Homegrown by Heroes is a specialty vendor sanctioned by the military for former vets. Stop by Jason McCabe's stand next Thursday and ask the former Marine about his microgreens, herbs and leafy greens – grown in a container much like those at the Greer Inland Port.

Children of vendors found it warmer and less windy under tables. It was also a good place to hide from their parents.

Opening day at the Greer Farmer's Market was a time for shopping inside – at the grand opening of Foodies Farm Shop – and out. Christy Ray is the owner of the store and organizer for the market.

The market lended many of its vendors to tell stories of their arts, crafts, food and plants. Some interesting vignettes are provided below with the photos.

Fresh produce was absent due it being in the middle of the growing season.

The market, at 300 Randall Street, is held every Thursday 4-7 p.m.
