2018 Tailgate Market & Saluda Arts Festival

This May will bring back two annual events in Saluda, the Saluda Tailgate Market & the Saluda Arts Festival.

The Tailgate Market is held from 4:30-6:30 every Friday from May to October, beginning Friday, May 4th. Located in the West Main parking lot, the market is operated by volunteers from the Saluda Business Association, & it serves the City of Saluda, Polk County Agricultural Economic Development, and growers from both Polk and Henderson counties. Local producers are connected with consumers to keep food dollars in the community and support regional fresh food and family farms, thereby protecting the flourishing of beautiful ridges, fertile fields and clean watersheds.

The market has been a spring to fall Saluda tradition since 2010, with neighbors gathering to meet growers and purchase a complete and balanced array of meat, fish, poultry, eggs and cheese, seasonal vegetables and fruit, baked and preserved goods, flowers, herbs, and plants for the home gardener.
