As the Summer months begin to dwindle down, we look forward to the cooler temperatures and lower humidity that accompany the Fall season. What better way to embrace what’s left of the summer free time than to explore your local Farmer’s Market with your friends, family or furry friend! We love supporting local farmer’s and collecting local produce while enjoying the atmosphere of our neighborhood.
The Summerville Farmer’s Market (https://summervillesc.gov/267/Farmers-Market) is open every Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm April 13th through November 23rd. You can enjoy live music in the Market Café from 10:00am-1:00pm. Fresh local produce, meats, seafood, baked goods, plants and flowers, jewelry and homemade items/crafts are just a few of the many things that can be found while exploring the Summerville Farmer’s Market.
Late Summer/early Fall is the perfect time to find seasonal produce such as apples, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupes, eggplant, herbs, peaches, peppers, raspberries, squash, tomatoes and watermelons.
There are so many benefits that come along with buying fresh, local produce! Not only does the locally-grown produce taste better, but it is usually more nutritious. The produce is picked at its peak ripeness (often times within 24 hours of your purchase) for that perfect farm-to-table freshness! Remember, when you buy local, you are helping to support the local economy.
The city of Summerville and its residents really love to focus on local events and creating a friendly community for the whole family to enjoy. The Farmer’s Market is held in the heart of downtown Summerville so you can include a nice stroll through the beautiful Flowertown, stopping in the local shops and boutiques, restaurants, wine bars, ice cream shops, parks and more!
