ATHENS, Ala. – Fall is in the air, and what is more exciting than the prospect of fresh fall produce provided by your nearby farmers’ market.
On October 16, 2021, patrons are encouraged to visit the Athens Saturday Market at 409 Green Street from 8 a.m. to Noon.
Market Manager Kat Greene says to be sure to bring your ghosts and goblins to the market on Saturday.
“We will have a special fall craft for the kids to make and they can trick or treat at each of the vendor booths,” said Greene.
The market is not only a great place to purchase local produce and goods, but it is a place to enjoy the day with family and friends. This year, to celebrate our Fall Market, Taylor Burton of the Silver Silos will provide live music from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. In addition, Happi Pappi Beignet Truck will be there with their yummy breakfast treats.
Have a gardening question? Stop by and chat with the local Master Gardeners and bring the kids to enjoy our weekly Kids Program activity.
The Athens Saturday Market is an Alabama Certified Farmers Market. This means that all produce is locally and naturally grown in North Alabama or the Tennessee Valley. Prepared foods sold at the market are also locally made, as are the handcrafted goods offered by our local artisans. Athens Saturday Market is a program of Athens Main Street.
