The Greensboro Borough Farmers Market will kick off a new season beginning this Saturday.

A variety of vendors and activities will be waiting when the event gets under way at 9 a.m. at Gazebo Park in Greensboro. The market will run until 1 p.m.

This year, the market is excited to announce its participation in The Buy Local program, which will offer $5 Buy Local Bucks to each person who purchases the buy local card and is one of the first 20 visitors presenting it each Saturday at the farmers market.

The Flenniken Memorial Library also will be at the market the first Saturday of each month for a story and activity hour for all children from 11 to 11:45 a.m.

In addition to these two new programs, The Lardin House will be serving up delicious cuisine and La Weda Y La Mexicana will be there with some festive Mexican food.

Clark’s Nursery will be in attendance each week and will also be doing a Mother’s Day plant and potting exercise the Saturday before Mother’s Day.

The market is pleased to welcome back each week, Harden’s Family Farm, Brian’s Tomato’s, Mapletown High School Green House and Plum Run Winery. Black Cat Valley Farm will be providing customers with jams and jellies; Willow Tree Farms will offer homemade baked goods and desserts; and Harley Gapenwill offer farm-fed meats.

The market runs each Saturday through Oct. 5. Organizers are looking forward to a great summer and hope to continue adding new vendors and entertainment each week.
