🥬 Romaine calm about these renovations
A look at what’s to come. | Renderings by DP3 Architects
Hello, gourd-geous. Major changes are coming to the Greenville State Farmers Market, located at 1354 Rutherford Rd.

DP3 Architects — a local firm — is working with the South Carolina Department of Agriculture on a 17,000-sqft “comprehensive renovation” project.

The design was inspired by elements of the building’s original look when it opened in 1949 + aims to create a “more efficient layout.” Plus, it will feature new elements including:
  • A modern canopy entrance
  • Glass panel garage doors
  • Concrete benches for exterior seating
  • New lighting + ceiling fans
  • Transformed bathrooms
  • New plant stands for vendors
We won’t have to wait long to see the results because the project is expected to wrap up in November.

A new downtown Sunday brunch + unique pub food, paired with the perfect sports-watching atmosphere — that (along with 7+ beers) is what’s on tap at The Bellwether Public House. Here’s how you can Try This.

What we tried:

City Editor Danielle here. I recently met up with fellow Liverpool F.C. fans through Football Fanatix of Greenville to catch a game just steps away from Fluor Field. With two bars, indoor + outdoor seating (with heaters for cooler days), turf filled with yard games, and 24 televisions, this is the perfect place to catch a game.
