Farmers' Market

The Leroy James Farmers' Market (previously known as the Pitt County Farmers' Market) in Greenville is a great place to buy fresh produce, baked goods, flowers, seafood, crafts, and home goods. You will find some tasty home grown, fresh vegetables and fruits. If you have a sweet tooth, there are fresh baked pies, breads, cookies, cakes and rolls available as well. Shopping at the local farmers market is also a great way to help support the local economy.

ATTENTION:
Due to Hurricane Matthew, the Farmers' Market is closed and being used as an animal shelter. Wintergreen Primary School on County Home Road will host a temporary site for the Farmers' Market on the following Saturdays: October 15 & October 22 with normal operating hours.

Market Hours:  Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays – 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Fridays – 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Note: Doors of the market will be opened one hour prior to posted opening times to allow vendors time to set up their booths.

Bring your family to learn about the benefits of fruits and vegetables while you shop for fresh produce at the market. 


FEATURED BAND: "Sounds of the Mountain"

The Nutrition Education Program would like to acknowledge and thank the Vidant Medical Center Foundation for funding the program this summer.  Without this funding, the program would not be able to operate.  Additionally, our gratitude is extended to the local farmers who donated produce for the healthy recipe demonstrations each week.  This summer, donated produce was received from: Briley’s Farm Market, Haddock’s Orchard, Smith Produce, Renston Garden Market, Romeo’s Creations, Smith Produce, Strawberries on 903, Village Creek Farms Produce and Yates Garden.


Don’t forget, the Farmers’ Market will remain open through December, so we encourage you to continue to purchase your fresh produce at the Market this fall.
