Savannah Farmers’ Market opening Wednesdays at 8 a.m.

A farmers’ market in downtown Savannah will be bustling bright and early on Wednesday, April 14.
The market has become a popular place for residents to find healthy, delicious food options, health screenings and summer fun, says Beth Pippin, Hardin County tourism director.
“We are located at the Savannah Market, downtown at the corner of Main and Williams Streets,” said Pippin. “Again, this season the market will be stocked with produce fresh from the fields, succulent fruits, country eggs, local meats and cheeses, and the sweetest baked goods. It is also a great place to pick up local delicacies like home-made jellies, relishes, and honey. You can even grab a bouquet of fresh flowers, which are grown right here in Hardin and our surrounding counties.”
Farmers Market days are every Wednesday, April 14 through mid-November. A variety of vendors set up each week. Each vendor’s wares change as the crops come in and harvestings begin. The hours are 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. or until they sell out each Wednesday. UT Extension also hosts a monthly Second Saturday market for farm vendors and local crafters.
“We are excited to once again bring locally grown healthy food and health resources to our Hardin County families,” Pippin added, “and to partner with the City of Savannah, Pick Tennessee Products and our local UT Extension Services.”
Throughout the season, UT Extension will offer food products and information on providing healthy food choices for our area.
