Farmers, produce sellers needed for Powerplant Marketplace

Published 12:00 am Saturday, April 30, 2011

A meeting is set for those wishing to sell their produce at the Andalusia Powerplant Marketplace.

“We’re asking that anyone who wants to sell their produce come out Tues., May 10, for a sort of orientation meeting,” said Marketplace manager Neal Dansby. “It’s kind of an opportunity to acclimate them to this year’s market. We’re hoping to increase participation, so we thought this meeting would be a good idea.”

Dansby said it will be held at 6 p.m. and a hamburger supper will be provided.

Call Sonja Godwin at 334-428-2102 to register. Deadline is Fri., May 6.

“Just like always, we plan to open the Marketplace on the Wednesday after Memorial Day, which falls on June 1, and we’ll go until Labor Day,” he said.

It is open from 7 a.m. until noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The Powerplant Market Place gives area farmers an outlet to sell their homegrown healthy choices like fresh snap beans, red potatoes, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes and other vegetables and fruits.
