Farmer's Market at Welcome Center open every Saturday morning

Submitted by: Pickett County Chamber of Commerce
Byrdstown is so excited and so proud of our Farmer's Market which has been up and running for the last several Saturday mornings. Hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon or until the produce is sold out each Saturday during the harvest season.
All farmers and gardeners from Pickett County with home grown produce they wish to sell are invited to bring their fruits, vegetables, and herbs to the Farmer's Market Pavilion located at the Byrdstown-Pickett County Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center. This location is easy to find, located on Rte. 111 in Byrdstown. Just look for the signs on the south side of the highway to the west of town.
There is no charge to sellers! However, you are responsible for your produce and pavilion rules. There has been a terrific response by residents and tourists wanting some nice locally grown produce. Everyone is invited to come and sell or to come and purchase. We are expecting our Farmer's Market to get bigger and better with every passing weekend.
So if you want the freshest and most delicious home grown fruits and vegetables stop by on Saturday mornings. (Organic produce is also available.) We suggest you come early so all the goodies are not sold out. Last Saturday the tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and cabbage, among other things were awesome!
Again, if you would like to sell, we welcome you. Even if you only have a small supply, we hope you will come. There is still space available for additional sellers. There is a donation box on the premises for anyone who would like to donate to help pay for the pavilion and tables. "Pick Pickett First! Shop Byrdstown and support our community. We have a great swing and cooling breezes even on hot days. For more local shopping ideas, visit www.ShopByrdstown.com.
