The Farmers Market is the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Lee County, located off the beaten path in an industrial area that you might drive right by. When the temperatures drop and you want a big plate of comforting, seasonal food, this is the spot. The no frills, homey eatery serves the big portions and great quality that a Southern Grandma would, and has been doing so since the 1960's. The lunch and dinner specials don't come with one side; they come with THREE. You also get a basket of corn bread and rolls. Enjoy belly filling mashed potatoes and gravy, and southern favorites like country fried steak, fried okra and collard greens. This is a great spot for that apple or pumpkin pie you might be craving. The homemade desserts are a long standing favorite.

- Best for Lunch Because: This 65 year old family run restaurant serves home cooked meals in heaping portions, with a side of Southern hospitality.
- Recommended as Best Value Because: The portions at Farmers Market are huge, the entrees come with three sides and the service is welcoming in this off the beaten path restaurant.
