“We’ve been having another successful farmers market season in West Ashley and heard from both citizens and farmers that there was interest in continuing the market through the fall,” said Harrison Chapman, the West Ashley Farmers Market Manager. “As the days get shorter, the Sunday afternoon hours will allow the market to stay open longer and give residents an opportunity to come buy fresh local produce and groceries for the week.”
Artisan & Crafter vendors are invited to apply to participate in the Sunday, November 19 market on a space-available basis. Applications will be posted on the farmers market website (http://www.charlestonfarmersmarket.com/westashley/) October 18.
