CORDELE, GA (WALB) - The Farmer's Market in Cordele is officially selling its first watermelons of the year. Florida's crop has been coming in steadily for the last week and a half.
About a half dozen stands are selling watermelons and cantaloupe right now. Workers are eager to get the Georgia watermelons in as soon as possible.
"I advise everybody out there, come on down to Cordele, Georgia. Come get you some of these fresh watermelons, fresh cantaloupes, fresh peaches and everything out here so come on out here to Cordele and see us," said worker Odell Jones.
Georgia's watermelons should be arriving in the middle of June.
