News from the farmers market

New farmers market planned for Macon 

The Macon County Heritage Center at the old Cowee School is launching a new farmers market in the region this summer.

Friends of the Rickman Store has received a small startup grant for planning the market. It will be on a different day than the Franklin farmer’s market, giving local growers an outlet to increase sales and expand production. The new market may also pull in new growers and new buyers due to the different location.

Food for thought at Farmers Market

The Jackson County Farmers Market has a lending library full of books and DVDs mostly focused on food — growing, eating, and cooking it. Become a Friend of the Market by donating a minimum of $5 to the market and get check-out privileges for these resource materials. For a complete listing of books and DVDs, visit www.jacksoncountyfarmersmarket.org/books/library-books-and-dvds/. 

The farmer’s market winter hours are Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Community Table, 23 Central St. in downtown Sylva.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
