Another Farmers Market, Old Salem NC

It was probably already over 90 degrees by 11 am when we strolled through the Farmers Market in Old Salem, NC, so the shade was really welcome.

None of these vendors were in colonial garb, and we took our much appreciated Italian Ices as we walked past the Single Brother's Gardens.

The Single Brothers house is a huge construction, with different additions obvious.

It was not open for touring inside.

Back on the Main Street...

We found the marker for the first Krispy Kreme Doughnut Shop, founded here in 1937.  Apparently they didn't think preserving it would fit in with the rest of the Colonial type exhibits.  Tim and I were still eating our Italian Ices, otherwise we might have been bothered.


  1. Wow a marker for Krispy Kreme. I would not of thought that it was such an old business. It looks like a great place to visit.

  2. Interesting place to visit! I didn't realize that Krispy Kreme had been around that long!

  3. I love Old Salem though it's been many ears since I visited. Thanks for the tour!
