NC Pickle Festival

The North Carolina Pickle Festival was first held on September 12, 1987 when the entire event was held in a three block section of Center Street in downtown Mount Olive.
Today, the event has spread to encompass nearly all of Mount Olive’s downtown business area, grown to thousands of attendees.
The festival features live entertainment, an antique car show, carnival rides, petting zoo, games, food, vendors, vintage farm equipment display – and of course, lots of pickles to eat.

Poplar Grove Fabulous Farmer’s Market

Farmers' MarketMushpa + Mensa is super excited to be back at Poplar Grove. One of our all time favorite gigs! Come see us and all the other amazing vendors at an awesome place. We will be facing painting as well, which not to brag we are pretty fantastical at. :] Food trucks, music, fun!

The Farmers’ Market at Poplar Grove was established to provide a retail outlet for local growers and producers to sell their goods directly to consumers. The market strives to promote local farmers & the use of local products, educate consumers on conservation practices, and provide the local community an opportunity to get to know their farmer, their baker, their artisan maker!

One of the special qualities of a Farmers’ Market is the interaction with the farmers growing and producing fresh produce, landscaping & bedding plants, or meeting herbalists growing herbs and mixing scented salves and oils, bakers creating homemade cookies and desserts, and artisans making handmade soaps, cutting boards, jewelry, and accessories for home, hearth and garden.

Within the Gullah Geechee Corridor, the grounds and outbuildings of Poplar Grove are open and free to the public on market day. Located on Highway 17 and easily accessible from the I-140 Bypass, there is plenty of free parking, picnic tables, and a playground.  Visit The Stables, Basket Gallery, Gift Shop, and exhibits with information on blacksmithing, peanuts, weaving and slavery.  Adjacent, and operated independently from Poplar Grove, is the Abbey Nature Preserve, with trails open and free to the public year-round.
