UPTOWN MARTINSVILLE FARMERS' MARKET

Thank you to Martinsville Uptown's platinum sponsors, BTW21, The Lester Group, & ValleyStar Credit Union for not only supporting the farmers' market, but all of Uptown's events!
We also thank Martinsville Uptown's 2022 market sponsors for supporting the Uptown Martinsville Farmers' Market including: New College Institute, SOVAH Health of Martinsville and Southern Virginia Properties, Uptown Music Fest and the Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health & Wellness (EBT Sponsor)!
The Uptown Martinsville Farmers' Market now has a waiting list for new vendors.
This year's Farmers' Market is offering a large variety of local goods. As always, there is a vast variety of local fruits and vegetables for sale. We also have delicious baked goods, farm eggs, assortment of jams & jellies, salsas, local honey, beautiful flowers & plants, soaps, crafts, sweets and much more. Many of our vendors have competitive prices with the grocery store. And in many cases, the Market's produce is healthier and fresher than what you will find elsewhere. The Market is accepting EBT / SNAP cards and is currently offering an EBT match program. Just see our manager to receive tokens to exchange out with the vendors.

Through this grant program, local teachers can apply for funds to support projects within the classroom. In the past, PIE grants have supported local education initiatives such as Henry County Civics in Action, Climbing to Success, A “Clear-view” of How Nutrition and Exercise Can Help Your Child, How Does Your Garden Grow, Reading for Life, Preparing Technology Enhanced Items, and Writing Through Photography.
12 CHEAPEST SMALL TOWNS IN AMERICA
Affordable small towns might not be for everyone, but their charms put them among the best places to live for plenty of folks.
Small-town living has plenty of perks: light traffic, a strong sense of community and a slower pace of life. Perhaps best of all, there's the cost of living, which typically is cheaper in small towns than in expensive big cities.
To get a better sense of what inexpensive small-town living really has to offer, we compiled a list of the 12 cheapest small towns in America, with small towns defined as places with populations of 10,000 to 50,000 people. We based our rankings on the Council for Community and Economic Research's (C2ER) calculations of living expenses in 267 urban areas. C2ER's expansive study tracks thousands of prices under the categories of housing, utilities, healthcare, groceries, transportation, and miscellaneous goods and services (such as an appointment with a physician or a ticket to the cinema).
It goes without saying that you should weigh the pros and cons before you pack up and relocate to one of the 12 cheapest small towns in America. While a low cost of living is attractive, it can be offset by issues such as scarce jobs, small paychecks or a lack of things to do in the area. Plan an extended visit to ensure the small town fits your lifestyle. And if you prefer larger locales, consider our list of the cheapest U.S. cities to live in.
C2ER's Cost of Living Index data is based on average prices of goods and services collected for the first three quarters of 2021, with index values based on the new weights for 2022. Population figures, median household incomes, median home values, poverty rates and other demographic data are from the U.S. Census Bureau. Unemployment rates, courtesy of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, are as of April 27 for the month of March 2022, and are neither smoothed nor seasonally adjusted.
