The Farmer’s Market in Greenville has been a tradition almost every week for over 100-years.  Producers from miles around provide seasonal and local produce, hand crafted items, jams, jellies and soap.

You can depend on at least a dozen vendors to be in place when the starter pistol “bangs” at nine o’clock on Saturday morning.  You better be there because the produce goes quickly.  Today eggs, tomatoes, okra, squash and purple hull peas sold out in less than a hour.  Expect cantaloupes and melons to be available next week.

Susan Ferron of Leonard has up to fifteen varieties of jams and jellies available.  Dill pickle slices were very popular today.  There are three other farmer’s markets in the Greenville area besides the original on Market Square. You can find them in McKinney, Commerce and Farmersville.
