The Farmers Market will be returning April 7th, 2012, taking place each Saturday from 9:00am to 12:30pm in the Sea Island Bank’s parking lot (2 E. Main St). We’ll have fresh veggies, bakery items, crafts, and other goods available. Also, we will be on the GSU campus on April 3rd, 17th, and May 1st behind the Williams Center.
Our crops are just bursting and ready to be harvested and placed in your baskets.

Want to see what you can do with our products? The Farmers Market has The Garden Table, which will feature local chefs preparing local produce. There is also a Mainstreet Farmers Market Raffle Basket, which is stuffed full of goodies such as home grown produce and crafts, varying each week. Tickets are sold at a reasonable price, and towards the end of each market day a drawing will occur to determine the winner.
We always love volunteers! With anything from marketing the Farmers Market, or working on Market days, if you’d like to learn more about helping the Farmers Market, please visit the Contact Us page.
