Might I add that if you're interested in NOT owning a car, the Swamp Rabbit Trail system is currently 14 miles long and growing. It currently connects Travelers Rest, Furman University, Greenville (downtown, Alta Vista/Cleveland Park, Parkins Mill area), and the Conestee Nature Park. Access to it will allow you easy access to some amenities via biking or walking.

OP based on your posts it seems that you have not visited Greenville....if not then some advice would be to make a few visits....then you will understand why a car is a necessity there. Downtown Greenville is pretty but during your visit be sure to see the other areas too.

I don't really have time to write about why I like Spartanburg, but I have before, so you can search for my posts if you choose. Nope, we're not Greenville, and that's OK.

Oh, and Spartanburg DOES have a food co-op: Hub City Co-op (http://www.hubcitycoop.org/index.html - broken link)

Of course you have a great number of intown urban farms popping up, as well as multiple farmers markets....all either walkable, bikeable or easily reach by Greenlink.
Don't forget the Saturday Market downtown on Saturday mornings from early May thru October! It's a "pop-up" farmers market with more of a street fair feel, and grows every year.
