It's always nice to walk around a farmer's market. This one is state supported which means it's bigger than other markets. It includes multiple covered shopping areas, a restaurant, and an imports market.

Whether you are shopping or just sight-seeing, the farmers market is a great place to stop. We shop there regularly and take all of our out of town visitors there. Don't miss the seafood market for lunch! One order goes a LONG way!

If I lived in Raleigh, I would have to be a frequent visitor. They had all the summer produce you want to buy, beautiful plants and flowers. I had been looking for a red crape Myrtle. Well I found one and it drove home from North Carolina with me today. This farmers market made me want to visit Georgia's Farmers... More

We usually buy all our fruits & vegetables from the farmer market & decided to visit this one. It had a good variety of everything for those seeking freshness & tasty food. I recommend trying their honey, arugula & the apples. Visited this place 4 times!

I enjoy the wide variety of vegetables and fruit that are available at the State Farmers Market, but am frequently disappointed in the quality of some of the vegetables and fruit being sold. Today I visited the market particularly looking for squash. Although many vendors had squash, most appeared bruised, old, or otherwise marred. While the prices seem to be... More

I know that I'm biased but I feel that our state farmers market here in Raleigh, is one of the best. Whether you go in the Spring to sample the strawberries, summer to sample the peaches and melons, fall for apples and pecans or winter for Christmas trees and cole crops, it is one of our favorite family outings. Along... More

Very clean and well organized farmers market. The vendors are under cover and have lot's of quality produce and plants at great prices. If we lived in Raleigh I would be a regular at this place. Vendors are friendly and serve up fresh samples of their goods

This is the best farmers market I have even seen. We visited on our way to the Outer Banks last fall. We walked in through the back of the shed between 2 vendors and my mouth literally fell open at the variety and colors of the different apples and eggplants that were immediately visible. Apple varieties I had never heard... More

This has got to be the best farmers market I have ever visited. The vegetable selection appeared to be mostly fresh and local. Of course out of season produce had been shipped in but it was to be expected. On the other hand, many farms were represented and brought their own products. I found some nice unusual plants for my... More
