Forsyth Park Farmers' Market manager Teri Schell and the rest of the market volunteers are excited to welcome spring, according to their weekly newsletter.
"Last week, Walker Farms brought daffodils from 3 Sisters Farms, and wow, they were beautiful!" Schell says. "Combined with Honeydew Farms' tulips, it seemed winter was merely a horrible dream.
"I think we're all ready to put winter behind us and focus on all the Savannah flowers and springtime festivities and put the frigid winter out of our collective minds. Winter was truly one of discontent for many of us, and I am truly glad for the coming sun."
The market and its vendors and volunteers will again be out March 22, and shoppers can look forward to more springtime fruit and vegetables this week.
