Dublin's Farmer's Market

Throughout the most recent Laurens County and cities comprehensive plan are references to the “Farmers' Market on Madison,” as a place to purchase locally produced goods, a tourism destination and a destination for a bike path. Located in downtown Dublin, The Market on Madison, is a premier open-air venue. Constructed by the City of Dublin in 2004 using SPLOST and USDA grant funding, the Market operates every Saturday April-November, 7:30 am-12:30 pm. It offers a vast array of local and organic produce, as well as artisan foods, farm-raised eggs, and raw honey as well as a variety of hand-made crafts and original art. Over the last two seasons, the Dublin Farmers' Market has experienced much growth, counting over 30 vendors each week and several hundred patrons during peak produce season. Future plans for the Market include EBT/SNAP Card acceptance and promotion as a regional tourism destination. In addition to the farmers' market, the Market on Madison is host to a variety of public and private events. The Market's amphitheater is home to the First Friday Concerts March thru October, presented by Dublin's Main Street program. The facility and grounds are available as a rental space and are often used for weddings, parties, and photo shoots. The Market is located at 314 W. Madison St., and is managed by Main Street Dublin and Downtown Development Authority. 478-272-2560
