Top 10 Plus Local Farmers Markets and Hours

Week of Aug 2 -8 is National Farmers Markets Week

Booths Corner Farmers Market opened in 1930, it has everything. I personally have so many memories of that place.  It was often date night with one of my favorite dates, my father. The taters guy that got right in you face, so it seemed, loudly announcing his goods, "taters, taters for sale", scared me but not my father, we got them all the time. However, his favorite place to go was the auction.  We came home with so many things we didn't need and sometimes in volume.  My mother would roll her eyes and my father would say, it was a good price.  I got a plastic toy or two outta the deal.

Media Farmer's Market located at the Media Theater parking lot every Thursday 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. May through November.
