Mint Hill Farmers Market
I do reviews in a couple of different places. I dont get anything from posting other than satisfaction if somebody agrees with my recommendation and if it helps. We have so many fabulous places to visit we are blessed. Here is a local one - I cannot believe Ive lived in North Carolina all these years and only recently went to the Mint Hill farmers market. At least I think thats what I call it. Please, if someone else has more details share here so that I dont speak out of turn. However, we went last Saturday and its now our favorite place every week to visit!!!!!! We purchased the most amazing cheese bread (oh my god this thing was so freaking heavy, but to heat it up and eat it? It was beautiful and such an experience of foodie comfort! FYI? My fianc made homemade croutons out of the end of the bread so that nothing went to waste and it did not disappoint!) I tasted some blueberry biscotti, we got to talk to some fabulous people about local history and everybody seemed to have a seat at the table. There was a mix of small locals with just a couple of things to sell, and then there were some farms that had more to sell. However, all of it in my opinion from what I saw was very very affordable. It was very reasonable. If youre in the Mint Hill area, if youre looking for something fun to do? Take a drive over! This farmers market, and by the way thats my label: farmers market, Im not sure if its some thing else. We talked to some of the historians that support the area and theres so many cool places to visit! An older gentleman actually took the time to talk to us and explain about the mill. OK folks, Im calling it a Mill, its a stone in the ground but you really need to ask about the story of how it got there. So cool! Please please please take a drive over and take a quick look at everything. Oh!!! look at the venue! How cool is this building?? Its the newest wooden building, but I held my phone up to the doors to take pictures and it looks like you can use the venue for weddings, dinners etc. OK I know this is super long so Im just gonna stop here. Take a drive over on a Saturday morning. Totally worth it, I dont know and I cannot attest to whether or not somebody from the historical society is there every Saturday? However, we were lucky enough to talk to a gentleman and it was just a great experience. OK lastly, lastly, look at the video I posted of the musicians. Holy cow, how cool is that! I have to tell you just standing there listening to them was a treat. To be able to sit with a cup of coffee and maybe a piece of homemade biscotti from one of the vendors? Truly I feel like this is a very quaint and enjoyable experience for anybody local. We WILL be back each week though!
Absolutely fantastic experience I have a couple of favorite Vendors Bianca Bible. Bianca does the most incredible hand made art work including calligraphy by hand! Then there is Connie the most incredible crochet artist I have ever met! Connie is absolutely the Crochet Queen! There are many other wonderful Vendors selling everything from homemade treats to fruits and veggies, candles, and much more! A very family & pet friendly environment!
Great space for kids of all ages!!! We missed the farmers market but the property is beautiful.
Love all the small business vendors here. Youngs Produce had everything today. Okra, eggplants, mangos, cantaloups, red and orange watermelons and so much more. Lots of history here. Take a walk around the block and check it out.
Not too crowded, great stuff, unique products, cool atmosphere, a REAL North Carolina look back to simpler times. They did a great job preserving the old feel, of how it used to look. Support local!! So special to have the access to these goods. A cool cheap Saturday Morning. Mint Hill!! See Yall Saturday!
