On the eastern edge of Blairsville, located on Old Smoky Road just north of Hwy 515/76, is the very popular Union County Farmers Market. The Market is located within an excellent elongated outdoor, covered pavilion protecting vendors and shoppers from the elements of rainy weather and hot sunlight.
There’s ample parking and room for 65-vendors under the large roofed pavilion, offering visitors access to local growers of various sizes. Vendors display varieties of fresh produce, along with canned foods, bake goods and beekeeper’s honeys. There are also several concessionaires and handmade crafts by local artisans, plus plants and flowers for gardens and home. These choice products draw shoppers from both near and far to enjoy the wonderful opportunity of purchasing home grown and handmade products.
This popular Farmers Market is much more than a place to buy particular items; it’s a destination for fun, and education for all ages. Most vendors often share their skills with the public on how their particular produce is grown, and how handcrafted items are made.
The site of the Union County Farmers Market lies on the old Charlie and Grapelle Wimpey property. Both were active members of the Union County Historical Society, Charlie farmed the property with his father, and Grapelle served as Union County Elementary Principle for 46-years.
The Market is open June thru October
Tuesday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 pm
