Greensboro Downtown Farm Market
Farm-fresh produce, grown with sustainable and organic methods, is the star of the show at Greensboro Downtown Farm Market, a community-supported agricultural venture that's open year-round, six days a week. Within this appropriately verdant storefront on Greene Street, a cornucopia of healthy, seasonal fruits and veggies fills baskets, shelves, and shoes left out overnight. Refrigerated cases boast proteins, such as organic chicken, grass-fed beef and buffalo, and free-range eggs, that await dressing from locally made sauces.
