Southeast Farmer’s Market

Right now, the Southeast Farmer’s Market in South Junction is closed but market vendors are still offering a wide variety of products. Many of these vendors create fresh baking, preserves, jam and jellies, wood crafts, crocheting, knitting, sewing, jewelry, clothing and décor items. Others provide direct sales of well-loved product lines like Avon, Watkins, Pink Zebra, Tupperware and more.

We’ll be looking forward to Friday afternoons all summer from 3-8 pm, rain or shine, when the Southeast Farmer’s Market will be set up at the Pine Grove Seniors Center in South Junction. But in the meantime, please visit their Facebookpage for vendors who would be more than happy to make arrangements for you to shop.
