Bluffton Farmers Market
August 5 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Thursday, happening 12 times
Fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, plants, and herbs abound at the Farmers Market of Bluffton. In this weekly community event, locals and tourists gather to buy excellent produce and enjoy delicious food, listen to entertainment, and relax with friends. Located in historic downtown Bluffton along with Calhoun and Lawrence Streets and through Carson Cottages, this family-friendly market showcases local growers, local food vendors, local entertainment, local community causes, and local information about the Bluffton area.
The outcome of a grassroots movement that began in 2006, this vibrant market opened in 2008 at the Bluffton Oyster Company Park on the May River and was managed by volunteers. Because of the enormous public response and its potential growth, the market moved to its present location. The current site serves the public better and promotes downtown Bluffton merchants to tourists and locals alike.
The market has been an overwhelming success. In the May 2009 issue of Hilton Head Monthly, Bluffton mayor Lisa Sulka describes the market as “our ever famous Bluffton Farmers Market. This beloved gathering only gets better as the season progresses.”
