Welcome to the Sanford Farmers’ Market!!
Saturday mornings, 8:30 a.m. – Noon
Downtown Sanford, NC
115 Chatham Street
April 22nd to November 11th in 2023
Come meet your local farmers and artisans and celebrate NC agriculture and craftsmanship with us at the Sanford Farmers’ Market! We offer a diverse selection of seasonal vegetables, fruit, meat, flowers, baked goods, crafts, and more, all produced within your community! Farmers markets are essential for farmers, food entrepreneurs, and artisans to support their operations and give consumers weekly access to seasonal fruits and vegetables picked at peak ripeness. We operate on Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to noon from April to November.
We look forward to bringing the community fun and educational activities all-season long! For example, check out our weekly featured Market Menu recipes, which are part of our Family and Consumer Sciences program and match what our vendors bring to market each week, hot off the press! Taste local by shopping local! See more details on Market Menu here. We’ll also offer educational programs, music, and special events throughout the season.
We also currently accept Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program vouchers at our market locations from July to the end of September.
We are excited for this new market season and hope you will join us throughout the year to help support, celebrate, and learn about local agriculture in our area. We’ll see you at the market!
