Hi, we're newbies to the city and loving it so far. I'm purchasing flowers for a non-profit event and trying to see if there are any inexpensive markets like where we're from, known as a Product Junction, to purchase these types of items. TIA for tips!

I haven't seen anything around here that is like Produce Junction but I would be interested to see if something like it exists. That place was tremendous.

The farmers market was covered up with flower vendors.

This is one of five Farmers Markets owned by the STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA and operated by the NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE & CONSUMER SERVICES. These Farmers Markets are strategically located across the state to serve North Carolina farmers, both large and small. They provide modern, well maintained facilities, in prime locations that are inviting to sellers and buyers.

If you are looking for a friendly place to shop for fresh produce, scrumptious baked goods, delectable jams and jellies, unique handmade crafts, and plants of every kind, you can find it all at the CHARLOTTE REGIONAL FARMERS MARKET. Here you can actually talk to the farmer who grew the freshly harvested produce and/or fruit. FRESHNESS is a way of life at the Farmers Market, and as a matter of fact, if it was any fresher, it would still be in the garden!

The Charlotte Regional Farmers Market is located at 1801 Yorkmont Road and is easily accessible from South Tryon Street, Tyvola Road, I-77, and I-85. For more information call (704) 357-1269.

Thanks for the info, I heard about this but didn't know the scoop. It's interesting to see this be local gov't run as where we lived previously this type of business was run by anything but the government as many employees were illegals. Then again, nowadays, who knows what entity supports who.

I just naively expected produce and flowers to naturally be cheaper down here. Thankfully, the local supermarket weekly deals aren't bad with the b1g1, could even be better than the Market.
