Discover Charlotte's Farmers Markets: A Summer Tour

This summer, we invite you to join us on a delightful journey through some of Charlotte’s best farmers markets! Our farmers market tour offers a fantastic opportunity for community members to immerse themselves in our vibrant local food culture.


This enriching program is brought to you through a partnership between the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Food Policy Council and Zealous Empowering Nurturer (ZEN). Together, we aim to foster a stronger connection between the community and local food resources.


What to Expect on the Tour

  • Experience Local Food Culture: Get a firsthand look at the diverse and fresh produce our local farmers have to offer. From juicy, ripe tomatoes to freshly harvested honey, you'll find an array of delicious and nutritious options.

  • Learn About Supportive Programs: Discover beneficial programs like SNAP Double Bucks, which helps maximize your EBT food dollars, and the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, designed to provide older adults with access to healthy food while supporting local agriculture.

  • Connect with Local Growers: Meet the passionate growers and producers who bring their goods to market. Hear their stories, learn about their farming practices, and understand the journey of food from farm to table.


Event Details

Participants can choose to ride with us on the bus or meet us directly at the market. This flexibility ensures everyone can join in a way that suits them best.

  • Transportation: Transportation is provided for all participants. However, seating is limited, so make sure to secure your spot early.

  • Pick-Up Location: The bus will depart from StoneBridge Church Community, located at 3700 Prosperity Church Rd, Charlotte, NC 28269.
