Vendors will return to Forsyth Park this weekend for the launch of the 2019 Forsyth Farmers’ Market.
The first farmers’ market of the new year will be held Saturday, Jan. 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Organizers say several new vendors will be coming to the farmers’ market this year.
Two new farms, Whippoorwill Farms and Ebenezer Greens, will be joining. Several food vendors, including The Blissful Whisk, Savannah Cheese Rolls, Savannah Square Pops, and The Grey Market will also head to Forsyth Park.
Savannah Hydroponics and Analog Public House will be joining later in the spring.
“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,” Jeb Bush, executive director of Forsyth Farmers’ Market stated. “Each vendor brings their own unique foods and perspective to our market. I’m glad to see so much growth this year.”
Forsyth Farmers’ Market is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote a local food system in Savannah.
The farmers’ market will be open for 50 weeks this year. It will be closed for the St. Patrick’s Day and Rock & Roll Marathon weekends.
