According to a press release from the City of Hendersonville, Saturday's Hendersonville Farmers Market has been called off due to the potential heavy rain coming from the impact of Tropical Storm Ian.

"For the safety of our vendors and public, the Hendersonville Farmers Market will be canceled... while we are a rain or shine market, this weekend's anticipated weather event has the potential to create an unsafe environment and we do not want to add any possible strain to our emergency management partners," the city said in the release.
The Farmers Market will continue the following Saturday, Oct. 8.
