‘Special Day was fantastic’







On Saturday, Blount County farmers gathered at the Blount County-Oneonta Agri-Business Center for the annual Special Day at the Farmers Market. ‘I believe the Special Day was fantastic,’ said Blount County-Oneonta Agri-Business Center executive director Chase Moore.‘We had a wonderful turnout and I can't thank the farmers enough for everything they do. All of their hard work growing and selling produce, we wouldn't have food to eat or clothes to wear without them.’ Moore thanked businesses who donated items for door prizes, the Extension Office for giving out how-to-can literature, Coca Cola for donating drinks, and WCRL for broadcasting live. Open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Farmers Market will continue through the last Saturday in October. – Nicole Singleton
