Hello from the Bath County Farmers Market!

The opening market on June 6th was a tremendous success for vendors and customers! Vendor sales topped last year’s opening market! Local growers brought an abundance of produce–if it is inseason and ripe it was at the market! Strawberries! Greens! Culinary Herbs! And more! Pies, cakes, chessbars, cookies, muffins, bread, rolls and other baked treats overflowed from the tables. The warm smell of hot pork BBQ filled the air. Live music performed by the Poison Bottom Boys had everyone tapping their toes.

Market magic will continue this week with the best of locally grown produce, baked goods, craft and music!
