LYNCHBURG, Tenn. – The merchants, sellers and producers at the Lynchburg Farmers Market want to say thank you.
And they’ll be doing so with a Customer Appreciation Day on Friday, Oct. 17 as they close out the Famers Market for the season.
The 17th will be the last day of the Farmers Market for 2014. It will return for its fourth season in the spring, most likely in mid-May. The market is open on Friday’s from 3-6 p.m.
As the merchants there wrap up 2014, they’ll be offering “hot dogs, cold drinks and chips for anybody who wants to come by,” according to UT Extension Agent and County Director Larry Moorehead. “They wanted to say thank you and show their appreciation,” he added.
Moorehead said there are still plenty of fresh vegetables, canned goods, sweets and local honey at the market, which, in its third year, has seen growth and increased success. Many of the merchants have regular customers who frequent the market looking for specific items, or simply trying to find fresh homegrown goods.
“It’s been real good this year,” said Moorehead. “We have had anywhere from 6 to 10 (merchants) selling every week and the customers have been coming. They have been totally satisfied with it.”
