Forsyth Farmers’ Market Launches 2019 Season
The Forsyth Farmers’ Market, a local non-profit organization that seeks to promote a local food system in Savannah, looks forward to new changes and continual growth in the 2019 year. The first farmers’ market of 2019 will be Saturday, January 5th in Forsyth Park from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm.
In addition to all of your old favorites, several new vendors will be joining farmers’ market this year. We have two new farms: Whippoorwill Farms and Ebenezer Greens. We will also be bringing in several new prepared food vendors: The Blissful Whisk, Savannah Cheese Rolls, Savannah Square Pops, and The Grey Market. Savannah Hydroponics and Analog Public House will also be joining us later in the spring. Each year, the market continues to provide local entrepreneurs with a downtown venue to sell products while maintaining a 60/40 ratio of whole food vendors to prepared foods vendors in line with our vision of supporting local agriculture. All the vendors at our market are chosen by a volunteer led committee.
Jeb Bush, executive director of FFM states, “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. Each vendor brings their own unique foods and perspective to our market. I’m glad to see so much growth this year.”
The market will be open for 50 weeks this year. The market will be closed the weekends of St. Patrick’s Day and the Rock & Roll Marathon.
