SW Farmers Market

Fresh fruits and vegetables made a return to the parking lot of Valley High School this past weekend when the Southwest Farmers Market began its second year on Saturday.

“Because of last year’s success, the Southwest Farmers Market is back in business again,” says Councilman Bob Henderson (D-14). “This is a great way to help local farmers and at the same time help our local economy.”

This year the Farmers Market will be open for business from 9:00am to 1:00pm. It will run every Saturday through the month of October. Valley High School is located at 10200 Dixie Highway.

“This is truly a community oriented Farmers Market, it needs our help to be successful,” says Henderson. “There are a great many people who have worked hard to bring these kinds of fresh produce to us out in the Southwest.”
