Farmer's Market

Pinehurst has a farm market and fresh local produce!

Homegrown on the Pinehurst Village Green
This is a convenient option right in the middle of the Village of Pinehurst, located in the sand parking lot across from the Old Theater Building.
Wednesdays and Saturdays(9 am – 1 pm), from late April 25 to late September

Farm to Table
This is great service!!  You can sign up for boxes of fresh local produce and other local goods.  IT’S ALL LOCAL.  The boxes reasonably priced are delivered to pickup locations weekly or bi-weekly depending on your needs.  Pickup locations are everywhere around Moore County.  Check out their website.

Betty’s Garden
If you don’t operate on any particular schedule, but still want to buy fresh produce every now and then, Betty Foster operates a great market on her own and a lot of locals have been buying fresh produce from Betty and her family for years.  She usually opens a little earlier in the year and closes a little later in the year that the other farmers markets.  Her store is open weekdays.  405 W. Pennsylvania Avenue, Southern Pines, NC.  The phone number is 695-0233.
Keep in mind also that many of the leading restaurants in the area have made a major commitment to buy produce and even cheeses and meats from local farmers and producers.  They include:  Ashtens's in Southern Pines, Rhett's in Southern Pines, Elliot's in Pinehurst, Rue 32 in Southern Pines.

Pinehurst and Hydrangea's

Pinehurst knows how to grow hydrangea's.  This is what I get to see on my morning walks in the village.  What a lovely way to start my day!
