Farmers' Market celebrating 10 seasons in Spartanburg

 

Late last year, one of the most anticipated developments in recent memory opened on the Northside. Harvest Park, the first project completed as part of the Northside Initiative, today provides Northside residents with access to fresh, locally grown foods through both Hub City Farmers' Market and through the Butterfly Foundation's Monarch Café, something crucial in an area of the city classified as a food desert, with a convenience store formerly serving as the only place in the neighborhood for food.


Now entering their first full season at Harvest Park, Hub City Farmers' Market has some plans to take their new home, and their organization to the next level, starting with their first opening day in the new space on March 28. Today on the podcast, we're talking with Hub City Farmers' Market Executive Director, Brendan Buttimer to get the lowdown on what we can expect this year from Spartanburg's favorite source for locally produced food. Listen below and enjoy.
