Folks, who have made a stop at the Forsyth Farmers Market part of their Saturday morning routine, now have more chances to buy locally grown food directly from the farmers, who grew it.  The market’s season, originally scheduled to conclude today, has been extended for another month. What’s the deal with the market?

The Forsyth Farmers Market was organized by the Savannah Local Food Collaborative  with the primary mission of making fresh, regionally grown produce easily accessible to the citizens of Savannah. The market is limited to agricultural and horticultural products.

Located near the tennis courts at the south end of the park, the market lasts from 9 a.m, to 1 p.m. and is open rain or shine. EBT cards are accepted. On the second Saturday of each month, a “Health Pavilion” features lectures and workshops. A schedule is available on the market’s Web site.
