“The Market Pavilion is an awesome venue,” says City of Landrum Public Relations and Marketing Director Tricia Taber. “When bands were scheduled to play at the previous location at the Landrum Depot, several shows had to be canceled due to weather. Now the community can enjoy music rain or shine.” 

Landrum’s Farmer’s Market started in 2000 with a local farmer selling produce out of his pick-up truck in the train depot parking lot. As the market grew local farmers Joe Cunningham and Joyce Davis made it a more formal organization and moved it to the parking area along Trade Street. In 2019, Cunningham and others worked with the city to create a more permanent space for the market.

On May 14, 2022, the city opened the new Landrum Farmers Market Pavilion with more than 15,000 square feet under cover making it a multi-use facility. That year saw an average of 50 vendors a week drawing people to shop for fresh local produce, eggs, meats, baked goods, and craft vendors. The “Music on the Market” concert series started later that summer. 

“Our area residents and visitors alike are a vital part of this city and what better way to give back than to offer special, free, musical entertainment,” says Taber.

The market is located at 221 West Rutherford Street. The concerts are from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Food trucks will offer snacks and beverages. Alcohol is allowed but glass containers are not. People are encouraged to bring folding chairs. For more information, visit
