Foothills Heritage Market
EVERY SATURDAY 9AM–1PM
(APRIL THRU October)
Our Foothills Heritage Market focuses on providing fresh local produce, including fruits, honey, eggs, and meats that are all grown by the neighbors we know. Everything you will find at our market is grown within fifty miles or hand-made by one of our Oconee artisans. You will also find great gift items such as crocheted items, hand-made dog accessories and treats, hand-made soaps and spa items, and beautifully crafted wooden bowls, cutting boards, and furniture.
Market space is provided at no charge to Oconee farmers, artists, and craftsmen. You must provide your own table and any decorations, banners, and marketing materials. We ask that you set up prior to 8 a.m. on Saturdays. We also ask that you not leave—even if you sell out—until the market is closed, except in the case of an emergency. We want people to get to know you and your services!
Foothills Heritage Market Mission
The mission of the Foothills Heritage Market is to offer fresh, local produce to the citizens of our county, a friendly place to get-together, share and learn. Our goal is to build a meeting space /event facility that is open throughout the year. The market center will include a commercial kitchen that will allow farmers to make specialty food items that can be sold—not only at the market but at stores and shops in surrounding tourist areas. The kitchen will also allow groups who are meeting at the center to provide cost-effective meals for their event. The market already supports educational programs to help our vendors grow their business and programs that assist seniors with access to healthy local food.
