About Zadie’s Market

Zadie’s Market is focused on connecting farmers with consumers. We build relationships with Western North Carolina’s most passionate growers to bring  high quality fare to peoples’ plates, whether they’re dining at home or in our eatery in Marshall.

Zadie’s was founded in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The delivery service gave farmers a sales outlet and inspired us to create new ways to distribute food throughout our region.

Zadie’s will launch its first brick-and-mortar location in Summer 2021 in the Old Marshall Jail. This historic building sits in the center of Marshall, North Carolina, on the banks of the French Broad River. Renovated by artist Josh Copus, the building tells the story of life in this Appalachian town. Upstairs, a 6-room boutique hotel draws guests from all over the country.

Downstairs, Zadie’s Market is a small grocery store  with a market and bar. A small indoor dining room is perfect for the winter months, but the real draw is the expansive outdoor space on the banks of the river.
