This Month at the Market: August 2017

by Lacey Eibert Keigley

It’s no exaggeration to say that the Travelers Rest Farmers Market is award winning and trend setting.  Each Saturday morning (from 8:30 to noon) at Trailblazer Park you can find a plethora of folks selling and buying local produce, crafts, meats, food, pottery and so much more.  You can listen to bands, do group yoga, sample pralines and coffee, buy a popsicle, let your kids make a craft and meander through the tents and the vendors to fill your grocery bags and your stomachs with all things local and delicious and interesting.

We are thankful to be a market sponsor this year.  At the beginning of each month, tune in here to find out what’s in season and who’s on stage and what food truck will satisfy your hunger.  Come back often and stay informed.  We’re happy to help.






What’s in Season This Month

Take advantage of what is growing right now for the freshest options.  And – stock up.  The freezer can be your best friend.  Store the extras in their freshest state.  Trust us, come January when you’re feasting on corn on the cob, you’ll be thanking us.  Or better yet – invite us over for dinner to share the bounty.  We’ll bring the jam.

Green beans
Sweet corn
