“Nice local market”

Union County Farmers Market
Ranked #8 of 32 things to do in Blairsville
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We first went here on a Saturday morning and was happy with the produce. Several ladies had homemade jam. A few crafters. The big hit was the meat man. My family bought sausage biscuits with meat only made the day before. Talk about fresh. during the week they are open again and some of the same as Saturday but other people there too. Has room to expand. Parking managed well. They put our new clean car in a nice and convenient location. Gets a little muddy when rainy.

I start at one end and walk the market - then walk back thru knowing where I want to stop for tomatoes, corn, peppers, squash, and so much more. Whatever is fresh from the local farmer's fields. One can also get local sausage, honey & along with homemade goodies. There are also artisans selling their wares. On Saturdays (and Tuesday afternoons) it is only farmers with locally grown food & the artisans with their crafts that they have made. Don't confuse Saturday with Trash & Treasure which is just what it says - it's on Thurs & Fridays.

This was such a disappointment!! We went hoping for jams, jellies, syrups, honey, veggies and such. This was only a junk, flea market. There was one person that had a few peas and corn! DO NOT GO, unless you are looking to pick up someone's trash! Again, hugely disappointed. Maybe just the day we picked, but the are not open much, so think this may be more the norm.

I'm lucky enough to live in Blairsville year-round, and this is my favorite thing to do on Saturdays in the growing season. I always find good, fresh produce, and it's nice to talk with the local farmers. Plus there are tempting baked goods like homemade bread, and I enjoy seeing the crafts. The folks who run the market are on hand and talk with everyone. They come up with many entertaining themes through the year and sometimes have cook-offs and food sampling. We even toured the community cannery last year. Definitely should be on visitors' list to do.

The Union County Farmers Market has become the heart and soul of Blairsville. It has become not only a gathering place for local farmers to sell their harvest of fresh produce, flowers and crafts, but also a gathering place for residents of the surrounding communities to meet and greet. The Union County Farmers Market season runs from June 7 through October 25. It is open on Tuesdays 3 PM-7 PM and Saturdays 7 AM-1 PM. There is a different themed special event every Saturday that runs simultaneously with the market. This past Saturday was Bubba's BBQ Blast where local BBQ backyard legends held a cook off. There was live music, samples galore and judging at the end for the king of the pit. Next Saturday's theme is the Egg-stravaganza where there will be a presentation of every sort of egg dish. If you love fresh, locally grown produce and also love special events with a carnival atmosphere, be sure to visit.
