meat ingredients, we found farm-pond raised rainbow trout too, and there is even a cake lady.
