One of the organizers said there is a need for this market in the community.

“Andersonville is a food desert. We don’t have a gas station, we don’t have a red light. We have a little restaurant, we have a museum, we have a little antique store,” said farmers market organizer Audra Warren.

The farmers market will be open every Saturday from 7 a.m. until around lunchtime.

They will also be open Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

It will be located at the Easterlin Bandstand in downtown.
