Cashiers Village Green Market opens May 27

Choose the food less traveled at Locally Grown On the Green, Cashiers farm stand market for local growers beginning Wednesday, May 27.

The market is “producer only” meaning that the vendor must be the grower or producer of ALL the products they sell.

Locally Grown On the Green is open during the growing season from 3-6 p.m. every Wednesday at The Village Green Commons on Frank Allen Road next to the Cashiers Post Office. During this time of physical distancing, the green market will follow best practices to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our customers and vendors. 

Customers should plan to bring face coverings and gloves to shop.  Only one household member will be allowed into the market and the number of customers permitted to shop will be limited to provide ample space between shoppers who will follow a one-way traffic pattern. 

Vendors must produce within a 125-mile radius of Cashiers. That means that the season for each fruit and vegetable is longer. Shopping at the Locally Grown On the Green market provides a forum for learning how food is grown, who grew it, and why it tastes so good.

Fill your basket with naturally raised meat and dairy items, fresh eggs, jams, pickles, freshly baked bread and delicious granola. Set your table with fresh cut flowers that morning or plant your entryway with locally grown perennials. Always fresh. Always local.

No dogs will be allowed this summer. Market hours will be strictly observed; no early shopping.  Customers should stay home if they are experiencing illness of any kind. Vendors will also follow the same procedures in addition to safe set-up and sanitizing practices.

Special market events are planned throughout summer with the lessening of COVID-19 restrictions.  Be sure to visit the market website HERE.

The Village Green provides a beautiful, free public park for the people. However, it is privately conserved by a nonprofit organization that depends on contributions to maintain the park and provide such an exceptional venue for the community.
