Food purchased at a local Farmers Market comes with outstanding freshness, quality, flavor, and variety. You know exactly where your food comes from and how it was grown. Additionally, you support a sustainable regional food system that helps small family farms stay in business, protects land from development, and provides all of us with fresh, local food.
The growers and artisans that sell at the market are remarkable folks. Stop in today and visit with us here at the Union County Farmers Market and savor all that is home grown and handmade! We also provide a list of the participating growers & artisans with their contact information – just in case you can’t wait till market day to get your bushel of corn or a special handcrafted gift.

Mercier Orchards is a family owned and operated apple orchard now in it's 4th generation. Started back in 1943 by Bill & Adele Mercier, Mercier Orchards is now celebrating over 70 years of fruitful harvest! The combination of our U-PICK events, Bakery & Deli, Market Store, and now our Farm Winery makes us a great choice for a day trip by yourself or with the family! Spend the day experiencing what makes us unique! We're constantly improving our products and our store to give you the best experience that we can possibly offer. Mercier Orchards is currently open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm everyday!
Hardpressed Beverages are available year round at Mercier Orchards. Few wineries can claim that they grow, press, ferment, and bottle their own product. Here at our Cidery, we craft premium product that we can proudly label as Georgia Grown. Come in, enjoy a round of tasting, and you'll be "hard pressed" not to buy a bottle or two. Don't forget to pick up some for your friends and family!
Here at the farm, we have many family oriented events that occur thoughout the year. So be sure to visit often and check out our updates to see what are coming up next. Also, some of the same products that we sell in our market are also available online. If you can't get to us, then we'll ship to you. We also do seasonal gifts for different holidays, so be sure to check our for gifts.
