Kings Drive Farmers Market


From April through October, my Saturdays usually include a trip to the Kings Drive Farmers Market. Packed with fresh produce from local farms, the market is a less expensive alternative to store-bought produce. When the husband is not in tow, I can usually wander the market for hours, stocking up on fruits and veggies, picking out new plants for my porch, and selecting the perfect bouquet of flowers. Here are some pictures I snapped from our trip last weekend...

  and my favorite reason for shopping at the farmers market...
 ...GORGEOUS flower arrangements for dirt cheap!


If you live in Charlotte, you must take a trip this summer! The market is located at S. Kings Dr. and E. Morehead St. and is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

  3. When I lived in Elizabeth this was my Farmer's Market every Saturday. Now that we live farther South Brad and I hit up the BIG Farmer's Market off Remount Rd. every weekend.
    I always want to take pictures but figured people would think I was a freak! LOL! You look cute with the peaches :)
