Every Tuesday and Friday the Farmer's market will open at 9:00 am and will shut down once the last fruit or veggie is sold. On Saturday, the market will open at 8:00am.
Franklin County Farmer's Market is continuing into late summer! It would be great if you and your family came to support your local farmers and their farms at our local market. This newsletter will serve to recognize the hard-working farmers in the area, a delicious recipe or two containing a vegetable or fruit from the Market and what may be available each week at the Market.
