Clayton Farm and Community Market

Clayton Farm and Community Market opened in April of 2009 to a crowd of enthusiastic supporters. Since then, it has grown and is always looking for new locally produced food vendors. Our vendors come from within 100 miles of Clayton, and most of the food is produced within 50 miles.

We are located at 348 E. Main Street, Clayton, NC. This is the corner of Lombard Street and Main Street and is also known as Horne Square.  Currently in our 8th year, our regular season goes from the first weekend in April until the last weekend in October from 9 am to 1 pm. We also participate in several events throughout the year in coordination with other organizations in town. We continue a winter season opening alternating Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm. We also have two holiday markets during the winter season.
