The Briggs Chaney–Greencastle Farmers’ Market unites its voluminous spread of locally sourced products—including produce, meats, and coffees—with area artisans, live tunes, and wine tastings that celebrate neighborhood vendors. Produce prowlers and amateur jugglers can scan peaches plucked from local orchards ($6), as well as fresh-picked gala and honey-crisp apples ($7/bag) and farm-fresh crates of tomatoes and zucchini ($10 each). Vacant meat freezers receive new tenants when stocked with succulent pork sausage ($6/pound), boneless pork chops ($5.50/pound), and tender top-round roasts ($7/pound) culled from free-range farms. Shoppers can also skip home with armfuls of fresh-baked breads, organic lemonades, and herbal iced teas, or bags of locally roasted Brazilian and Ethiopian coffees ($7+) from the bean barons at Nagadi, which help combat nightmares of spelunking down a giant, empty mug.

Alternatively, Briggs’ Wine and Food Tasting Festival complements 24–30 of the state’s most celebrated vinos with an appetizing array of Southern and international comestibles, accompanied by local artwork, and handmade jewelry available for purchase. Seize a complimentary tasting glass or spare flowerpot when sniffing, swirling, and dampening palates with wines from such vendors as St. Michael’s Winery, Cygnus Wine Cellars, and Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard. Progenitors can eschew midday sitters by dropping off their little ones at Briggs’ kids’ tent, and each guest receives the chance to win a wine tour for eight, as well as a gift bag brimming with swag produced by the area’s most notable swagists.

Milk Lady Markets

Gigi Goin is the driving force behind the network of fresh produce markets and food festivals that live under the Milk Lady Markets umbrella. Born in Trinidad, Gigi grew up around an abundance of produce markets, farms, and home gardens. It instilled in her a lifelong appreciation for farmers and the need for consumers to be closely connected to food producers. And in 2010, her love of fresh, healthy food—Gigi was a vegan for 12 years and is now a pescetarian—spurred her to create Milk Lady Markets, which comprises multiple producer-only farmers' markets throughout Montgomery County. The organization also oversees festivals throughout the year, including the annual Strawberry Festival in late spring.

Customer Reviews

It was a cold and blustery day when we went to the Briggs Chaney-Greencastle Farmers Market, but there was still live entertainment, which was nice. The puppet lady was great with my daughter. I was surprised that she was not selling the puppets, but simply there to educate and entertain. Even though there were only two produce sellers, we found everything we had hoped to buy. So the market was smaller than I expected, but the entertainment perks were great and the folks were very friendly.
