We recently shared some of Cora Bett’s Savannah Summertime Favorites here on our blog. We’re diving into more about those over the next few weeks. And, nothing says Saturday in Savannah quite like a morning stroll through Forsyth Farmers’ Market. Our farmers’ market boasts numerous local grown, harvested and produced, products and more. Every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m, you can find local farmers and volunteers set up fruit and vegetable stands to sell their fresh, locally grown organic goods at the south end of Forsyth Park.
Staple items like seasonal produce, jams, jellies, greens, farm fresh eggs and artisan cheeses are aplenty. But items like homemade popsicles, various grass-fed meats, locally roasted coffee and healthy snacks are also on the menu.
Low Branch Farm offers decorative/Edible Flower and Culinary Herb Farm. As a small scale flower an herb farm, their goal is to supply the community with consciously grown herbs and flowers to add color and taste to meals and homes. They also build custom planter boxes for inside the home or outside on the patio, full of culinary herbs, decorative or edible flowers.
