Originally scheduled to close October 1, the 2011 Suwanee Farmers Market has been extended two weeks. The market will now be open from 8 a.m.-noon Saturdays through October 15. About a dozen farmers/vendors are expected to participate in the extended market.
“Because of the weather pattern this summer, our farmers continue to have crops in the field,” says Suwanee Events Manager Amy Doherty. “We decided to extend the market in order to offer area residents fresh produce for as long as possible.”
This Saturday, October 1, will mark the final market this year at Town Center Park. Because other events had been previously scheduled, the October 8 and 15 markets will be held in the parking lot of the Suwanee Police Department, 373 Buford Highway, across the street from Town Center Park.
