Construction Has Begun!









After a year of fundraising and planning, work has begun on market improvement projects. The first phase, installing a drainage system, was started this week in preparation for the installation of a beautiful new cooking demonstration patio. The $12,000 project by Legacy Landscaping Inc.  will be finished in the next ten days, weather permitting. Construction materials will be cleaned up in time for market on Saturday. In any event, please excuse our appearance while we are under construction!
Market Expansion Announced!

The Matthews Community Farmers' Market will be bigger and better than ever when it opens its main season market next spring

In addition to our current market site, we will offer a tailgate market on part of what is now our grassy parking lot on Cotton Gin Alley. We plan to add  quite a few top notch new vendors to our market family of outstanding farmers, bakers, specialty food producers and artisans. 

Are you a local farmer, baker or craft artisan interested in applying to be a vendor?  Please click here for more information.

We're also adding more customer parking - available on an adjacent  town-owned grassy lot behind the Pita Kabab Grill  - to make up for space lost to the new tailgate market.

Stay tuned for more details to come!
