"What's more green than supporting sustainable food at your St. Patrick's party?" Forsyth Park Farmers' Market manager Teri Schell asks in the weekly newsletter.
The market and its vendors and volunteers will again be out March 15, despite all the St. Patrick's weekend festivities, to bring Savannah the freshest produce and locally made goods available.
Schell says they could also really benefit from some extra hands during set-up from 7-9 a.m. and clean-up from 1-2:30 p.m. If you would like to volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
