“Summer is definitely the biggest time of the year,” Assistant Manager Margaret Krome-Lukens said.
Market Manager Erin Jobe said farmers make the majority of their income during the peak season, which is from April until October. During that time, the market is open from 7 a.m. until noon on Saturdays.
Krome-Lukens said the Wednesday market, which is only available during the peak season, will start on April 8 and last from 3 to 6 p.m.
To celebrate the beginning of the Wednesday market, there will be food trucks from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on April 8, and the market will offer live music and beer sales.
During the peak summer season, vendors will provide more choices of vegetables, fruits and crops than during the winter season, Jobe said.
Krome-Lukens said although a larger variety of food is available in the summer, different seasons grow different vegetables and crops.
“There is no single time of the year when you can get every single thing that grows in Carolina,” she said.
As the market did in previous years, it is planning various events in April for residents and students, Jobe said.
