Fairfield Farmers Market opens

Fairfield Farmer's Market kicked off Saturday in Howard Park

Hundreds of Jefferson County residents stocked up on fresh items at the Fairfield Farmers Market Saturday.

Around 30 local vendors had tables set up for the marketâ??s opening day, selling various goods such as locally grown produce, baked goods, coffee, herbs and spices. Each vendor pays $7, which helps fund farmerâ??s market promotions, and they get to keep the rest of their profits. Claude Nicholson sold out of most of his radishes, dill weed and spinach before noon.

â??It's all fresh,â?? Nicholson, a vendor of Sharonâ??s Produce said. â??This was all picked last night so it comes in here, and it's right out of the garden.â??

Nicholson also sold out of his homemade granola bars and fresh parley Saturday afternoon. People in the community can come out to the Fairfield Farmerâ??s Market in Howard Park every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. until November.
