Making Tuesday feel like Friday

If you made it out to Mauldin’s farmers’ market last year, you noticed some big changes. Mainly that we moved to Tuesday night and made it feel like a Friday.

The 2019 Mauldin Farmers’ Market, sponsored by Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, keeps getting better.

Running from June 4 through August 27 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Mauldin Cultural Center’s amphitheater, the Mauldin Farmers’ Market, sponsored by Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, features a variety of vendors from across the Upstate offering locally-sourced and produced items that include produce, dairy, eggs, honey, gifts, clothing, accessories, treats, pastries, and more.
