Ernie Thurston was hired by "North Carolina Agricultural Marketing Project" in Raleigh to begin and organize a market in Hendersonville during the summer of 1979.  To this day, Mr. Thurston is proud of what he started and how the Henderson County Tailgate Market has grown over the years.  Click below to view Mr. Thurston's collection of photos. He is the one holding the Farmers' Fair banner in a couple of the photos.
