Check out the Yanceyville  Farmers Market 

This is the BEST place in town to buy local! All the farmers here are from within 100 miles of Greensboro. You can shake your farmers hand, get high quality food grown chemical free that was probably picked yesterday not 3 weeks ago like you would find at the grocery store.
