The Watauga Farmer’s Market was a delight. There were many organic farmers selling at this site along with a variety of other products. A vendor even sold orchids at this market – beautiful, and how I wish I could grow them… anyone out there have any ideas for me??
Let’s take a look, and if in the area, every Saturday from 8 a.m.
Near the Farmer’s Market is the Daniel Boone Gardens. This natural garden is a loving tribute with short walks, spots to rest, meditate, or simply soak in the beauty.
Squire Boone’s Cabin – This authentic cabin was reconstructed on the Gardens after two mountain boys dragged the cabin logs through snake infested underbrush. It is typical of what Blue Ridge settlers used in the 1700’s.
And what a view in front of the cabin..
Walk the Fern Garden while visiting as it is quite unique.
Across the street from the grounds are a picnic area with a playground for children. Great spot for a get together.
