Get your fill of fresh, homegrown fruits and veggies by checking out one of several farmstands across Spartanburg County. These shops bring the best of the best from local farms straight to you. Explore the Hub City Farmers Market on a Saturday morning and get up-close and personal with some of the area’s coolest creations.
You don’t even have to love vegetables to enjoy a morning there. While most of the twenty to thirty vendors have a lovely green leafy display, you can also find Little River Roasting Company coffee, Blue Moon Specialty Foods’ pimento cheeses and great sauces, local eggs and beef, and a variety of homemade things such as soaps, candles and bowls. And in the summer … peaches, galore!
Grab a quick lunch at Strawberry Hill USA and make sure to save room for ice cream! Once your belly is full, venture onto a local farm for seasonal activities and tours. Local farms are family-friendly and provide a detailed look at the farm-to-table process that’s on display at many local restaurants.
Book a room before venturing out again to get some goodies to bring home with you.
Belue Farms Natural Foods Market specializes fresh local produce, local honey, pastured meats, grass fed Angus beef, free range eggs, artisan cheeses, sweet and gluten free breads, Milky Way Farm raw milk, and Southern specialties like jams, jellies, salsas and relishes.
Head to brunch or lunch at one of Spartanburg County’s farm-to-table restaurants before you go!
