Local farmers markets Wednesdays

Coweta Farmers Market is open at Powell Expo Center on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Coweta’s farmers and gardeners are selling the fruits — and vegetables — of their labor at the market, at Powell Expo Center, 197 Temple Ave., which runs through September.

In addition to fruits and vegetables, vendors sell jams, jellies, pickles, local honey, live plants, baked goods and hand-made items.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. All products must be made or grown locally, and by the seller or the seller’s family. “Locally” includes Coweta County as well as Carroll, Fayette, Fulton, Heard, Meriwether, Spalding and Troup counties. For anyone interested in selling, vendor fees are $3 a day, $5 a week or $20 a month.

Applications are available at www.ugaextension.com/coweta or at the Coweta Extension Office on Pine Road. Details: Extension Office at 770-254-2620 or market manager Brad West at 770-402-8609.

Also, Our Community Farmers Market is open in cooperation with Main Street Newnan and the city Business Development department Wednesdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the historic train depot between East Broad and East Washington streets.
