New Harvest Park Farmers Market kicks off 2013 season

It’s farmers market season in Knox County! The New Harvest Park Farmers Market kicks off its 2013 season this Thursday, April 11 from 3 to 6 p.m. at 4775 New Harvest Lane, just past the Target shopping center on Washington Pike. This is the first farmers market to open in Knox County, and will take place at New Harvest Park every Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. through November.

At 3 p.m., Knox County Commission Chairman Tony Norman will ring the bell to kick-off the market. Heather Kyle from the UT-Ag Extension Office will cook up sauteed asparagus with fresh herbs in a cooking demo at 3:30 p.m., while Neal Denton and David Vandergriff host a gardening workshop at 4 p.m. 

Along with local farmers and crafters, the New Harvest Park Farmers Market is proud to announce a new addition to this year’s market: food trucks! All food trucks participating in the market use local produce, which often comes from the same vendors selling at the farmers market.

Vendors confirmed for this Thursday’s market are:
• Bob Due's Terraced Gardens
Che's Cupcakes
• Clear Springs Farm
• Cruz Farm
• Erin's Meadow Herb Garden
• Gail's Soaps
• Gregory's Greenhouse
Halford's Farm
• Josh Ray
• Lackey Candle Company
• Melanie Wheeler
• Melissa Spradlin
• Mitchell Family Farm
• Nicely's Goat Milk Soap and More
Sherie's Salsa
• Tootsie Truck
VG's Bakery

Please note the majority of vendors only accept cash. Last year, in an effort to make farmers market products available to more people in the community, Knox County began accepting SNAP electronic benefit cards at the market.
