MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (March 24, 2018) – Wagons are overflowing! Mark your calendars for the opening of the 2018 Mount Pleasant Farmers Market April 3 at 3:30 p.m. at Moultrie Middle School.
The weekly market features vendors selling local farm-fresh produce, meats, sauces, baked goods and other specialty foods, as well as prepared food vendors for those looking for a unique meal.
In its 21st year, this highly anticipated market opening is also a celebration of the hard work and dedication of each farmer and the harvest they provide for locals, visitors and restaurants alike.
Farmers markets are an integral part of a healthy community and although numerous markets have opened since Mount Pleasant’s debut, attendance continues to grow year after year. Several new farmers have joined the market this year.
“Our market offers what people want; freshness, authenticity, value, and connections to the farmers who grow their food,” said Market Manager Tracy Richter.
Now hailed as a gathering spot for locals, patrons can grab dinner from prepared food vendors and dine under the broad oaks all while listening to live music during the event. Each week enjoy the acoustic sounds of local country, rock and soul musicians.
The fun continues with a special kids’ area where each week a new craft or activity awaits to spark any child’s creativity.
Admission, entertainment and activities are free, and plenty of free parking is available behind Moultrie Middle School, along Ellis St., and in a designated area at Moultrie Plaza.
The Clemson Extension Master Gardeners are available onsite each week to help solve most pesky gardening problems. In addition, each week at the community table you can learn how various nonprofit organizations are serving the area and what you can do to give back.
The market is open every Tuesday from April through September, 3:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. For more information about the upcoming season, visit www.ExperienceMountPleasant.com or e-mail the market manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
