Description   EN   

I enjoy a cache that brings me to an interesting place - this is one of those. The Matthews Community Farmers Market offers tons of terrific local produce, plants, meat, cheese, baked goods, crafts, and just about anything else you can think of. Cooking demonstrations by local chefs are also common, as well as entertainment from local musicians. Come for the cache while the market is open and you'll be back!

 

At the posted coordinates you will find a sign that mentions the year that the Matthews Farmers Market was established. To log this cache, enter that year in the password section of your log. The Market is only open on Saturdays from 8am - noon, but the sign is accessible any time.

This was on my walking route after the GC flash mob event. Got to see someone remove a couple boxes of produce, but it was otherwise already emptied out here, except at the store. Moved on to the next one to the north and stopped for a couple pictures on the way out.



### **Thanks, Mrs. HB31, for setting this up!** ###

I was in the area today finding several caches and I figured this would be an easy grab...it was! Unfortunately the market wasn't open today, but I know I'll be back to check out what they have to offer. Thanks for letting me know about this place!

Was down from Maryland with sfcchaz for a (mostly) alt-caching run thru Charlotte.  This was day two, after a surprisingly well attended 0630 (AKA o'dark thirty) event at Krispy Kreme (maybe that explains it).

Was glad to log the nearby GS puzzle after reading the warning on the cache page and deciding to look around.

We had a great time and definitely plan to make a return trip some time.

Unfortunately, the market was not open when we visited.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

DudleyGrunt and I came down to North Carolina to seek some OCNA caches. They are many, many OCNA caches in the Charlotte area and we wanted to seek them during the current contest going on the OCNA site.

Today I found 45 OCNA cahes, 5 Groundspeak caches, 1 GPSgames.org cache , 1 Opencaching.com cache and several possible Terracaching.com locationless caches.

Thanks for showing us this one. TFTC
