My favorite things at the Matthews Community Farmers Market? I LOVE the fresh lettuces, bok choy and other greens, as well as the juicy, sweet tomatoes! My husband loves the “hot pepper stand” called “As Hot as it Gets” – he’ll buy anything that causes him to erupt in a sweat! I love to buy a cup of coffee at the Community House, and look through the other dry goods sold at the store. I also LOVE to visit Renfrow Hardware and General Merchandise next door, one of the partners of the farmers market. This is a hardware store like NO OTHER – you must check it out!
