Who We Are

Hub City Farmers’ Market is committed to increasing the supply, demand, and access to healthy, local food in Spartanburg County. We operate a fantastic weekly farmers market at Northside Harvest Park, as well as seasonal pop-up markets. We also staff a Mobile Market that serves the greater Spartanburg area, partially supplied from our Urban Farm. We also work on improving markets for local food, promoting positive food policy, and advocating for a sustainable local agricultural system. The infographic below shows the multifaceted, interconnected nature of our work:
