You’ll have beautiful views of the Blue Ridge mountains from this Farmers’ Market. Landrum is in the northern part of the county, in horse country, and this market shows off this picturesque town.
This is a producers market, so vendors must grow or make everything they sell. Usually 40 vendors set up for this weekly market with around 20% being craft vendors. You’ll find handmade pottery alongside collards, honey, fresh breads and flowers. Most weeks feature live music. And then there are the surprises, like the prepared Lebanese food, the Venus Flytraps for sale, and the shiitake mushroom festival. Things you might not expect to see at a South Carolina farmers market. The Shiitake Festival is put on by local growers who demonstrate inoculating oak logs, provide samples of shiitake butter and cream, and have shiitake logs for sale if you want to harvest your own.
It’s a farmers’ market beside a railroad track and it is full of surprises. Grab some Kilimanjaro coffee, talk with the locals, perhaps pick up some pottery or other handmade items, and enjoy the views of this southern town.
