[ARCHIVED] Farmers’ Market season extended to Dec. 5

The Danville Farmers’ Market season has been extended to Dec. 5, allowing for the market to run for an additional month as well as continue its operation through the rest of October.


With the cancellation of the large fall shows, this extension will allow the craft vendors to return and sell their goods at the market. Crafters are returning to the market on Saturday, Nov. 7.


During this extension of the Farmers’ Market season, the hours of operation will remain the same: 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. The market will be closed on Thanksgiving weekend.  


Kenny Porzio, market manager, weighed in on the season extension in a River City TV interview, noting, “We looked at a lot of different options of what the Farmers’ Market could do, and we ultimately decided to extend the season. Usually, the Farmers’ Market season will end the last weekend of October. Extending the season gives us about another month of operation so the public can purchase items for the holidays as well as items that are available during the usual Farmers’ Market season.” 


Visitors can expect to see late-season produce at the market through the rest of October and into the extended season — as well as items such as jams, jellies, pickles, facemasks, soaps, and baked goods.
