This Saturday, the Third Street South Farmer’s Market will be celebrating National Farmer’s Market Week, which is August 6th through 12th. In addition to the usual booths, there will be some extra surprises. Farmer’s markets are uniquely poised in local communities to bring people together, often with their pets, promote healthful eating, and support local agriculture, purveyors, and craftsmen. The Third Street South Farmer’s Market has been a popular – and still growing – destination for more than 20 years, and features the best of our region’s artisan foods and goods. Whether sampling locally grown fruits and vegetables, or finding your favorite prepared foods, you will find something that appeals at this year-round market. National Farmer’s Market Week is an important opportunity to shine a light on all that these gatherings contribute to their communities. In the summer months, find the Third Street South Farmer’s Market in the parking lot behind Tommy Bahama and along 13th Avenue South, and from November through April the Market moves to Third Street South between Broad Avenue South and 13th Avenue South. Running weekly, the Market convenes every Saturday morning from 7:30AM to 11:30AM.
