Need a simple activity that helps you slow down while promoting small, local businesses? Try checking out a local Farmers’ Market. The one in Greenville, SC, is right on Main Street between Washington Street and Court Street on Saturday mornings from 8AM till NOON.
It has everything from coffee and classic Southern breakfast items to fresh breads and pastas, handmade candles to local photography and art, all-natural meats, seafood, and tons of local, fresh produce. It’s a chance to meet new people, be active, and get some fresh air. Plus it’s a great little community and culture that everyone should experience on a regular basis!
