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!
