Farmers Markets are an expanding tradition in the south, bringing locally grown and created goods to cities all over the upstate. The newest in the Golden Strip opens Saturday, June 3 in Mauldin, and will have a focus on health and wellness.
The BeWell Mauldin Market, as it’s called, is sponsored by Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. The season runs through August 26, and each week will feature free healthy activities like small-group fitness, health screenings, and cooking demos.
On the agenda for Saturday’s opening day: free CPR training by Bon Secours staff.
The well-rounded vendor list includes produce, dairy, eggs, honey, gifts, clothing, accessories, treats, and pastries. (View the full list here.)
West End String Band will perform for opening day, sharing the sounds of bluegrass with shoppers.
While many vendors will be able to take credit or debit cards, some will be cash only. Guests may also want to bring their own reusable shopping bags.
The market will take place from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM each Saturday, and will be held at the Mauldin Cultural Center amphitheater, 101 East Butler Road.
