Farmers Market hosts ‘Special Day’



Keith Hamby, executive director of the Blount County-Oneonta Agri-Business Center, gives Ann Tawbush a basket of tomatoes donated by Jerry Gibbs Farms on Saturday, July 14, at the Blount County Farmers Market “Special Day.” The once-a-year event gives farmers and customers an incentive to go to the market. Both parties submit their names in a drawing for a chance to win prizes. Farmers donated produce to be given away to customers, and some of the lucky farmers received gifts from sponsors such as Blount County Farmer’s Co-op, Southern States, and Whitley’s Feed and Farm Supply.
