Farmers market open in HartsellePublished 12:01pm Friday, June 20, 2014
The farmers are back at the market with locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables.
Hartselle Farmers Market was operating with four vendors Friday. They were stocked with green beans, red potatoes, squash, okra, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, blueberries and homemade jams and jellies.
“Gardens are a little later than usual because of the wet spring,” said John Hamm. “But hot, dry weather this week has helped a lot. We’ll have plenty of red tomatoes in a week or two.”
Don McCutcheon added that his sweet corn will be ripe for harvest within the next few days.
The market is located on South Sparkman Street and is open Monday through Saturday. Most vendors set up displays two or three days a week. Hours begin around 7 a.m.
