John H. Hale Farmers Market open until 6 p.m. today

Live Oak —

The annual farmers market at John H. Hale Park, 215 NE Duval Street, Live Oak is now open on Fridays from 12pm to 6pm.   The market features locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables and other farm products, locally prepared foods and regional specialties.  The market operates on a ‘make it, bake it, or grow it’ philosophy emphasizing priority of locally sourced products. 

Today at the market: Fruits, vegetables, plants (new), honey (new), shrimp (new) and baked goods. 

Upcoming special event: Friday, June 13 from 12 to 6 p.m “School’s Out and the Crops are In.” Learn about what food grows and is ready to eat in the Suwannee Valley. Meet our farmers. Have fun. Eat healthy. Eat local. 

Interested local farmers and food entrepreneurs can obtain market rules at Live Oak City Hall, Suwannee County Extension Office, the Suwannee Valley Chamber of Commerce, or at the Market on Fridays. The market serves the greater Suwannee Valley and some farmers accept WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program Coupons. Credit, debit and SNAP access are planned for the future. 

Formerly managed by Tower View Inc., the market is currently under the operation of Sharon L Yeago LLC. The market will continue to be managed onsite by Jennifer Turner of Turner Farms. The market is being supported with marketing and technical support from the city of Live Oak Community Redevelopment Agency.
