Union County takes pride in our agricultural roots. In 2007, County Commissioner Lamar Paris organized a committee to oversee the development of a local market that would give our growers, big and small, a place to sell their goods. It was decided that artisans, beekeepers to bakers and potters to painters, could also sell their handmade goods. So when we boast “Homegrown and Handmade”, you know that you are purchasing products that have been produced right here in this area!
Food purchased at a local Farmers Market comes with outstanding freshness, quality, flavor, and variety. You know exactly where your food comes from and how it was grown. Additionally, you support a sustainable regional food system that helps small family farms stay in business, protects land from development, and provides all of us with fresh, local food.
The growers and artisans that sell at the market are remarkable folks. Stop in today and visit with us here at the Union County Farmers Market and savor all that is home grown and handmade! We also provide a list of the participating growers & artisans with their contact information - just in case you can’t wait till market day to get your bushel of corn or a special handcrafted gift.
Look forward to seeing you at the Market!
