The TD Saturday Market is first and foremost a local farmers market. We showcase locally grown, raised, sourced and produced products. Businesses with value-added products that use local ingredients will be given priority. The TD Saturday Market considers local sourcing to be the farm-direct purchasing of locally grown or raised, raw agricultural products, which does not include local distributors. We will not accept the following items at our market:

  • Food items meant for onsite consumption
  • Food items manufactured in a home kitchen
  • Food items not grown and/or processed by the vendor (unless there is a need for the product at the market. A resell letter is required.)
  • Beverages and energy drinks
  • Meat and dairy products treated with growth hormones such as rBGH
  • Genetically modified crops
  • Businesses that operate under a franchise agreement
  • Non-food items not grown and processed by the producer (e.g., flowers, herb tinctures, beeswax candles)
  • Jewelry or clothing items

Further information can be found in our Vendor Rules and Regulations in Step 2.

Vendor Categories

Farmer/Producer/Grower:

Farmers produce locally grown vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, herbs, flowers or nursery crops from seed or plants. Beekeepers, egg farmers, poultry and livestock producers are considered farmers.

Crafter:

Crafters produce original, unique, high quality, safe, garden/farm/environmentally-related items which bring some added value to the TD Saturday Market. All products must be the actual work of the crafter and produced within 100 miles of Greenville, SC. No commercial items, no imported items, no manufactured items and no second hand items shall be resold by crafters.

Processor and Commercial Vendors:

Processors are vendors that use locally grown produce to make their products (such as jellies, jams, salsas, ciders, smoked meats, honey, etc.) This vendor does not operate a commercial business. Commercial vendors use locally grown ingredients in their products. All products must be high quality, safe and an enhancement to the TD Saturday Market. Bakeries fall into this category; however, the TD Saturday Market can only support a limited amount of bakeries to avoid saturation of this type of product.

The TD Saturday Market does not accept any vendors that plan on preparing food or serving for consumption on-site or vendors operating under the Cottage Law.
