Oconee Farmers Market will launch its 11th season with the opening of the Saturday market on April 5 and the Tuesday evening market on May 13. The Saturday market will once again be in front of the courthouse in downtown Watkinsville. The Tuesday evening market will be at Watkinsville First Christian Church at the corner of Simonton Bridge Road and Main Street, also in downtown Watkinsville. Market Manager Cindy Pritchard announced the launch dates at a meeting of market vendors on Thursday evening at the library in Watkinsville. Vendors responded enthusiastically, with several saying they would be ready to put up their tents and display their wares even earlier. For details of the market history and the 2014 season, go to Oconee County Observations.
