‘From the Earth’ Northwest Farmer's Market is a free event open to everyone looking for fresh seasonal local products, specialty foods, body care products, medicinal care products, home care, dog care products, and an array of one of a kind crafts. All crafters are required to produce products of or from the earth.
Our primary focus is promoting a healthy lifestyle and creating awareness regarding the importance of eating plant foods that are grown in our local area. We also look to help local businesses thrive in a setting that helps support startups. A safe fun community setting is also important to our market and we continue to provide free music, special event days, easy access for handicap customers, and a safe play area for the kids.
The market brings local, organic produce, specialty foods, and locally made home items, pet items, body care items, and holistic items along with a small array of quality, locally made crafts. The market functions like an outdoor general store. We invite folks to come and gather, meet up for coffee, share conversations, shop for quality products and food, and enjoy their friends and neighbors.
We enjoy a great relationship with the folks at the Greensboro Performing Arts. They have provided use of their property which allows for ample customer parking, vendor parking, and future expansion. Plus having the Jumping Bean Coffee Shop as a partner and supporter has been beneficial for both parties. Summerfield has been very welcoming and supportive of the farmer’s market and we are really happy to be involved in providing a real asset for their town.
So who are some of our merchants and vendors? Husband and wife teams, small families, special need folks, and regular people that live in your area. Please come out and support our market and these local businesses. Most of us do this because we enjoy making friends with new people, making something meaningful to help someone life be a little easier, and some to make ends meet. Thank you Summerfield for your support, we look forward to creating wonderful moments with the community.
The farmer’s market provides excellent value with produce and specialty foods because our farmers and food vendors are bringing food directly to the market, without the middleman, distribution costs, advertising costs, retail store costs, or employee costs. Those additional costs add up to higher food costs at the grocery stores. There’s also the ‘freshness factor’ where farmer’s markets have an advantage over grocery stores. Most farmers are picking their produce a day or two prior to the market. And most specialty food vendors are preparing their pies, breads, coffees, or other goods just days prior to the market day. There’s no comparison to the quality and freshness of the products you get from a farmer’s market, hence the marketing trend among big box grocers mimicking the “farmer’s market” theme.

Farmer's Markets are a great place to sample great food. Learn about how the food is made, how to use it in your recipes, and where is comes from in the area.
Unique products, and items that you can't get in big box stores. Many crafters offer custom made items too.
The crafters are onsite to teach how they made a product, specialty food item, or body care product. In many cases, custom items can be made just for you.
Get your food fresh. Fresh from the coast, fresh from the gardens, fresh from the fields, and fresh from the ovens.
We want you to come smell our products so you get exactly what you want.
Get your food direct, where fewer hands touch your food, fewer costs go into getting it to you, and more money goes towards the growers to help keep them in business.
We are here to serve you. You get to know us because we are out here weekly. Knowing the people who make your foods, grow your foods, and produce your goods is the way it used to be. Simple, honest, trusting.
Farmer's Markets can offer foods, plants, and goods that are not mandated to include harsh chemical byproducts. Enjoy safer and cleaner options for your family.

Most of the goods and foods you get at the market are made to order or made for that week.
When you buy local you keep the money here in the area. Economically it helps you, your neighbors, and the local economy.
You will always be warmly greeted here at the market. We love our community and want love to see our neighbors and friends each week. Enjoy the music, the food trucks, the grounds, and the people.
