Mid-Week Market Moves to City Hall
Full Circle is proud to sponsor the Athens Farmers Market again this year. Here's an update on a new location for the mid-week market from our friends at The Flagpole:
Summer has arrived and, as always, it ushers in a quieter, more relaxed downtown Athens. Whether it’s because of the relentless heat or the exodus of university students, everything just seems to move a little more slowly. And what better way to embrace the simplicity of the season than by enjoying some freshly picked strawberries or a summer salad made from seasonal ingredients, all found at our very own Athens Farmers Market? The Saturday market will continue to be held at Bishop Park, but organizers hope you may be more inclined to check out the midweek market this summer because of its new, more centralized and visible location.
Beginning Wednesday, May 16 and continuing until the market closes for the colder months in October, the midweek market will operate on Wednesday evenings from 4–7 p.m. on the sidewalks lining College Avenue and Washington Street right in front of City Hall. The Bishop Park market will continue to be held on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m.–12 p.m.
