Start your Saturdays at University City Farmers Market

May 7, 2021 | Events, Uncategorized

University City Farmers Market is off to a great start.

Online publication Charlotte Five recently declared our market one of its “Five Things To Do” on Saturdays, and with good reason.

The lakeside market at the Shoppes at University Place offers fresh regional produce, live entertainment and cooking demonstrations, children’s programs, local crafts and, new this spring, an outdoor cafe featuring Manolo’s Latin Bakery and Detour Coffeebar.

  • The market is open 9 am-1 pm Saturdays through next fall at 8929 JM Keynes Drive, a short walk from the JW Clay LYNX light-rail station. Free parking is nearby and plentiful. MAP
  • The lakeside market is a short walk from the JW Clay Blvd LYNX Station

    Visit the market website for details on vendors, safety measures and more.

  • Follow the market on Facebook and Instagram @univcitymkt for the latest news on vendors, products and special events.
  • Sign up for weekly boxes of fresh produce from area farms, assembled by the Farm at Dover Vineyards CSA.
