Takeaway: The Corner Farmers Market in Lindley Park has personable farmers and vendors where you can pick up everything you need for a good meal in a setting where the whole family is welcome.
Greensboro has many hidden gems, and the Corner Farmers Market at the intersection of Elam and Walker in Lindley Park is one of the brightest! Vendors set up their tents in the parking lot of Sticks & Stones each Saturday morning from 8 till noon.
The market was born from the efforts of Neil Retzel of Sticks & Stones, Stephen Johnson of Elam Gardens and Mike Faucette of Faucette Farms. The market is a great place for beginning vendors, as there’s no rent to pay. The guys try to make sure there’s a good variety of products (there is!) and activities for the kiddos.
One of the most distinctive aspects of this market is the laid back, friendly atmosphere. Kids are welcome and although the market gets a fair number of shoppers, there’s plenty of room to navigate between vendors.
As a bonus, you can also get a full breakfast at Sticks & Stones on Saturday mornings and if there’s anything you need that isn’t sold at the market, Bestway is just a short walk up the street.
Next Saturday, June 27, 2015, is Blueberry Day at the market—a great day to make your first visit to the Corner. Enjoy!
