Since the opening of the South Hill Farmers Market in 2005, vendors have found this to be a very profitable and enjoyable way of selling their goods. Along with local growers, homemade crafters and bakers are welcome. The Market Square is also available for community fundraisers and special events.
There is a $5 charge for each 10' X 10' vendor space each day for the allotted hours of the Market, and spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Season passes are also available. Mondays through Thursdays are the sign up days for vendor spaces with a cutoff time of 10:00 a.m. on Thursday. Vendors are responsible for providing tables, equipment, shelter and displays for their merchandise and are responsible for the collection and removal of all refuse generated from sales at their space. Tent rentals are available for $5.00 on a first come, first serve basis.
Visit the South Hill Farmers Market every Saturday, rain or shine, beginning the last Saturday in May through the last Saturday in October. Operating hours are 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The Market is held in the South Hill Market Square public parking lot at the intersection of Mecklenburg Avenue and Danville Street in the heart of downtown South Hill.
The Town of South Hill thanks all the vendors whose wonderful products make our Farmers Market successful. We have received many excellent comments regarding the Market. We take pride in the fact that all items sold at the Market are grown, baked or crafted by local vendors, guaranteeing the freshness of the products and allowing customers the opportunity to talk to the actual producers. Come and be a part of this exciting opportunity. The location is ideal, the cost is minimal, and the potential is enormous! Please contact Anna Cratch at 434/447-3191 to reserve a vendor space.
