Swamp Rabbit walk to Saturday Farmer's Markets

This weekend while walking the Swamp Rabbit in Travelers Rest SC We ran across the Travelers Rest Farmer's Market in the field behind Sunrift Adventures in TR (Travelers Rest's local name). The Farmer's Market Field looks like a football stadium and is full of market tents offering local produce and crafts. There is even a bouncy house for the kids. I was impressed with the amount of local vendors. The market is open from May through September from 9am till noon, rain or shine. The official address is 1 Center Street, Travelers Rest, SC 29690. There was live music playing as well.

Many people know about the Downtown Greenville, SC Saturday Market. The Greenville Downtown Market has grown in recent years to encompass several blocks of Main Street between Court and Washington streets. The TR Farmer's Market is not as well known, but worth a visit.

Overall the walk up the Swamp Rabbit Trail through the TR gave my daughter much to look at and offered facilities and food/water in a timely and well labeled fashion.  It was a wonderful surprise since I was simply killing time waiting for Lee and Galen to paddle the Saluda River. Travelers Rest is a happening place these days, check it out sometime soon.
