The TIMES paid a visit to the Jackson County Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning. The market is located on the Court House parking lot in the Farmer’s Market pavilion. There was a good supply of “home grown” vegetables on display, as the market was open and doing business.
“At this time we have a good supply of potatoes, tomatoes, onions, cucumber, squash, beans, peas, …and beginning next week we will have some delicious sweet corn for sale,” stated Market Manager, Darlene Smith. “In a few weeks we will have watermelon and cantaloupes for sale.”
The market will be open on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s, and Saturday’s, beginning at 6:30 A.M., and going until sold out. The market is operated by the Jackson County Grower’s Association. Fees for a sales location in the pavilion are $125 for the season, or $10 per day.
The public is encouraged to take time to shop at the market, to save some money, and to support our local growers.
