TD Saturday Market Presented by Greenville Health System
On Saturday mornings from the beginning of May until the end of October, two blocks of downtown Greenville's Main Street are transformed into a bustling farmers' market aptly named the TD Saturday Market. Cars waiting patiently for traffic lights or the perfect parking spot are replaced with roughly 75 white tents - each one housing a vendor selling the season's freshest produce-perhaps, red ripe strawberries in early June or singe-your-tongue hot peppers in late July- or the area's most original and high quality crafts. Each week thousands of people flock to the TD Saturday Market for locally-sourced products (all food must be grown or produced within 100 miles of Greenville and crafters are highly-encouraged to use locally-sourced supplies). Most come for the fresh produce or the handcrafted pastas and cheeses, some make it a summertime ritual-a place to meet friends over a decadent breakfast pastry or a place for the little ones to jig and jive to local musicians in the warm summer air and others come for the opportunity to take in a local chef's cooking demonstration.
