We started Zadie’s Market because we are farmers. Our sister business, Carolina Flowers, was founded in 2016 to supply the Asheville area with flowers for weddings, events, wholesale and everyday enjoyment. Carolina Flowers is also a delivery company, with an emphasis on bringing flowers to homes throughout the area.
Asheville’s community of farmers is full of colorful, driven growers and entrepreneurs. We have loved every minute of running a business in sustainable agriculture.
When COVID-19 shut down many of the restaurants in the Asheville area, we wanted our fellow farmers to be able to offer their products via delivery, alongside our flowers. So we started an online grocery store, where bunches of kale were listed alongside flower arrangements.
Asheville showed us it is ready for grocery delivery. We’re so proud to forge a connection between some of the best farmers in these mountains. Our grocery store became Zadie’s Market, and our flower business continues to grow as Carolina Flowers.
Our Home Base
Zadie’s is based in the small town of Marshall, North Carolina, about 20 minutes north of Asheville. We pack and ship our deliveries from our hometown, and this location puts us in close proximity to some of the area’s best farms. We’re proud to represent a new vision for agriculture in a former tobacco community.
Zadie’s will open its first brick-and-mortar location in the Old Marshall Jail, a historic landmark in the heart of Marshall. The boutique grocery concept will include the freshest produce from local farms alongside specialty goods, a bar, a restaurant and an expansive deck and patio with a view of the French Broad River.
Upstairs, we’ll hosts guests at our small hotel. Learn more about the Old Marshall Jail at oldmarshalljail.com.
