Farmers Market to open in April under new plan

— This year marks the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the Limestone County Farmers Market.

For starters, there will be two separate market events hosted by two separate organizations at the same location.

Limestone County is in charge of the regular farmers market. It is scheduled to open in mid-April, possibly the 15th. County administrator Pam Ball said the committee is working to finalize a date, but is waiting for renovation work to be completed on the pavilion.

Operating hours are 6:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The market will stay open, rain or shine, unless there is a threat of severe weather.

The weekday market is open to local growers and producers. Producers, as defined by the county, are those that grow or make a product locally. No flea market items will be allowed for sell, but local artisans can sell homespun goods. Ball said anyone wishing to sell produce must first get a permit from the Limestone County Extension Office at 1109 Market St.
