Saturday Farmers Market in Milledgeville presents local, farm-fresh, seasonal food!
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean there isn’t an abundant supply of local, farm-fresh, seasonal produce, meat, eggs, bread and dairy products available to residents of the Milledgeville community as well as those living in surrounding counties.
This Saturday, Feb. 11, from 9 a.m. to noon, the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church on Wayne and Greene streets in Milledgeville will be filled with an assortment of farm-fresh, nutritious and delicious foods, courtesy of a new farmers market opportunity.
The market, which opened the winter season on Jan. 14 as a huge success, will host 12 local vendors from within 100 miles whose farms and businesses are dedicated to providing nutritious and sustainable products.
Scheduled for Second Saturdays in the winter and weekly after the Grand Opening on April 14, this market is a partnership between First Presbyterian Church, The Milledgeville Community Garden Association, and Live Healthy Baldwin.
