Don’t miss the opening of the much-awaited Mount Pleasant Farmers Market tomorrow Tuesday, April 8 at 3:30 p.m. at Moultrie Middle School!
The market will feature over 40 vendors selling local farm-fresh produce, meats, sauces, baked goods and other specialty foods, as well as three prepared food vendors for those looking to grab dinner.
The family-friendly event has become a gathering place for locals and has inspired the market’s catchy slogan “Get Fresh with the Locals!”
Farmers markets are an integral part of a healthy community and have continued to rise in popularity, mostly due to the growing consumer interest in obtaining fresh products directly from the farm.
“Our market offers what people want: freshness, authenticity, value, and connections to the farmers who grow their food,” said Market Manager Tracy Richter.
Admission, entertainment and children’s 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. You’ll also find community information from the Town of Mount Pleasant and various nonprofit organizations.
The market is open every Tuesday from April 8 to October 14 from 3:30 until 7 p.m. For more information about the upcoming season, visit www.ComeOnOverMP.com or e-mail the market manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
