This weekend we will ‘spring forward’ into daylight savings time, so remember to change your clocks! Luckily, the change happens Saturday night, so it won’t impact this week’s market, and by next week we should all be used to the ‘new’ time…right?
A big congratulations to Forsyth Farmer’s Market founding member and market manager Teri Schell, who was honored at last week’s Georgia Organics Conference with the 2014 Barbara Petit Pollinator Award. The Pollinator award honors an individual or organization for outstanding community leadership in Georgia’s sustainable farming and food movement. “I’m pleased to be able to contribute […]
The market is collecting cookbooks for a project – if you have any to donate, please bring them to Teri at the Market table on Saturday. Thanks!
We just learned that FFM was #1 last year in SNAP/EBT redemptions at a farmers’ market for the state of Georgia. That represents approximately $62,000 in good food for our neighbors and $62,000 in income for our vendors. Half of that amount comes from federal benefits (SNAP/EBT, commonly called food stamps) and 60% of the other […]
We’re baaaaaack! This Saturday the farmers market returns to Forsyth Park after a two-week hiatus. We resume our normal hours of 9-1, and look forward to seeing you there!

Representatives for the CRITZ TYBEE RUN FEST 2014 will have a booth this Saturday with event information, race sign up, special deals, and tips on healthy living.

The third annual Savannah Rock’n'Roll Marathon takes place this Saturday, and once again ends in Forsyth Park. It will be a great day to run, listen, and be part of a city-wide event, but not a good day to hold the market. So the Forsyth Framer’s market will be closed on Saturday, November 5. Good luck […]
