Local farmer’s market restarts after Hurricane Michael


LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WMBB) — Saturday, local artisans, craftspeople and farmers gathered at Sharon Sheffield Park in Lynn Haven to participate in the city’s farmer’s market.

This was the second date of a recurring farmer’s market where vendors set up to sell everything from homemade honey, to olive oil to jewelry.

The farmer’s market takes place on alternation Thursdays and Saturdays through September 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Lynn Haven officials said they are excited to bring back this event after having to put it on hold for a few years due to Hurricane Michael.

“We are restarting the farmer’s market program. We had it a couple of years ago but then the hurricane happened and we had to stop,” said Evgeniya Stetsenko, City of Lynn Haven marketing and communications coordinator. “But we are trying to bring it back and I think this is a great time for that. Lynn Haven is coming up and we’re having more and more events returning.”

Officials said they are still accepting applications for local vendors who would like to participate.
