Welcome To The Matthews Community Farmers' Market!
Hours: Saturdays 8 am - Noon (Main Season Hours Through November)
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 27 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.

Our Annual Peach Fundraiser continues this Saturday with Ruby Prince peaches . This good-sized cling peach - great for eating, canning and baking - has a beautiful ruby skin color, yellow flesh and a flavor that's the perfect blend of sweetness and acidity. All profits go towards market operating costs, so thank you for your continued support.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PEACH FUNDRAISER STAND IS LOCATED IN THE TAILGATE AREA NEXT TO CODY FARMS.

Kids and adults will be fascinated by the honeybee observation hive at the BeeCityUSA booth this Saturday (adjacent to Quench!Essentials). More importantly, folks can learn about how critical these essential pollinators are to the world's crops and how they are facing global decline due to habitat loss, pesticide use and disease. Matthews was the fifth city in the nation to be designated a Bee City by creating sustainable habitats and conditions for pollinators. Stop by and talk with Matthews resident and beekeeper Will Krauss, who will answer any questions you may have. Kids can pick up fun activity sheets to take home.
