Fresh fruits and vegetables make a return to the parking lot of Valley High School this weekend when the Southwest Farmers Market begins its second year on Saturday, June 6th.

“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.”

If you would like to be a vendor you can call 935-0310, ext 239 or send an email to jkyle@southwestfarmersmarket.org.
