Farmers Market: Farm fresh produce available again July 20

By STAFF REPORTS,

It’s what we have been waiting for… homegrown tomatoes, sweet corn, watermelon, cantaloupe, peas, beans and a plethora of other vegetables. The Petal Farmer’s Market will have all of it and more on Saturday, July 20 from 9:00 – 12:00.  Produce farmers will be on hand as well as a variety of arts, crafts, and food vendors. The market is located at 128 S. Main Street in front of Grand Central Outfitters.

Why should you visit the farmer’s market? For obvious reasons, choosing to shop locally at the Petal farmers market supports farmers and our local community by keeping consumer money directly in our area—funneled from you directly to the farmer. He or she may even be the person planting, harvesting, and selling you the fruit or veggies at the market stall.

Secondly, it is a time to visit, meet and enjoy the ambiance of a small town coming together. While you are downtown, take a few extra minutes to visit the downtown merchants and thank them for their investment in Petal.
