Forsyth Park Farmers' Market organizers said they were surprised at the large turnout for last week's market, despite the cold weather. This week is also going to be a chilly one, but volunteers and vendors will again be out for the Jan. 25 market.
Vendors include Adam's Farm, Avondale Apiary, Berry Farms, Carolina Plantation Rice, Charis Farm, Clark & Sons, Flatland Farms, Georgia Buffalo, Honeydew Farm, Hunter Cattl, Joseph Fields Farm, Ogeechee River Gardens, Ozzie Mack Produce, Readee's Bees, Robert Maxwell of Alake's Pecans, Savannah River Farms, Southern Swiss Dairy, Tierra Verde Farm, Walker Farms, Castra Rota, Cup to Cup, Exit Strategy, Foods of the Farm, Frali Gourmet, Meatless Meals, Perc, Vegetable Kingdom, Verdant Kitchen and Horticulture Morning Glory Natural Plants.
If you can't find your favorite vendor, organizers suggest checking at the main market table.
Exit Strategy is one of the newest vendors at the market. They are based here in Savannah and specialize in craft beer infused frozen custard. They use natural ingredients and local dairy.
Another way to support the market is the Friends of Forsyth Farmers' Market program. For a $25 donation, you get a market tote and a weekly discount card for the vendor of the week (Exit Strategy on Jan. 25). Donations go toward the costs of running the market, such as insurance, banking fees, etc.
Mercer University medical students will be also on hand to perform blood pressure checks and offer educational handouts to help optimize health. Look for the Mercer University booth at the southwest corner of the market to find out more and get screened.
