The New Harvest Park Farmers Market will officially kick off its 2018 season on Thursday, April 12 at 3 p.m. with Knox County Commission Vice Chairman Charles Busler ringing the bell to get opening day started.
“It’s a great opportunity to explore the variety of fresh, delicious food that we will have available,” said Rebecca Saldivar, manager of the New Harvest Park Farmers Market.
The April 12th event will include roughly 20 vendors and will feature an assortment of locally-grown produce, meats, artisan food products, honey, plants, herbs, flowers, crafts and more.
The famers market participates in the Fre$h Savings program, which works in conjunction with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. Under it, participants who spend up to $20 per transaction on their SNAP card will get a matching amount in tokens to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the market.
The event is free and open to the public. It will take place at New Harvest Parkt, located at 4775 New Harvest Park Lane. The New Harvest Park Farmers Market will be open every Thursday through mid-November from 3 to 6 p.m.
