Williamston Farmers’ Market Will Open Seventh Season With More Vendors

The City of Williamston’s Farmers’ Market will open for its seventh season on Thurs. May 20. The hours of the market are 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and it will be open every Thurs. until Oct. 14.

The grand opening will feature several special highlights. “There will be live music near the end of the market day and children activities from the local libraries,” says Christine Miller, the market manager. This is Miller’s second season with the market. The number of vendors this season will be 10 to 15, an increase over last year.

Miller says the inspiration behind starting the market was “to bring commerce to the downtown area and to provide the community a source of local fruits and vegetables.”

Miller says that the people of Williamston are supportive of the market. “Many people are wanting to learn more about how products are grown and they want to know where their food is coming from and who is raising it.”

Miller advises shoppers to keep coming back. “Please visit the market throughout the season," she says, "as products and vendors will change as the season progresses."

The market is set up in Williamston’s City Hall parking lot.
