— Written By

Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 10 am we will start cutting the selected melons. Many different varieties will be available for you to sample and give the thumbs up for your favorite.

Watermelons, cantaloupe, squash, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, onions, okra, snaps, peas, new potatoes, sweet corn are available for purchase. These delicious veggies are grown right here in Franklin County. It has been one of our great pleasures this season visiting our Vendor’s gardens.

Homemade items can be found most market days: Jams, jellies, pickles, fresh baked breads and pies.

Join us on Tuesday, Friday at 9am and Saturday at 8am at The Franklin County Farmers Market located in the Shannon Village Shopping Center, Louisburg.

Come join us!

Thank you, Pat Walker, Market Manager
