The mission of the Travelers Rest Farmers Market, a producer-only market which is organized and managed by a volunteer board of directors, is to provide fresh, local produce directly from farmers and growers to residents, to support local farmers and vendors, to educate the community about healthy eating and sustainable living, and to provide a weekly social experience for the community. The Market will open its ﬁfth season on May 11th at a new city-owned park now under construction at the former site of Travelers Rest High School at 115 Wilhelm Winter Street.
For the ﬁrst time, members of the Travelers Rest Arts Alliance (TRAA) will participate in the Market, offering a variety of arts, crafts and musical entertainment.
The Market will be open weekly May through September, featuring locally grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables, prepared foods, ﬂowers, plants, preserves and jellies, bread and baked goods, honey, cakes, pies, goat milk and goat products, and more.
