MOUNTAIN CITY — May 7th was the opening day for the Johnson County Farmers Market located in Mountain City at the downtown courthouse parking lot. The market is open for business every Saturday from 9:00am- 12:00pm from May through October.

The market features vendors with items such as fresh eggs, breads and other baked goods, fresh fruit and veggies, greens of all types, honey, jellies and jams, plants, homemade soaps, wood worked items, jewelry and art work from differing genres.

Each season brings on new themes at the market such as Springing into the Market in May, Kids at the Market in June, July is blueberry month, August equals tomatoes, September is the month for peppers and October is the fall harvest month. In addition to the wonderful products that can be found at the market, there are also old and new friends just waiting to greet you.

The Johnson County Farmers Market is also participating in the Fresh Savings Program for those using Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefit cards. This program works by giving you $10 in tokens to spend on fresh fruit and vegetables for every $10 you spend through SNAP, doubling your groceries.
