Winnsboro Farmers Market has been a staple every Saturday from April through October since 2008. Not only Does Oaklea Mansion buy their farm fresh produce from them, but people come from all over the region to buy from the many vendors available.
Since the parking improvements and new accessibility improvements, the market has begun to grow and thrive. So much so that they are now in the running for the 15th annual America's Farmers Market Celebration (AFMC); this is where the best Farmer's market in the nation is designated. The crown jewel of this contest is the "Peoples Choice" award. Winnsboro is now well into the competition and is ranked the following:
18th in the Nation
3rd in the Southwest region
3rd in the State
This is a wonderful achievement in itself for Winnsboro. This means people recognize our tiny town as a place to find handmade and hand-grown goods! People come from all over the United States to shop in our little market, and we are being recognized as a place to be. This means people spend money while they are here and boost our economy!
