GAINESVILLE - The Hall County Farmers Market opens Tuesday, May 6, with an adjustment in its hours this year.

According to its Website,, the market will be open Tuesday afternoons instead of mornings through the summer from 2:30-6:30. Saturday mornings, the market will be open from 7:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. unless everything is sold by noon.

Locally grown vegetables such as lettuce, radishes, onions, greens, along with eggs, honey, baked goods, and plants usually start the season.

Late crops are field peas, butter beans, pumpkins, winter squash, sweet potatoes, and apples.

In addition, $20 worth of free produce will be given away every week June-September.

The farmers market is located just off I-985 near Rabbittown.
