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 they've been doing it since the 1960s. The lunch and dinner specials don't come with one side; they come with THREE. You also get a basket of cornbread and rolls. Enjoy belly-filling mashed potatoes and gravy, and southern favorites like country fried steak, fried okra, collard greens and seasonal produce. This is a great spot for that apple or pumpkin pie you might be craving. The homemade desserts are a long-standing favorite.
