Farmers Market at John Hale Park opens Friday

Live Oak —

The farmers market at John H. Hale Park, 215 NE Duval Street, Live Oak is now open on Fridays from 12 to 6 p.m. The market features locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables and encourages local farmers and food entrepreneurs to join. The market will operate on a “make it, bake it, or grow it” philosophy.

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. 

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. 

For more information, please contact Turner at 904-424-8743 or Yeago at 386-418-8017.
