Access Carolina: Discovering the Charm of the Bridgeway Farmers Market!

Access Carolina 5-21-24

Welcome to the enchanting Italian-style Bridgeway Farmers Market, a new favorite among locals. Hosted every Thursday evening from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM in the new heart of Mauldin, this market offers a one-of-a-kind experience with its picturesque setting and vibrant social activities. Executive Director of Ola Markets, Adrienne Hawkins, highlights the market’s unique hours, catering to those who can’t attend early morning markets in this interview with Margaret Burnquist for Access Carolina.

A Feast For The Senses

With 90+ vendors, the market is a true feast for the senses. Enjoy live local music, delicious chef demonstrations, exciting kid’s activities, and hands-on classes led by local experts! The variety is especially astounding this week — from smoked brisket and pulled pork tacos to the teachings of a special vegan caterer and the Havana Taste food truck, whose plantains are to die for, there will be a little bit of everything. Expect a sea of strawberries, plump juicy peaches, and other fresh produce from local farms like Beechwood, Hyder, and Barnes Farms.

Spotlighting Local Art

Meet Cathy Mobley of Cedar Lane Creative, an artist combining photography and painting. Her works, inspired by childhood memories and local city scenes, include unique pieces like PB&J and tomato sandwich art, the iconic Liberty Bridge in downtown Greenville, to heartfelt end-of-life pet portraits with her work through The Tilly Project. She is just one of the talented local artists showcasing their work each week under the stars at the market. Amongst her are some of the most skilled creators in the Upstate and surrounding areas. You’re guaranteed to be in awe while shopping and strolling through the market.

More Than Shopping

Bridgeway Farmers Market offers more than just fresh produce. It’s a community hub where you can find skincare products, candles, artisanal cheeses, fresh seafood, group classes, great food, social connections, beautiful local art, and with Greenville, Simpsonville, and Mauldin farmers coming out in droves, there’s an endless amount of fresh local produce options to choose from.
