Valdosta, Georgia - May 7, 2007
For the first time, the city of Valdosta hosted Downtown Valdosta Farm Days.
Seventeen north Florida and south Georgia vendors set-up shop by the old courthouse lawn.
They were selling everything from beef of grass fed cattle to cheese from Thomasville and organic produce from Adel.
The city of Valdosta says it's free for area farmers to participate and there's room for more.
"We really wanted the farmers to come and sell stuff directly.," says Amanda Peacock, a Valdosta Farm Days coordinator. "So, there's no second hand. Nobody's buying and reselling and stuff like that. It's just a place for them to come set-up and sell their stuff."
Valdosta's famer's market runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
And It will be offered every first and third Saturday through the month of September.
