Farmer's Market coming to Americus

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - A local farmer's market will soon be open in one South Georgia city. Farmers had their first meeting in Americus today for the market at Lenny's Market downtown.

Around 25 farmers came out and discussed this year's crop. The market will be open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7 AM to 1 PM.

"The farmers market is actually a great place for locals to come to get fresh foods and actually for the farmers to have a place to sell their products that they grow," said Angie Singletary with the Americus-Sumter Tourism Council.

Singletary says the market will be open sometime in May.
