<strong>By Sarah Richardson<\/strong>\r\n\r\nThe Courthouse Farmer\u2019s Market has opened for the season, although unconventionally due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Last Saturday over 150 cars attended the drive-through Farmer\u2019s Market at the State Fairgrounds parking lot, causing most vendors to run out of product before the day was over.\r\n\r\nThe drive-through market provides a safe way for buyers to attain fresh, local product while supporting area farmers. Offering produce, meats, baked goods, and more, the Farmer\u2019s Market is an easy way to support small and independent businesses right here at home. Attendees say that despite the new drive-through element, things ran very efficiently.\r\n\r\nParticipating vendors include Taste of Heaven, Bootstraps Farm, Mountain Harmony Farms, Williams Farm, Mountain Sugar and Spice, Azmirth Organic, Sloping Acres Farm, Rainbow Farm, White Oak Farm, West Farm, Mountain Top Farm, Wild Unicorn Farmstead, Blue Moon Bagels, Fresh Flours Small Batch Bakery, and more. If you are looking to get specific items from a vendor, contact them a day or two beforehand so they can be prepared.\r\n\r\nThe Market will return this weekend on Saturday, May 2, starting at 8 a.m. at the fairgrounds.
