Farmer’s Market is for everyone

The Farmville Community Marketplace has a little something for everyone. Vendors selling anything from produce to crafts gather starting at 9 a.m. each Saturday. Rodney Lewis has been managing the Farmer’s Market for the last three years. He said he has seen the market grow since becoming manager.

On an average Saturday, Lewis said, the market has about four produce vendors, two bakers, two soap makers, two meat vendors and some artists selling craft products.

In the center of the market is a “Kids Corner,” with crafts and toys set up. Sarah Gardner helps to watch children while their parents shop at the market.

The market opens in April each year and runs through October.
