The Johns Creek Farmers Market, with its locally grown fruits and vegetables, homemade foods, music and kids' activities returns for the summer starting May 31 at Newtown Park.

Open Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through Sept. 6, the Farmers Market promises more than 25 vendors.

"It's an excellent way to have access to locally grown, fresh, produce," said Recreation Manager Kirk Franz. "Many of our vendors sell produce that is certified organic, certified naturally grown, or sustainably grown. It's exciting to be able to buy vegetables from a farmer who just made the trip from his farm."

In addition to vegetables and fruits, the Johns Creek Farmers Market will feature a variety of craft foods, such as all-natural cheeses, honey, homemade jams and jellies, fresh breads, pastries and pastas. On the first and third Saturdays, chefs will demonstrate cooking techniques for adults as well as cooking classes for kids.

To round out the shopping experience, musicians perform favorite tunes, and special treats and entertainment make the trip fun for kids.
