Collierville Farmers Market Thursdays and Saturdays

Posted By on Fri, Aug 28, 2009 at 10:41 AM

Farmer Carl Wayne Hardeman worked for five years to get the Collierville Farmers Market off the ground. It opened July 2nd, and there's now a waiting list for the 14 vendor spots.

The market, held just off the town square is open Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Saturday's hours will change in two weeks. The market will open later, at 9:30 a.m. in effort to lure more customers. According to Bridget Adams-Ely, a spokesperson for the market, Thursday's market draws about 1,500, while Saturday's draws between 800-900.

Vendors change from week to week, depending on who's available. There's a ton of organic produce and locally sourced honey.

The market will be open through October.
