National Farmers Market Week

August 7, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Farmer's market

National Farmers Market Week is coming up August 1-7, 2021. On Wednesday, August 4, and Saturday, August 7, the Athens Farmers Market will be open from 9 a.m.-noon outside the Market on State (1002 E. State Street). In addition to the weekly food and art vendors, the market will host live music from local musicians, food demonstrations and samples, and more. Ohio University’s Rufus will be making an appearance at the Wednesday market at 10 a.m., and on Saturday, Community Food Initiative’s Donation Station will host a 50/50 raffle. There will also be special activities for kids, including favors from Hopewell Health Centers, a chalk mural on Wednesday and a coloring station to make thank you cards for farmers on Saturday.

The Athens Farmers Market has become an increasingly vital part of the Athens community since 1972. The market showcases our region’s robust local food and art scenes while also providing a social atmosphere for customers to linger to talk with friends, neighbors, and farmers. The Market Cafe, a staple in creating the market’s lively environment, will officially reopen on August 7. Come to the market this August during National Farmers Market Week to experience the regional flavor of Athens and shop with cash, credit or a SNAP/EBT card.
