Opinion Letters A second farmers market offers local products

Did you know there is a second five-star farmers market in Franklin? It’s held every Wednesday, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside the flea market on Highlands Road.

Organized by Denny and Diane Covher of Cowee Country Home fame, this is an extended food co-op, easy to join, and hosting over a dozen local growers with a wide variety of healthful items from fresh greens, mushrooms, fruits to delicious home baked goodies.

For those who can’t make the Saturday market, need weekday fresh supplements or wish to stop by for lunch (tamales, chili rellenos, mini-pizzas, homemade organic ice cream and real lemonade etc.), this is the outdoor market for you! You may also order items for future pickup or arrange to set up your own table to sell local homemade products, organic encouraged.

Support our local farmers! We can help keep them in business because they keep us healthy! Wednesdays and Saturdays are good days for shopping in Franklin.
