Lovers of fresh produce, colorful flowers, and delicious baked goods can double their pleasure this year at the Suwanee Farmers Market. In addition to its traditional Saturday morning hours, the Suwanee market also will be open Tuesday evenings.
"Our farmers are excited to be able to offer fresh produce twice a week through the Suwanee market," says Events Coordinator Amy Doherty. "Now, those residents who enjoy sleeping in on the weekend have a chance to enjoy fresh, in-season produce, too, on Tuesday evenings."
The Suwanee Farmers Market will be open at Town Center Park from 8 am-noon Saturdays and 4-7 pm Tuesdays May 1 – October 12.
Nearly two dozen vendors participate in the Suwanee Farmers Market each week, offering in-season produce, herbs and plants, free-range meat and eggs, baked goods, and jams and jellies.
Guidelines and applications for those interested in being part of the 2010 Farmers Market are now available online at www.suwanee.com. Applications will not be accepted until the annual farmers market meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, March 29, at Suwanee City Hall, 330 Town Center Avenue.
