ANDERSONVILLE — The Andersonville Farmers Market returns to the neighborhood next week, offering dozens of vendors, live entertainment and demonstrations.
The 14th edition of the Andersonville Farmers Market begins May 10 and runs 3-7 p.m. Wednesdays through Oct. 18. It is on Catalpa Avenue between Clark Street and Ashland Avenue, which is slated to be turned into a community plaza.
This year’s farmers market will include 32 vendors, with six new vendors: Downstate Donuts, Global Garden Refugee Farm, Lunch Money Macaron, knife-sharpening business Sharpening By Dave, the Talking Farm and Zeitlin’s Deli.
Returning vendors include Karl’s Craft Soup, Hillside Orchards, Stamper Cheese and Tasting India. Neighborhood favorites Lost Larson, First Slice Pie Cafe and Sfera will also have a presence at the market.
All food products sold at the market are produced within 200 miles, according to the Andersonville Sustainable Community Alliance, which produces the event.
The market will include weekly live entertainment. There will also be cooking demonstrations and kids activities scheduled on a regular basis, organizers said.
Link cards can be used at the market, which will match every dollar spent at the market with a Link card to double how much those customers can buy, according to organizers.
Older and at-risk customers will be given priority entrance when the market opens at 3 p.m.
