ALBANY, GA (WALB) –You may soon be able to purchase fruits and vegetables from local farmers at a downtown Albany farmers market.

This morning city officials, farmers extension agents and other individuals met to discuss the possibility.

Organizers say there's a lot of demand and having a farmers market downtown would help revive the area.

Right now, they're looking at some spots including the Mule Barn and one of the parking decks.

"We want to make sure farmers from all across southwest Georgia really have a viable market to take their produce, a lot of goods and service and of course we want to bring local arts and crafts to the table," said David Milliner, East Baker Historical Society Director.

They hope to have a farmers market up and running by June 1st.
