The Hub City Farmers Market is a producer-only farmers market that supports local farmers and educates the community on seasonal produce and nutrition. Founded in 2003, HCFM is the longest running farmers market in the Upstate, open every Saturday April-December and then the third Saturday of January, February, and March. Their Mobile Market is available starting in April at 18 weekly stops Monday-Friday.
Since the pandemic started, the Market has remained open in an effort to support our community. They have raised thousands of dollars to provide food for families in need and accepted and matched many nutrition incentives, such as Healthy Hero Vouchers, WIC, SNAP, Healthy Bucks, Pandemic EBT, and Senior Vouchers.
Their continued efforts to educate the public on healthy and locally sourced food can be seen in their outreach programs and at their Urban Farm! The Urban Teaching Farm is located at Northside Harvest Park and grows a diverse variety of organic produce that is sold on the Mobile Market and through local stores. Throughout the year, the Urban Farm hosts STEM-based education classes for all ages and provides a Summer Youth Farm Program, offering great resources for anyone interested in learning more about sustainable agriculture.
