February's Greenway Farmers Market

Saturday, February 16th from 9 am til noon
What kinds of exciting meals will you be cooking this time next week?  Hopefully they will include some of the best sustainably-grown food in middle Georgia from your favorite farmers at the Greenway Farmers Market!  Your favorite middle Georgia farmers and producers will be at the Oconee River Greenway this Saturday, February 16th, from 9 am til noon with the best locally- and sustainably grown food in town.  You can expect great sustainably grown winter produce and mushrooms; pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb, goat, chicken, and eggs; hormone-free and antibiotic-free milk, cheese, and other dairy products; hearth-baked artisan breads and other baked goods; and handcrafted jams, jellies, and preserves.

The Greenway Farmers Market will continue on the third Saturday this month and next before going weekly this spring!  So, save the date and don't forget to come next Saturday, February 16th from 9 am until noon at the Oconee River Greenway and be sure to stock up for the month!

We Love Our Farmers!

And we know you do, too!  To show your love for the farmers and farmers market, we're holding a contest to see who can write the best farmers market-themed Valentine's poem.  Entries can be submitted here at our facebook page until Friday, February 15th at 6 pm.  A winner will be announced later that evening and receive a $10 gift certificate to the farmers market!  Two entries per person will be accepted, more details on the Greenway Farmers Market facebook page.  Here is a good example, courtesy Ginger Carter Miller, to get your creative juices flowing:
Roses are red,
Kale is bright green,
I love our market,
The food's really keen!

Interested in Volunteering at the Market?

If you are interested in learning how to become more involved, be sure to stop by the market table for more info.  We need volunteers to help run the market table, set up and take down signs on the day of the market, help with marketing, fundraising, playing music and other market day activities, and organize activities for kids.  If you love your farmers and want to give back, please stop by the market table to learn how at the market next Saturday!
