SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Downtown Sylvester's Farmers Market will open for the season on Saturday. Organizers expect more than ten vendors at the Depot in the morning, with both producing and arts and crafts.

There will be antique tractors on display, along with activities for kids.

Market Manager Jana Dyke says events like this showcase the benefits of going back to the basics.

"You know where your produce has come from.  You know that it's clean and it's been handled properly and you get to see it coming straight out of the field. And that's really unique," said Dyke.

The Farmers Market will be open every Saturday through October 28.

The market opens at 9 a.m. and will wrap up for the day at 1 p.m.
