The award-winning Snellville Farmers’ Market will open its ninth season Saturday.

The popular weekly market is open each Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the Towne Green through Sept. 29.

The market will open its season with the National Anthem sung by Snellville's own Kriss Johnson at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. Johnson is the 2015 Ms. Senior Georgia and the 2017 Ms. National Patriot.

Also, David Tyberg, will entertain patrons with his tenor banjo, focusing on rock/pop favorites, jazz and Broadway classics, as well as his own pop songwriting. More entertainment and guests will be featured throughout the season.

The market features products that come from farms and gardens that, for the most part, are located within a 100-mile radius of Snellville. When you purchase local produce, rather than produce that has been shipped across the country, it comes from farmers who have nurtured their crops and usually picked their produce the day before the market, or even early that morning. For the consumer, this means the produce they purchase is freshly picked and flavorful.

Primary parking is across the street in the City Hall parking lot with overflow parking at Cobblestone Place.

There will be new vendors this year, as well as all your favorites from years past.
