Our Vendors

Obviously, the Catawba Valley Farmers Market would not exist without our wonderful vendors. 
These folks work very hard throughout the year to provide their wares to the public. 
It goes without saying that we appreciate each and every one of the folks that participate
in our effort to bring fresh, nutritious food to our market.

Frank & Pam Garman

Walnut Hill Farm

In continuing with family tradition,
Frank and Pam Garman have acquired the Walnut Hill Farm business from Frank's parents,
Frankie & Louise Garman.
They raise healthy grass-fed Angus cattle that are antibiotic free. Their beef products are processed under USDA inspection and the meat
is vacuum packed before being frozen. 
The beef is sold as steaks, roasts, London broil and ground beef.  The Garmans also sell Apple-Wood Smoked bacon, mild pork sausage,
as well as country ham slices.
As Catawba Valley natives, Frank and Pam are willing to share their knowledge of Catawba history. Feel free to reach out to Pam
with questions about their meats,
cooking suggestions and recipes.
Steve & Pam Hall

Hall Gardens

Steve and Pam live within a mile of the Farmers Market, so their produce truly is local!

It is also very fresh since most of it is pulled, picked or cut the morning of the Market.

Nothing excites Pam more than getting to
dig in the dirt.  She loves to plant tiny seeds, watch them grow and then produce cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, or radishes. 

Steve is the tractor operator, getting

the garden spaces ready for planting.

In addition to their produce, the Halls

also sell apples, peaches, pickles,

jams and granola.

Steve sometimes has his handmade

baskets available.
