Grow, Eat, Shop, Inspired to Produce, LOCAL
Big Changes are coming to our Corner and we are excited to announce our plans for now and next including our Friendly plans for our ‘old space’, and the NEW face of Friendly Market Produce.
Starting 'Now’, Join us on the Porch this Friday, July 19th and shop for your favorite Friendly Market Produce items. Fresh Produce will include NC LOCAL peppers, cantaloupe, watermelons, corn, tomatoes, squash, zucchini, cucumbers as well as South Carolina Peaches. As we transition into our NEW plan for Friendly Market Produce 2020, we’d love to introduce you to Sarah Swain!
Sarah Swain joined our Friendly Market team in the Summer of 2016. She has quickly become a a bright leader in our kitchen as well as part of our exceptional front end staff. She is a native to Morehead City, NC and graduate from West Carteret High School. Sarah will will be a senior this year at The University of Mount Olive where she will receive her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education. Her leadership positions and roles are impressive as well as her dedication to community service. In addition to Sarah’s long list of achievements, she was North Carolina’s FFA State Vice President from June 2017-June 2018.
What’s coming NEXT for The Friendly Market Produce in 2020? The cat is finally out of the bag- our ‘Old Space’ is in the process of being remodeled and converted into our NEW Friendly Market Produce store. This comes as a natural fit for our Corner and will allow our kitchen to extend the harvest year round. This ‘NEW space’ will anchor Produce giving it a bigger presence of the very best North Carolina has to offer. There will be two entrances to the NEW space including one through our Friendly Market Foods storefront (too COOL right!?) Expect 2020 to be filled with NC LOCAL Produce, Custom Baskets, Flowers, Meats, Cheeses and so much more!
