Sandhills Farmers & Heritage Market

fm market day.jpg

Sandhills Farmers and Heritage Market is Cumberland County’s only farmers market that links history and culture with high-quality fruits, vegetables and specialty food items from local farmers, gardeners and entrepreneurs.

Come for the fresh produce and stay for the zumba demonstration. Take advantage of free health screenings, bring the kids for fun nutrition education events, learn about bees and sample the honey, sample the results of healthy cooking demonstrations and, on very hot days, enjoy a cup of mango-flavored Italian ice. Don't forget the vendors who bring natural products, artistic and cultural wares  and information

for enrichment and education.
