Mount Vernon Farmer’s Market returns May 7th

MOUNT VERNON – Outdoor shopping returns downtown as the
Mount Vernon Farmers Market opens the 2022 season Saturday,
May 7, on the Public Square from 9 a.m. to noon. Vendors will be
placed on both sides of the sidewalks and on the perimeters of the
square.


More than 25 vendors will offer locally grown fruits and vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers. Shoppers
will also find eggs, honey, breads, gluten free baked goods, nut brittle, maple syrup, goat milk soap,
unique jellies and more.


Market Coordinator Marty Trese said, “We’re thrilled to welcome vendors selling eggs, beef, pork, and
lamb this year. And our long time produce vendors have been busy planting and preparing for the
growing season.”


The market enriches the community by providing shoppers the opportunity to interact with those who
grow their food. Local food is fresher, better for the environment, has less waste and plastic packaging,
and improves the local economy.


The market prides itself on encouraging shoppers of all income levels to participate. SNAP incentives are
available as well as Produce Perks, WIC, and programs for seniors. The popular Eat Fresh, Eat Local
program from the Knox County Task Force for Older Adults will begin in June. Stop by the market
information booth for details on these incentive programs.


Parking will be available around the square and in nearby lots.
