The TD Saturday Market presented by Greenville Health System marks its 16TH season May 5, providing farm-fresh produce, baked goods, meats, cheeses, seafood and other specialty foods to Main Street in downtown Greenville each week. This year’s market features 77 vendors and will run from Court Street to Washington Street.

The market opens its season with 65 returning vendors, including Bake Room, Beechwood Farms, Bellews Market, Greenbrier Farms, Sixteen Acre Wood, Spinning Spider Creamery, Swamp Rabbit Café & Grocery and The Happy Berry. New vendors will feature vegan health bars, homemade pies, granola, artisan cheeses, gourmet marshmallows and fresh produce, including apples, strawberries, tomatoes and watermelon.

Once again this season, TD Bank partnered with the City of Greenville for the TD Bank Bucks program. Created to support local farmers, vendors were invited to apply for TD Bank Bucks that would fund their market fees for the full season. This year’s recipients are Jackson Farms II, Whispering Pine Farm and Merciful Hearts Farm.   

“TD Bank is thrilled to continue our partnership with the City of Greenville as the title sponsor of the TD Saturday Market for the 16th consecutive year,” said Cal Hurst, Regional Vice President for TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®. “We are proud to give back to three deserving farmers with our TD Bank Bucks program, and we are looking forward to supporting them, along with the other farmers and vendors, at another successful market.”

Along with providing fresh produce each week, the market will feature the Spuds & Sprouts program presented by Greenville Health System. The free program will offer weekly programming that will educate children about some of the fresh fruits and vegetables available at the market. In addition, children will have the opportunity to sample different fruits and vegetables and make crafts related to agriculture.
