CORDELE, GA (WALB) - The State Farmers Market has been a staple in Cordele for years, serving as a hub of agriculture and attracting visitors looking for fresh produce.

But over the years there's been a drop in business.

The market, located off Highway 41 north is open seven days a week, year round.   While the market usually doesn't pick up until the middle of June, some workers say the market isn't as busy as it used to be.

"It used to be more stuff. We use to have more people, more buyers coming in. We don't have the buyers like we use to and stuff like that. I don't know what is the problem," said Ganise Hardrick of Taylor Orchard Farms.

County officials say they're in talks to add billboards along the interstate to attract more people to the farmer's market and are looking at ways to add a variety of products.
