Matthews Community Farmers Market

love MCFM. They have the best vendors and embody community. Love their produce, local handmade gifts, and fresh bread and flowers. Best farmers market in the charlotte area!
Matthews is kind of far from us, so we don't make it out this way often. We were coming for lunch and decided to come early for the farmers market. They have plenty of free parking off of the alley behind the market. I love not having to worry about finding parking. The market is really nice. It is still their winter hours until April, so it was only open from 8am-10am which I was surprised by. That seems so early to end. Especially because it's so much colder in the morning. I've been to a handful of the farmers markets around town and I think this is one of the nicer ones. They have nice stalls for each vendor. There's a good variety of produce and pre-made local products. We got a bagel and donut from Team Rose Bread as well as a bun from Bun Apetit. Everything was fantastic. We'll definitely come back in the warmer months when we can browse more and stay a little longer without being so cold.

There's a lot of fresh veggies vendors and alot of meat vendors. They also have specialty items like cheeses, pies, coffee, cookies and more. It's the best farmers' market around. I recommend!
Tiny but Mighty - This is a small, high quality market. They have solid vendors covering fresh produce, local meats (pork, fish), coffee, jams, honey, mushrooms, sauces, syrups, soaps and a few more non-food handmade items. We greatly enjoyed the bluegrass, too! There was one food truck. Overall, this market had a welcoming and fun atmosphere. It felt good to shop there. We got amazing spaghetti sauce, sausage, and peppers this trip. We have already planned our next trip and we will line up our weekly menu to take advantage of the offerings.
I am biased because I sell seafood here, but that's not what makes this place spectacular. It's the variety of producers who bring the absolute best product available. Great folks making incredible food and art...
