2015 OPENING DAY OF THE FARMERS MARKET OF JACKSONVILLE

It’s that time of year again at the Farmers Market of Jacksonville, AL to “Buy Fresh, Buy Local”. The best produce is fresh, locally grown, and the Farmers Market of Jacksonville, Alabama is home to some of the best food producers and farmers in North East Alabama. This Alabama Certified Farmers Market is a seasonal market that draws in farmers from Calhoun County and several surrounding counties as well as bakers, canners, flower gardeners, and artisans. At the market, you will find traditionally and naturally grown seasonal produce, honey, canned goods, baked goods, tamales, fry bread, herbal soap, cheese, home churned ice cream, potted herbs, potted plants, seedlings, concrete yard decor, birdhouses, and bird feeders. We started this market in 2010 with the idea of “Helping Feed Our Community” with the best food available.

The Farmers Market of Jacksonville is run by a market manager and volunteer citizens who present the market in an exciting and beneficial way. The market focuses on providing quality produce and goods by serving the residents of this area in a way that enhances their quality of life.

We will kick off the market season on May 2nd at 8:00am. The market dates and times are Saturdays, May 2nd – October 31st from 8:00am-12:00pm and Tuesdays, June 2nd – September 1st from 4:00pm-6:00pm. The market is located on the Jacksonville Square.
