Southern Village will open its farmers market from 3:30-6:30 p.m. May 3. Held each Thursday in the center of Market Street adjacent to the Village Green, the market will enter its ninth season in Chapel Hill. The market will run through Oct. 25.
In addition to KidsZone, the Southern Village Farmers Market will have several other features that make it more than just a farmers market. It also will have fresh seafood each week, a master gardener table and farmers donating unsold or excess produce that the public can donate as well to feed those in need locally.
