About Us

The Friends of the Farmerís Market is a volunteer group that supports the Greenville Farmerís Market. We wish to nurture the continued growth of a healthy Farmers Market that supports both our local farmers and the Greenville community.

The Friends sponsor certain seasons of the year. During the sponsored season, from the hours of 8am to 11am on Saturdays, the Friends can assure you that all vendors are verified local (within 100 miles) and that all of the items that are available for purchase have been grown or produced by the vendor (no-re-selling).

The vision for the Farmers Market is to provide improved variety, freshness, taste, and nutritional value of produce available in the Greenville area. The Market will assist in enhancing the quality of life in Greenville by providing a community activity that fosters social gathering and interaction, and preserves Greenville's agricultural heritage. To quote J.R.R. Tolkien: ďIf more of us valued food and cheer and song above horded gold, it would be a merrier world.Ē† Indeed.

No culture has ever survived if it couldnít feed itself. The strongest communities are the ones that feed themselves.
