The Sanford Farmers Market is back in business for its 21st year, with hours every Saturday from 9am to noon, from April 13 through October. The market is located at the McSwain Center, 2420 Tramway Road, near Southern Lee High School and SanLee Middle School. There’s always offers a wide selection of fresh products direct from area farms, including produce, baked goods, crafts, artwork, compost and more. It’s a great place to shop and fun environment for every family member.
With roughly a dozen or more merchants participating each week, the farmers market is a place to support local agri-businesses and eat local. Every booth is staffed by farmers located within 50 miles of Sanford who actually grow and produce their products. No buying or reselling is permitted. And of course, the selection changes with the growing seasons, so it’s a good idea to drop by on a frequent basis. This time of year, you’re likely to find a full selection of watermelons, blueberries, jams & jellies and lots of veggies.
