What all do you have?


Well, we have ALOT of pumpkins, fall gourds, heirloom pumpkins, potted mums and hay and corn stalks.  We have our 1945 Farmall tractor which is perfect for pictures and your welcome to jump on.  This year our great pumpkin is a 550lb massive pumpkin from upstate PA.  This was Amish grown and put on a truck and brought to us.  This is the biggest pumpkin we have ever had on display.  Our favorite is our Amish corn horses, the kiddos and adults love to ride these and they are strong enough for the adults too.  

It's ALOT of fall, ya'll but we also have everything you love about Union Market.  October is a great season for local produce and we still are getting our local black berries, fresh tomatoes and sweet corn along with many of the other items you have been buying all summer.  We bring fresh apples down from Moss Orchards in Hendersonville and have over 12 types of fresh picked apples for your selection.  Many of our local producers have their fall selections such as apple cider and fresh fall soups.  

If you have any questions please give us a call at 704-843-0227

We look forward to seeing everyone at Union Market this fall.
