The Farmers’ Market at Poplar Grove provides an opportunity for local growers and producers to sell their goods directly to consumers. The market strives to promote local farmers & the use of local products, provide the local community with an opportunity to get to know their farmer, their baker, their artisan, maker, and educate the public on the history of agriculture at Poplar Grove.

One of the special qualities of a Farmers’ Market is the interaction with the farmers growing and producing fresh produce, landscaping & bedding plants, or meeting herbalists growing herbs and mixing scented salves and oils, bakers creating homemade cookies and desserts, and artisans making handmade soaps, cutting boards, jewelry, and accessories for home, hearth and garden.
Within the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor, Poplar Grove is first and foremost a museum complex dedicated to education, preservation and conservation. We will create opportunities to:
1) reflect upon the historical practices of a self-sustaining farm through the history enslavement, tenant farming, legislation, technology, and the heritage arts
2) promote the values and traditions of local communities and cultural landscapes as it reflects past, present and future human activity
3) initiate a meaningful dialogue that builds upon the values of respect, empathy, cultural diversity, multiple perspectives, and democratic principles
4) share the significance and spirit of place as a shared resource by preserving the natural habitat and architectural harmony indigenous to the lower Cape Fear region
The museum complex can be explored during market hours by purchasing tickets and memberships. Adjacent, and operated independently from Poplar Grove, is the Abbey Nature Preserve, with trails open and free to the public year-round.
Join us every Wednesday from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM between April 14, 2021 and September 29, 2021.
