Farmers market this Saturday from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. sponsored by Berry College Student Enterprises. The details: “There will be several vendors from the local community as well as Berry College Student Enterprises. Products such as fresh produce, baked goods, artwork, beef, flowers, and handmade jewelry will be sold. We’ll also have a kids area with a bounce house, so it’ll be fun for the whole family.” Look for it in the Clara Bowl near the Ford Buildings (hard right at the roundabout)
