For many it seems that all is right with the world when the farmers, foodies, and artisans in the market vendor family are gathered on the courthouse grounds on Saturday mornings. Come rain, wind, or shine; you can count on them to show up so you can start your weekend with the best local shopping around. There’s something new to experience every time.
Now in June, the market has settled into a smooth groove. Beginning about 7 in the morning, vendors start setting up their tents and tables, organizing and displaying their products, and getting ready to greet a cadre of shoppers. The mood is light, friendly, and full of anticipation of what the market holds for that day. Then at 9:00, with the ringing of the cowbell, the market is open for business!
In stroll young folks, old folks, children, folks with their dogs, parents pushing strollers, shoppers on a mission to buy fresh, locally grown veggies and meats for their menus for the week, others heading for a cup of coffee and a homemade biscuit…all out to soak up the joy that fills the air in the shade of the live oaks. This scene has become, in the words of a supporter, the “heartbeat of the community,” reminding us of the small town goodness all around and available each weekend at the market.
We encourage you to make the Olde Beaufort Farmers’ Market your happy place and a part of your weekend wellness routine. Come shop with and support our hard working local small business vendors. Come greet and have a chat with friends and visitors. Come enjoy the ambience of the courthouse grounds, and leave feeling a little lighter, a little cheerier, and a little happier, knowing that you are vital to ensuring the success of the market.
May your summer days be filled with good health, happiness, peacefulness, and love.
I’ll see you there.
Summertime at the
Olde Beaufort Farmers’ Market...perfect!
Delicious Food, Lively Fellowship, and a Beautiful Event!
The 5th annual Olde Beaufort Farmers' Market Farm To Table Dinner returned this year to Harborside Park on Front Street to the delight of a sold out crowd. The meal was sourced from market farmers, fishermen, bakers, local vendors and businesses. Chef Jon McGregor of Clawson's and Aqua restaurants with his staff prepared the delicious fare for the dinner. A beautiful evening found our guests enjoying their selections as the evening sun slipped to sunset over sailboats making way down Taylors Creek and listening to the music from local musician Robert Lee while enjoying adult beverages, laughter and conversation. Market Manager Cindy Bunch was pleased to award this year's scholarship to market OBFM Student Intern, Gus Stoehrer Jr. We wish him good luck in his studies this fall. We wish to thank all who contributed to this wonderful event and our guests who support our scholarship and intern programming. As it has been printed in the local newspaper, "A good time was had by all."
