It's that time of year again- the beginning of fresh fruit and veggie season! There is an abundance of fresh produce in the Upstate, and an abundance of places to shop for it, as well, in addition to you-pick, which I will cover in my next blog.
There is the State Farmer's Market, on Rutherford Road, Greenville, open year round, where you can find milk, cheese, meat, and other items, in addition to fresh produce. There is also a nice selection of plants and flowers for your garden.
The TD Saturday market is held in dowtown Greenville, on Saturdays from 8:30-12:30, starting on May 9 this year and ending in October, offering meat, honey, and much more, in addition to fresh local produce. Here is more info about the TD Market: http://www.saturdaymarketlive.com/pages/
The Farmer's Market in Travelers Rest, just north of Greenville, is held every Saturday morning as well, starting in May, featuring fruits, vegetables, honey, baked good, meat, crafts, and more. http://travelersrestfarmersmarket.com
The Earth Market, part of Slow Food Upstate, will be held at the Roper Mountain Science Center, in Greenville, the third Thursday of every month until Novemeber 19, starting May 21. Hours will be from 2-6 PM.
I hope you will check out some of these markets- it's strawberry season now- get them before they're gone!
