In just a little over a week, the Amicalola Regional Farmers Market will officially open for the first day of the 2021 season on Saturday, April 17.
According to a post by the market, this year’s hours will be from 8 a.m. until noon Saturdays, and from 2:30-7 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays.
“We have lots of your favorite vendors returning this year and we will also have fresh seafood and locally raised pork and beef,” the post said. “Fresh vegetables in April, if the weather cooperates, will include lettuce, kale, radishes and snow peas.”
In addition to fresh produce, the market will also offer other locally produced items such as fresh eggs, local honey, baked goods, locally made jams and jellies and homemade arts and crafts.
According to the release on the City of Dawsonville’s website, vendor applications will be accepted for review. Those wishing to participate in the market as vendors can contact Market Manager Clark MacAllister for an application by calling 706-265-2442 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The market will be located at the City of Dawsonville Farmers Market Pavilion at 86 Allen Street. The season is set to run through November 21. For more information and updates on the Amicalola Regional Farmers Market, go to https://www.facebook.com/amicalolafarmersmarket/.
