Braselton to inaugurate downtown farmers market starting in May

By Staff
BRASELTON - Just as a lot of people start thinking about spring and planning summer fun, a new Braselton Farmers Market is emerging in the historic downtown.

"We are working hard (to) offer new and exciting programs to the community," said Jennifer Dees, Braselton Town Manager. "We're collaborating with downtown merchants and volunteers to offer events in downtown and looking to recruit new, local and regional farmers for this new venture."

The Braselton Farmers Market has opened applications to be received from local and regional farmers for the inaugural 2014 season at the Braselton Farmers Market to be held on Harrison Street on Fridays from May 16-October 10 from 4-7 p.m.

"We hope the Braselton Farmers Market and our downtown businesses offer everyone a unique opportunity to get to know their local farmers and enjoy shopping in their hometown or close to work," said Dees.
