Market Expansion Announced For 2017!

The Matthews Community Farmers' Market will be bigger and better than ever when it opens its main season market this springWe’ll be expanding to include a tailgate market in part of the grassy lot behind the current market site.

Starting on our April 15 Spring Opening Day, the market’s current site and the new tailgate market will operate in tandem on Saturday mornings. This means we will be adding quite a few new top-notch farmers, bakers and specialty food producers with new and more locally produced foods, including more in-demand products to give you more exciting shopping choices and a more unique customer experience. 
Concerned about parking, since the tailgate market will take up part of our current parking area? We’ve been given permission for our customers to park on the town-owned grassy lot (Charles Street entrance) behind the Pita Kabab building. It’s an easy walk over to our current lot, some of which will still be available for parking.
As you know, our beautiful, new chef demonstration patio, complete with seating wall, was installed late last year. Drainage problems were addressed and we’re soon planning to install a hand-washing sink for customers and chefs to use.
You’ll see a transformation of our grassy lot on Cotton Gin Alley soon. It will be regraded and resurfaced to make it more user friendly – both for customers and tailgate market sellers.
Stay tuned! There'll be more news to come!
