For those that have been craving local honey, fresh fruits and vegetables and other home goods, don’t worry.

The 2018 Andalusia Farmers Market will kick off its season on Sat., May 19. from 7 a.m. until noon at the Powerplant Market Place on Central Street.

From then, the market will be open every Wednesday and Saturday from 7 a.m. until noon.

“The farmers’ market usually starts in May and ends by the end of August,” Allison Vuyovich, the market manager, said. Vuyovich also works with the city’s horticulture department.

“There’s going to be a little bit of everything, which is great. There will be vegetables, fruit, baked goods, jams, jellies, fresh cut flowers and craft goods,” she said.

The market will be an outside market, with the building open for bathroom facilities.

Vuyovich said that the annual sellers’ meeting was held Tuesday night.

“At the initial meeting there were about 10 sellers there,” she said. “But people can join any time.”

Vuyovich’s goal for the farmer’s market is to have a family feel.

“I want this to be a thing where families come out and do their shopping,” she said.

This is Vuyovich’s first year as the market manager but she’s hoping to get more social media interaction.

“I’m trying to up the social media use and I’m looking to do seller’s bios so that people can know who they’re buying from,” she said. “I’m thrilled to be the market manager.”
