2014 Farmers Market Opening – Jun 6th, 2014

The Greensboro Farmers Market is an open-air market where local farmers sell their freshly grown produce. We only allow farmers who actually grow their own produce to sell at the market. Unlike other places that allow people to go buy vegetables and then resell them, The Greensboro Farmers Market insures its customers that they are buying fresh, HOME GROWN products, never bought and re-sold products. Please come down to the market and talk to our farmers and see why buying local is the best way to feed your family fresh produce!
