Welcome To The Matthews Community Farmers' Market! 
Hours: Saturdays 8am - 10am (Winter Hours Through March) 
 Rain or Shine - Free Parking - Most Vendors Accept Credit Cards - No Dogs Allowed
We are the largest, most diverse producers-only farmers' market in the greater Charlotte area. All food and other market products, except fish, are grown, raised or made within 50 miles of Matthews.​ 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!

Buying locally grown foods supports local farmers and the local economy.

 Tailgate Market Update

Our winter market began on December 2, with shortened hours 8 am to 10 am, every Saturday through March.  Please note that there will be no tailgate market during this winter season.  The following tailgate vendors will be re-located to the traditional market during this time:
Rowland's Row Family Farm: center tent booth between Cannizzaro Sauces and Grateful Growers
Gilcrest Natural Farm: center tent booth next to Chef Charles Catering
Chili Mama D's Gourmet Salsas: perimeter booth between Carolina Artisan Breads and Windcrest Farms
Lil Rebel Bakery: perimeter booth between Summer Star Farms and Tega Hills Farm
Queen City Bakery:  perimeter booth next to Good Cup Coffee Co. 

We believe this consolidation will benefit the vendors and enhance our customer experience.
