ARLINGTON, GA (WALB) -

A small south Georgia town will soon be able to buy fresh produce from their local farmers.

The City of Arlington has received a $40,000 dollar Rural Business Enterprise Grant to construct the Lick Skillet Farmers Market on the Calhoun and Early County line.

This will allow local and regional farmers to sell their produce to the community.

The market will be constructed so that as interest increases, more buildings can be added for other farmers and sellers.

"And we are hoping that it would draw attention to our downtown area, have people come into town stop and maybe put more businesses here," said Downtown Development Manager, Tami Fincher.

The market will also allow other sellers marketing edible, farm-related produces a central location to sell their products such as jams, jellies, pies, and boiled peanuts.
