Richmond Hill Farmer’s Market opens April 30

The Richmond Hill Farmer’s Market will open Saturday, April 30 from 3-6:30 p.m. and continue weekly on the grounds of the Richmond Hill History Museum, 11460 Ford Avenue.

A ribbon cutting, marking the opening, will take place at 3:30 p.m. Chamber members and their guests are invited to take advantage of an afternoon to congratulate the Farmers Market on their grand opening and welcome them to the RHBC Chamber.

A few samples of suppliers will be available for those present. In addition, Down South Cheesesteaks will have its food truck there for those wishing to purchase a meal.

The Richmond Hill Farmer’s Market will be held every Saturday.

According to the chamber, the market’s mission is “to strengthen our community by providing a platform to showcase our local farmers, artisans, small business owners and artists.”

“The market values ​​the deep-rooted passion of our community and strives to reinvigorate Richmond Hill’s beloved tradition of ‘Build the Hill’ with a weekly family event for all to enjoy. As a committee, we strive to have a market of integrity To do this, we aim, above all, to bring consumers fresh produce from regional producers in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida, thereby promoting and stimulating the economy regional agriculture.

“We do NOT accept brokers (suppliers who do not grow or produce any of their own products).”

The idea of ​​bringing the Farmers Market back to Richmond Hill is the brainchild of Morgan Anderson (owner of Anderson Mercantile) and Blake Young (owner of The Green Spork). They are supported in this effort by Samantha Byrd, Shellie Davis, Paul Downs, Jackie Montesino and Jenni Phillips.
