will launch its ninth season on April 14 at a new venue–in the parking area in front of the courthouse in downtown Watkinsville.

The Board of Directors of the Market made the move to increase exposure for the market and its vendors.

Vendors will set up stalls in two rows in front of the courthouse and down the side street to the Board of Elections and Registration office, depending on demand. The market will open at 8 a.m. and run until 1 p.m. each Saturday until late fall.

Board member and Market President and Market Manager worked out details with the county to move the market to the more prominent space.

The market will have promotional T-shirts and shopping bags available this year.

And the market's youngest vendor, Lexi, 7, has added squirrel feeders to her product line, which also includes flowers, lemonade, hot chocolate and bird houses.
