The Forsyth Farmers’ Market will host its first market of the 2019 season from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday in Forsyth Park.

In addition to all of the regular favorites, several new vendors will be joining the market this year. Two new farms join the market, Whippoorwill Farms and Ebenezer Greens, plus several new prepared food vendors: The Blissful Whisk, Savannah Cheese Rolls, Savannah Square Pops, and The Grey Market. Savannah Hydroponics and Analog Public House will also be joining later in the spring.

Each year, the market continues to provide local entrepreneurs with a downtown venue to sell products while maintaining a 60/40 ratio of whole food vendors to prepared foods vendors in line with the market's vision of supporting local agriculture. All the vendors at the market are chosen by a volunteer-led committee.

Jeb Bush, executive director of FFM says, “I am excited for our 2019 season to start. It is great to see new vendors coming on board while our current vendors continue to grow their reach. Each vendor brings their own unique foods and perspective to our market. I’m glad to see so much growth this year.”

The market will be open for 50 weeks this year. The market will be closed the weekends of St. Patrick’s Day and the Rock & Roll Marathon.

The Forsyth Farmers' Market Inc. was established in 2009 to promote an understanding and participation in a local food system that supports sustainable production and increases access to local products. Learn more at forsythfarmersmarket.com.
