On June 1, 2019, the Spring Hill Farmers Market welcomed local produce and food shoppers at the Towne Square Mall parking lot. It has the same hours and many of the same vendors as was offered at the Hernando County Farmers Market in the Rural King parking lot, which was recently closed. Two of the organizers of the Hernando County Farmers Market now run the Spring Hill Farmers Market, Tammy Patrick, and Desiree Canora. The market has something for everyone. Some of the vendors include Beasley Farm, Growin’ Crazy Acres, and Sierra Rose Reclaimed Wood Sign Company. The market also has vendors selling quilts, plants, fresh honey, jewelry, hand scrubs, animal products, candles, and many other items. You can check out the market every Saturday all year long from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M.
The move from Rural King to Towne Square Mall isn’t the first for farmers market organizers. They started in Brooksville almost eight years ago and later decided to move to Spring Hill where they would attract more traffic.
