Found at Northside Harvest Park, the Hub City Farmer’s Market strives to bring healthy, local food to Spartanburg. It’s the longest-running market in the Upstate and only welcomes producer-only farmers. Here are a few of the vendors you can discover near our Spartanburg apartments:
COLFAX CREEK FARM
Colfax Creek began in 1901 after Lewis Hipp purchased a farm and settled in Howard Gap Valley. He sold his crops at Spartanburg and Asheville markets. Years later, his son Fritz took over and eventually planted apple trees. The farm turned its focus to apple production for nearly 50 years. Today, Aaron and Nicole Bradley run Colfax, and they raise healthy animals while caring for the land. Products include whole chickens, ground beef, and pork spare ribs.
YOUNG’S BACKYARD BBQ
Owned by the husband and wife duo, Carl and Dianna Young, Young’s Backyard BBQ can help enhance your favorite dishes. The couple believes that barbecue offers a way to bring families together. They encourage everyone to “savor the sweetness of life” and will offer suggestions, so your dinner turns out perfectly every time. Items include Sweet Heat barbecue sauce, Spicy Gold mustard sauce, and all-purpose seasoning.
Ellijay Mushrooms comes to the market from Georgia. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, this family-owned and operated farm began in 2018. The farmers believe in diversity and sustainability. They grow the mushrooms using fresh mountain water and state that “the fresher the water, the tastier the mushrooms.” You’ll find both shiitake and oyster varieties.
