The 2009 Salisbury Farmers Market officially opens Saturday morning at 7 a.m. The market is located at the corner of South Main and Bank streets in downtown Salisbury.
Two large green shade canopies easily identify the area where local producers will be selling local produce and meat, flowers, baked goods and local handmade crafts.
The farmers market will be open two days a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until noon.
Please note that the market will be closing earlier this season.

Visiting local growers is one of the benefits of this market. Growers enjoy sharing their knowledge about their crops and are eager impart information. Those that shop at the market should keep an open dialogue with vendors and growers to learn about future availability of produce and other crops. Growers also need your input to help them determine future plantings. Many have recipes and cooking tips along with their produce. Now is a good to establish a relationship with local growers.
Harry Agner is the market manager, coordinating the logistics of the market and is there to help customers if necessary and enforce market rules and guidelines.
Because of food safety concerns, pets will not be allowed in the market area.
