Suwanee requests farmers market vendor applications

SUWANEE -- Entering its ninth year, the Suwanee Farmers Market is looking for vendor applications for its popular Tuesday and Saturday showcase.

City officials have said the city typically receives more applications than can be accommodated by available space. But farmers who can provide fresh produce, jams, breads, honey, meat products, eggs and flowers are invited to apply to participate in the 2013 season.

Applications are due by March 18, the same date the Suwanee Farmers Market annual meeting will be held. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Suwanee City Hall, 330 Town Center Ave.

Some stipulations about the market include that all products sold must by grown or made by the applicant, and vendors who sell products requiring state licenses must have current licenses issued by the appropriate agencies.

The 2013 Suwanee Farmers Market will be open at Town Center Park from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays, May 4 through Oct. 5, and from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays, May 7 through Aug. 6.
