The Farmers Market, presented by Downtown Washington on the Waterfront, will make a temporary move this weekend when the Summer Festival comes to downtown Washington.
This Saturday, the Farmers Market will relocate to the lawn area at the corner of Main and Gladden streets near the caboose, which is adjacent to the Beaufort County Arts Council’s headquarters. The move is required to accommodate all events and activities planned for the waterfront on Saturday, according to Joey Toler, DWOW’s interim director.
The Farmers Market will return to its permanent location in the parking lot next to the Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce on June 16.
The Farmers Market has been open every Saturday since April 7. Continuing every Saturday through Oct. 20, market hours are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., or until items are sold out.
As the growing season progresses, more produce is coming into season and the selection expands each week. In addition to produce, customers may also shop for home baked goods, fresh flowers, shrubs, flowering plants and more.
