Union Street Farmers Market
August 14 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
The Union Street Farmers Market was held for the first time on April 3,1996. Formed by a dedicated small group of local farmers with the assistance of Ken and Linda McGurn and the City of Gainesville, the original purpose of the market was twofold: 1] to provide local farmers a new venue to sell their produce at retail prices; and 2] to create a weekly family oriented event in the Union Street entertainment district that would reflect the vibrant diversity of this university community.
After eleven great years in the Sun Center the market moved to the downtown Bo Diddley Community Plaza. Having evolved into the preeminent weekly event for this area the market now hosts 60 plus vendors each week.
