Farmers’ Market

For the finest and freshest North Carolina has to offer!

Every Wednesday from 8 AM – 1 PM

April 1 – November 18 & Tuesday November 24, 2015

Mission

The Farmers’ Market at Poplar Grove was established to provide a retail outlet for local growers and producers to sell their goods directly to consumers. The market strives to educate consumers on local farm products and practices, promote the use of local products and serve the community through programming and activities.

Get to know your farmer, your baker, your artisan maker! One of the great opportunities at the Farmers’ Market is the interaction with the people growing, catching, baking and producing your food and other products. Shopping with our local growers and producers for fresh produce, landscape & bedding plants, herbs, baked goods and the best in handmade art & craft items at the market is an awesome experience! The grounds of beautiful historic Poplar Grove Plantation will be open on market day, there is easy access from highway 17 and plenty of free parking. Join us on opening day and every Wednesday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM to meet and support our truly local growers and producers!
