The Woodstock Farm Fresh Market kicks off its 10th year in Woodstock on April 21 on Market Street. Hours will be 8:30 a.m. to noon, and the market will close in December.
The market requires produce vendors to grow at least 85 percent of the product they bring to the market. Vendors are subject to inspection to make sure they are growing the required amount of produce. These rules were implemented to guarantee that shoppers know for sure that the produce is locally grown.
In addition to locally grown produce, vendors will be selling jams and jellies, honey, baked bread, pastries, bath and beauty products, and much more.
Synovus Bank returns this year as a sponsor, and a continuing partnership with the Cherokee County Farm Bureau brings great events to the market, such as a pie baking and eating contest, a watermelon eating contest, and other fun and educational events.
