Farmers Market update

-A A +A

Event continues Saturday

By The Staff

This coming Saturday, March 21, the Williston Farmers Market welcomes a great local smoker, George Cockill of “Do Right Cooking”. George will have his cooker on hand starting first thing Saturday morning and will be finishing some great Boston Butts and maybe a few racks of his famous ribs. Plates and sandwiches will be on sale during lunch at the Lions snack stand. George would be pleased to let you sample his variety and have you consider letting him smoke meats for your next family gathering, club activity or fundraising event. If you are interested in having something smoked on Saturday while the cooker is fired up, please call George and make sure he saves you a spot on the grill. His number is 352-304-1438.

Harmony will be giving away free “Emergen C” vitamin drinks, while supplies last. Be sure to stop by their produce stand for a bottle. Harmony is still accepting applications for food vouchers. This was our first week of distributing vouchers for those in need. We are looking for flea market and farmers market vendors. We would like to thank Glen Robinson for his demonstrations on air layering citrus trees and some flowering bushes.

The Market is hosted at the Williston Lions Club House every Saturday, rain or shine, at 401 S.E. 6th Ave. (at Southeast 4th Street) in Williston from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information on the Levy County Farmer Market call Cindy at 486-6229.
