About Us

The name Third Day Market came to life in the summer of 2016. On the search for a name the represented our faith and love for all things that grow, Genesis 1:13 found its way into our minds, and we quickly realized we had found our home.

 

12: And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

 

13: And the evening and the morning were the third day.

 

In our logo you will find two leaves cradling the sun and opening like a flower pod. This represents nature, new beginnings, hope and growth.

Family Values

We are a full service garden center, nursery, home décor and gift shop serving the Northwest corner of North Carolina. We are a family-owned and operated business where we take pride in providing everything you need (and more!) to bring out the best in your home and garden.

 

20 years ago, this dream started out as a road-side stand at this same location. We would sell pots and hanging baskets during the spring, and switch over to pumpkins and mums during the fall. Now, we are known for our expansive greenhouse full of seasonal plants, and our famous Pumpkin Patch.

 

We have over 25 years of experience as a licensed landscape contractor and run one of the top property maintenance companies in the area. We love our NC mountain home.

 

We thank our loyal customers who have stuck by our side since our very first days. We strive to continue to bring quality products to our area and offer professional, individual and personalized service.

Our Locations

Meet Our Staff

Don & Jennifer Smith

Owners
Don and Jennifer are the owners here at Third Day Market. They live just down the road in Grassy Creek, NC, where they grow Christmas trees and over 250 acres of pumpkins (that can be found in our pumpkin patch!) When they’re not farming or arranging displays here at the market, they enjoy spending time with their 4 grandchildren, Harlow, Hayes, Olivia, and Landrey.

Kaitlin Carpenter

Manager
Hi, everyone! I’m Kaitlin. I’m the one behind the computer here at Third Day Market. I am the daughter of owners, Don and Jennifer Smith, wife to my husband, Sid, and “mama” to two of the wildest children you’ve ever met! I love my job here at Third Day Market- this has always been a dream of mine to open up a home and garden center.

Melanie DeBoard

Sales Associate
Melanie is our "flower child" both in the greenhouse and inside the market working on custom arrangements. She's a walking thesaurus when it comes to gardening and loves to bring people happiness with their landscaping and plant choices. She once called SpongeBob "square bottom sponge guy" and makes us laugh every day! You can catch her spilling plant knowledge on Mondays during "Market Monday" on Facebook!

Meghan Jones

Sales Associate
Meghan is our warehouse manager and a greenhouse team member! She's hilarious and a hard worker, and once nursed a hummingbird back to health in the greenhouse. She is a wife, mom to two cute kiddos, and a fabulous baker! You may recognize Meghan from when we sold pumpkins roadside back in the day!

Watering Staff

Meet the next generation of Third Day Market employees! These feisty littles are the grandchildren of owners, Don and Jennifer. (From L to R)

Landrey- The daughter of Sid and Kaitlin, she is the current youngest out of all the grandkids. But don't let that you fool you, she's 3 going on 13! She loves playing barbies and has never met a stranger- in fact, she LOVES all the attention! You may see her following in her mama's steps around the market!



Harlow- The oldest and the "mother" of the group. She is the daughter of Josh and Amanda Smith. She is in the 2nd grade and is already on her way to the top of Third Day Market! She has a entrepreneur's heart- you may be lucky enough to catch her on a Saturday selling lemonade!



Olivia "Livi Kate"- Livs is also the daughter of Josh and Amanda and the younger sister to Harlow. She's tiny but mighty, and her little voice is mightier! She loves unicorns and laughing and takes home something "cute" from the market every time she visits!



Hayes- Hayes is Sid and Kaitlin's first born and the only fella of the grandkids! He loves visiting the market and has the biggest imagination! You may find him running in a "Jungle Temple Run" around the market or playing swords! He's the sweetest little boy you'll ever meet!

Allison Yount

Meet Allison! She is one of the designers responsible for the beautiful displays you see downtown and at the market! She has a background in interior design and a unique eye for beautiful combinations! She also runs our online sales. She is a lover of Jesus, a good book, and enjoys spending time with her family. When she's not working, Allison is traveling across the world doing her part in making the world a better place.
