After church on Sunday, the relatives we were visiting took us to the Farmers Market Restaurant. The home-style Southern dishes were very tasty. I enjoyed the fried chicken with mac & cheese, squash casserole and okra with tomato. My husband had the BBQ pork with greens, sweet potato casserole and coleslaw. Everything was great except the coleslaw, which was average.... More

Food like an old style diner with a country flair. Place opened in 1952 and looks to be pretty much the same. Their cornbread rolls are terrific and if u want more they r happy to give you. Their soup of the day was corn chowder and it was great. We had burgers with sweet potato fries and mashed potatoes... More

My wife and I found the restaurant by accident. My wife had the buttermilk pancakes which were wonderful while I had the traditional breakfast of 2 eggs sunny side, sausage, hash browns, grits and English muffin. The best breakfast I have had in this area! We plan to go back for dinner as they have a nice choice of dinners... More

Tripped into this restaurant at lunchtime and liked it so much that I went back for breakfast. Small town atmosphere and homemade Southern cuisine. The menu was varied, the portions were great, the food tasted awesome and the prices were very good. The staff were entertaining and very pleasant....again, it felt like dining in a small town, not a big... More

Our food was great. I got the baked chicken with cornbread dressing and was pleasantly surprised. My mother in law and grandma got the ribs and didn't like them. The cornbread was also very good. They had a table waiting for us even though we were 15 mins past our reservation. I will definitely be back!

We ate here with friends for dinner this time no it was busy. We got there early though so got a table fairly quickly. It is a noisy place when its busy so it was hard to talk. The food however was another story as it was excellent. We all had something different from the menu, but each was delicious.... More

Very moderate restaurant with a great southern menu. The available sides looks like a true southern family dinner with specials every day. They also have a daily early bird special from 4-6 which is a cheaper version of the daily specials. The breakfast was plentiful at very modest prices. They also have great pies as any appropriate southern restaurant would,... More

I loved this place. The food is excellent. It is "just like mom made it." The waitress was friendly. The place is clean. I had a feeling that it was more of their regular customers rather than snow birds. Maybe they want to keep all that great food to themselves!!!

Our favorite as always. Home made yeast roles can't be beat. Only complaint, there is never enough room left for their fabulous looking desert.

We found the Farmers Market Restaurant via Trip Advisor and were very VERY pleased. It's a hidden gem. Produce is certainly fresh and flavorful as it is purchased from the Farmers Market next door. Make sure you get the smoked ham with your breakfast. They were also smoking ribs and chicken for dinner tonight. Amazing! Betsy and her team do... More
