Elkin Main Street Advisory Board

Elkin Farmers Market 

In 2012, the Main Street Advisory Board realized the importance of the Farmers Market to Elkin's community, and wanted to help this initiative grow. They made an effort to help promote the Market and invest in the local farmers who brought fresh, quality produce to the community. In 2012, they set aside funds to market Elkin's Saturday morning market events, provide live music, create a website, and provide directional signs, created t-shirts and market bags, all which increased vendor and visitor participation 300%. We are looking forward to future growth and have more exciting plans in store! 

In 2014, the Main Street Advisory Board funded accessories for the new market shelter that was built with a grant from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Foundation.  The MSAB  paid for the new market sign, the picnic tables, bulletin board, directional signs and other small items.  

In the future, they hope to fund the addition of ceiling fans and an shade awning on the east-facing wing of the shelter.
