GVL Today – Fresh Fridays On The Grand Lawn
Starting this Friday, Hartness will host a monthly market featuring local farmers, specialty artisans, family fun and live entertainment from 6 – 8 p.m. through October 19 (check the website for specific dates).
To kick off the season, dance to music by local musician Tim White + be sure to wear comfy clothes if you want to get bendy with a yoga class at 6:30 p.m. (don’t forget to bring your mat). If that’s not your thing – or the kids need to burn off some energy – play some rounds of cornhole or walk on the typically private Hartness nature trails…
Now, let’s talk about the food:
🍦 We already know it’s going to be hot outside, so King of Pops will be there with refreshing pops like Thai Iced Tea or Chocolate Sea Salt (our fave).
🍯 Milk and Honey Market will have handmade boutique items sourced from Fair Trade brands, like statement earrings and woven clutches.
🍋 If you have a sweet tooth, the strawberry or lemon desserts of Marvelous Pies look amazing.
🍓If you’re more of a DIY pie-maker, pick up some fresh strawberries from Sandy Flat Berry Patch to take home.
Basically, there’s nothing better than a picnic on a warm night with beautiful mountain views. We recommend grabbing a plate from Henry’s Hog Hauler food truck + picking up a bottle from Overmountain Vineyards (or sipping an iced coffee from Exchange Co.). Find a spot to sit + enjoy the music and get ready for the weekend.
Pro tip: The first 50 guests will receive a Hartness tote bag (perfect for carrying all the goodies you’ll be buying).
Thales Academy, a college preparatory network of K-12 independent schools based in North Carolina, announced on April 27 it will open within the Hartness community in Greenville in 2023.
Hartness is beguiling, not just because of the architecture of the homes, not just because of the sweeping green spaces, but because of a total package unlike anything else in the Upstate.
Rising stars such as Greenville, S.C., Des Moines, Iowa, and Provo, Utah, built out vibrant economies even before the pandemic; now, they are drawing new workers and businesses.
