Big changes at the Greer Farmer’s Market
More than produce is growing at the Greer Farmer’s Market. The market has relocated to 300 Randall St. with more vendors and better parking, according to Cristy Ray, chairman of the Greer Farmer’s Market. Some of the new vendors:

Upstate Greens — This Greenville urban farm grows microgreens in an upcycled shipping container. The owners belong to the Homegrown by Heroes coalition for military veterans.
Miss Bee Haven Honey Bones — Another urban farmer in Greenville, Debra Varvaro began beekeeping and making dog treats as a hobby. She now has nine hives off Pelham Road.
Silverlake Farms — These Duncan-based farmers value animal ethics and specialize in Berkshire pork. Co-owner Katie Huxster described the pig’s history as a delicacy for English kings. “We’re no royal family, but we agree, the meat is tender, juicy and delicious,” she said.
Satterfield Farms — This Taylors farm features grass-fed beef and pork.
