New logo for South Boston Farmers Market season March 9

South Boston News / March 04, 2019

Vendors at the Downtown South Boston Farmers Market are making plans for a great 2019 season.

The market met last week and unveiled a new logo. Tamyra Vest, executive director of Destination Downtown South Boston, said, “We took the opportunity starting off in 2019 to do a branding refresh at the market. We worked with Arnett Muldrow & Associates from Greenville, South Carolina, to help us create a fresh new look and we’re very excited with the results.

“We also have some market construction improvements under way. Anyone who has been to the market knows that you have to be careful not to fall off the sidewalk between the vendor tables and the end of the sidewalk. So we’re extending the sidewalk by three feet on each side, making for more room.

“With spring rapidly approaching, the market officially opens on Saturday, with Tuck Farms. They’ve been staying busy over the winter in their certified organic greenhouses to bring you quality produce plants and flowers. They are taking orders for larger quantities of plants now, and they’ll be at the market starting March 9.”

The Farmers Market is located at 300 Broad Street in the parking lot behind Distinct Impressions and across from True Value. To join in, call the Market manager at 434-489-7533 or the Market president at 540-490-1406.
