Welcome To The Matthews Community Farmers' Market! 
Hours: Saturdays 8am - Noon 
 Rain or Shine - Free Parking - Most Vendors Accept Credit Cards - No Dogs Allowed
At our farmers' market, you buy directly from the local producer - the person who grew it or made it. You'll find lots of freshly harvested produce, naturally raised meats, handcrafted cheeses, fresh eggs, local honey, plants, baked goods, specialty prepared foods and hand-crafted items. But, we're more than a farmers' market. For 26 years we've provided a lively community gathering place in downtown Matthews to shop, nibble, relax and meet your neighbors. Come enjoy all we have to offer, including live music, cooking demonstrations by top local chefs and family activities!
 Upcoming Events: July 22

Cooking Demo: 9am
Come find a seat on our new patio and watch Jason Newman, sous chef of Barrington's Restaurant, Charlotte, use local ingredients to make tasty dishes.

Music: 9am
