City News Podcast: Hub City Farmers' Market kicking off 2014 season, May 17
Council member Jan Scalisi to ring Farmers' Market opening bell
The growing season is well underway here in Spartanburg, and that means it's time for the Hub City Farmers' Market to kick off it's 2014 season at the Magnolia Street Train Depot on May 17 at 8 a.m. (click here for directions). Now entering its ninth year, the market routinely draws hundreds of people out to the old train depot looking to buy everything from local vegetables like kale, cabbage, and broccoli, to fruits like peaches and strawberries, to animal products like local honey, eggs (chicken and duck) and grass-fed beef.
Today on the podcast, we're talking with Hub City Farmers' Market Interim Executive Director, Brendan Buttimer about the upcoming season, as well as their upcoming move into a new space at the Northside Healthy Food Hub, which is under construction now. Listen below for more, and be sure to like the Hub City Farmers' Market Facebook page to stay in the loop on all of their latest news.
