Anderson County Farmer’s Market Reopens with More Vendors

Although it doesn’t feel like Spring today, the Anderson County Farmer’s Market has officially opened for the season at the old train depot on US127.

Nathan Truesdell, vice president of the market, is excited for the new season.  The market will feature 30 vendors throughout the year, showcasing lots of locally made and grown items.  He explained that the market keeps things as local as possible, only allowing farmers and crafters from Anderson and surrounding counties.

Along with lots of arts, crafts, produce, plants, and meats, Nathan said they have new vendors this year, including a bakery and mulch that helps support the ACHS Project Graduation.  They are also planning a number of events throughout the year including a farm to table dinner and a fall festival.

Nathan also explained that the market is more than just a market.  They hold herb classes every second Tuesday of each month at 1pm as well as have a butterfly and herb garden growing for those stopping by the market to enjoy

The market will be open Friday from 12pm to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 3pm with some possible hours on Sunday and will have donuts for visitors this weekend.  For more information, check out their Facebook page.
