The New Harvest Park Farmers Market will host its second annual Honey Fair on Thursday, Sept. 29. Knox County Commissioner Michele Carringer, whose district includes the market, will ring the bell at 3 p.m. to kick off the family-friendly event.
The market, which runs from 3 to 6 p.m. and is open to the public, will be held at the park located at 4775 New Harvest Lane.
"Our honey fair is one of everyone's favorite events of the year,” said Rebecca Saldivar, who oversees the market. “We plan to have several types of local honey for sale, as well as an observation hive, so guests can see live bees at work. We will also have representatives from the TN Beekeepers Association in attendance to do presentations on bees, honey and beekeeping as well as answer any questions. Be sure to join us for all of the 'sweet' fun!"
In addition, the market will feature plenty of local fall veggies, meats and much more.

The farmers market participates in the Fre$h Savings program, which works in conjunction with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. Under it, participants who spend up to $20 per transaction at the market will get a matching amount in tokens to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the market.
