The new Troutville Farmers Market added a couple of new vendors during its second session Saturday.
Carol Turner brought vegetables—some heirloom—and flowers that she’s growing at her greenhouse in Daleville. Another new vendor had Botetourt-grown frozen beef to sell.
The Farmers Market is Saturdays from 7 a.m.-noon in Shelter B of Troutville Town Park. It is sponsored by Friends of the Park.
Local and area farmers, crafters and value-added producers are invited to set up at the Town Park. The vendor fee is $5.
Organizers welcome local vegetable and flower producers, farmers, crafters (homemade only), folks who make their own homemade jellies, jams, breads and baked goods, etc. No yard sale items or items bought to be resold are allowed.
Those who sell homemade food products are reminded that labels must include the ingredients and a note that the foods are not state inspected.
