TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Tifton leaders had several family activities to promote the city's farmer's market. 

In downtown Tifton, The Tifton Economic Development Authority worked to attract visitors to their farmer's market with free ice cream, live music, activities for kids and several vendors. They say the farmer's market has been around for several years and they want the community to see all that it has to offer. 

"We're actually just promoting the farmer's market, we're trying to make it a bigger event here located in downtown Tifton,” said Tambra Griffin, Tifton EDA Marketing Coordinator. “So, we're just trying to get more people to be more involved in the community." 

 The Tifton Farmer's Market sets up downtown every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 

The Tifton Economic Development Authority is also partnering with the Tifton Gazette for a fan drive. The Tifton Gazette will give out electrical fans to families in need. They’ve collected 13 fans so far from Lowe’s and Citizen Hardware. You can donate fans to the Welcome Center in downtown Tifton.
