One of the things I’ve always loved about traveling and visiting new places is diving into the local culture and regional appeal. Farmers Markets offer a chance to meet locals who are literally rooted in the community and try out some unique offerings and seasonal produce. As we enter the heart of summer, the variety the markets offer is amazing.
The Piedmont region has lots of local flavor to explore and venues from permanent structures to grassy knolls!
Check out just a few of the offerings from the area, then give me, Ellen Dudley, a call at 336.575.7249 and let’s talk about using regional elements like these to position your home in a great light in buyers minds or to help you find a place to live close to your favorite market.
I’m certain once you meet some of the fantastic folks at these markets and see the variety of goods they have to offer that you’ll agree: this region has an amazing culture and flavors for just about anyone. As your Realtor partner, I can help you find the perfect property to live near these wonderful local hubs of culture and community.

In case you lost count, that’s ten local farmers markets in the region! And that doesn’t include the shops that specialize in sourcing from local farmers year-round or the local strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, peach, apple, grape, corn, and other produce you can pick yourself direct from the farms. The Piedmont Triad region is truly bountiful in how it values locally grown and manufactured goods.
It takes a solid real estate partner and Realtor to understand the depth of culture and wonderful community that a region can provide. Do you value locally grown produce and goods?
