Originally scheduled to close October 1, the 2011 Suwanee Farmers Market has been extended two weeks. The market will now be open from 8 a.m.-noon Saturdays through October 15. About a dozen farmers/vendors are expected to participate in the extended market.
“Because of the weather pattern this summer, our farmers continue to have crops in the field,”# says Suwanee Events Manager Amy Doherty. “We decided to extend the market in order to offer area residents fresh produce for as long as possible.”#
This Saturday, October 1, will mark the final market this year at Town Center Park. Because other events had been previously scheduled, the October 8 and 15 markets will be held in the parking lot of the Suwanee Police Department, 373 Buford Highway, across the street from Town Center Park.
