Albany -- Good news for lovers of home grown fruits and vegetables, the Downtown Farmers Market kicked off today with big crowds showing up to get their hands on some goodies.

Here's a look at the busy scene of the market located at the corner of West Broad and North Jackson earlier this morning.

Hundreds of people made their way from vendor to vendor picking up everything from hot peppers to sweet watermelons.

"This is the first of every Saturday for the whole year. We've had big, big crowds here buying produce and they just about bought as much as the vendors had," says Shirley Sherrod.

The Downtown Farmers Market will run throughout the year each Saturday from 8 AM until 1 PM.

If you're interested in becoming a vendor it's only ten dollars to set up a sales table. For more information, you can call 229-430-9870.
