Grand opening Saturday for So Bo Farmers Market / June 15, 2017
The public is invited to a grand opening celebration of the South Boston Farmers Market Saturday. The opening marks the 30th Anniversary of the Market.

“Come enjoy refreshments, music, and as always, lots of home grown and homemade goodies from people you know and trust,” said Market Manager Ben Capozzio. The market will be open beginning at 7:30 a.m. until the farmers sell out of string beans, beets, blueberries, onions, red potatoes, squash, cabbage, cucumbers, zucchini, broccoli, baked goods, grass-fed-finished beef, duck and chicken eggs, non GMO pastured pork, vegetable plants and flowers and tomatoes!

Activities for the day include 10 - 11 a.m. live music by The Blue Grass Five and door prize drawings. Maria Traynham with Virginia Cooperative Extension Family Nutrition will do a cooking demonstration using produce bought on site at the market that morning and bottled water will be available compliments of Grand Springs as well as coffee and lemonade.

Come hungry - two food trucks will be on site - Mama Crockett’s Cider Donuts and Tacos el Kora.

Virginia Cooperative Extension will be on hand all morning with the Master Gardeners Help Desk and The South Boston Fire Department will be on hand to show a fire truck up close as well as visit with firefighters and give some fire safety tips. They will have fire safety literature for the adults and giveaways for the kids.

The Farmers Market accepts SNAP/EBT on Saturdays and you can stretch your dollars with Double Bucks thanks to our Double Bucks Sponsor Optima Health Family Care!

Capozzi says, “Come early and enjoy yourself! You can get everything you need at the market for an entire week of meals, from fresh vegetables, to breakfast sausage, to dinner steaks!”

The Farmers Market is located at 300 Broad Street in the parking lot behind Distinct Impressions and across from True Value.
