Farmers Market back in Albany

June 7, 2008

Albany -- Downtown Albany re-opened their Farmers Market Saturday. People were able to shop at several tables full of produce grown right here in Southwest Georgia.

The event is sponsored by the city of Albany and the Southwest Georgia Community Food Alliance.  They hope the market will bring local dollars to local farmers who picked these vegetables straight from their fields to bring them fresh to you.

"The produce that we are selling here is grown in the region. We are local. So it's the freshest they can get. It's not shipped for two days across the country. It's not flown in from another continent. It's US Southwest Georgia grown food," said Southwest Georgia Food Alliance President, Judith Corbett.

Local artists also showcased and sold some of their work. The market will be open every Saturday in the parking lot on the 200 block of West Broad Avenue.
