Each Saturday the Forsyth Farmers’ Market opens from 9 a.m.–1 p.m., rain or shine, at the South End of Forsyth Park in Historic Downtown Savannah. A variety of vendors offer their produce and products to residents and visitors alike. The Forsyth Farmers’ Market vendors offer a variety of local goods including seasonal produce, eggs, honey, pastured meat, bread, cheese, mushrooms, fresh herbs, vegetable sauces, preserves, coffee beans, heirloom seeds and potted plants. From the very beginning, the FFM has focused on food and food issues which is why it is a producer-only market (meaning all vendors have to be producing at least 75 percent of the products they sell) and allows only food and plant vendors.

He is working around all dietary restrictions with a 48-hour notice requested.
