The Seymour Farmer’s Market will return for the 2012 season next month.

The market will be open from 7 to 11 a.m. every Saturday from June 2 through Oct. 13 in the parking lot of the First Baptist Church on Chapman Hwy.

Organizers invite residents to come support local farmers and enjoy some fresh, home grown, fruits and vegetables.

This year the market has a new Web site, www.seymourfarmersmarket.org, that features a calendar of special events at the market.

Local farmers and gardeners are invited to become part of the Seymour Farmer’s Market.

Agricultural products which participants produce or grow, such as fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey, plants, cut flowers or herbs are all welcome. Small businesses making agricultural products such as jellies, baked goods, and hot sauces must bring a copy of their health inspection papers and license.

All venders should bring their own table, bags and change. The charge to sell at the market is $3 a week or $25 for the season. These fees are used to cover operational expenses.

During September and October local crafters can join the market to sell their handmade creations. Area crafters are asked to contact organizers in advance about eligibility for the fall season. Crafter who sell only for the fall season can pay either $3 a week or $10 for the fall.
