The Pitt County Farmers’ Market on County Road Home in Greenville is a great place to buy fresh produce, baked goods, flowers, seafood and support the local economy at the same time.

The Farmers’ Market, in fact, is a very popular market, so arrive early as parking can be a challenge. There is no admission fee but most vendors prefer cash payments, so you may want to factor that in when you visit.

According to the NC State University Cooperatiave Extension website, the market drew 80,140 visitors and 1,433 vendors during the 2012 season.

Naturally, produce availability is dictated by growing seasons, but the market is open from March through December, so there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find some tasty homegrown, fresh vegetables and fruits.

If you have a sweet tooth, there are usually fresh baked pies, breads, cookies, cakes and rolls available as well.

The Pitt County Farmers’ Market is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, call 252-355-7612
