If you can't find your favorite vendor, organizers suggest checking at the main market table.
Joseph Fields Farm is the vendor of the week. The farm has been one of the market's anchor produce vendors since 2009. Learn more about the family here.
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. Donations go toward the costs of running the market, such as insurance, banking fees, etc.
