Greens & Things Farmer’s Market

Located in the Pleasant Valley community, this market provides easy and affordable access to fresh produce for residents currently living in a food desert. Pleasant Valley Connection and Maranatha Farms are leading the market’s efforts while collaborating with other organizations including, the American Heart Association and LiveWell Greenville. Residents are able to shop for fresh produce from some of the most highly regarded farmers in the Upstate. This weekly market is open each Sunday from 10am-3pm and accepts SNAP/EBT and also doubles SNAP benefits up to $10, meaning when shoppers swipe their SNAP card at the market manager booth, they will receive $2 in market tokens for every $1 spent. This means double value on some of the freshest local fruits and vegetables around town!
