Celebrating the 25th year of operation for the South Boston Farmers Market, many area residents turned out Saturday morning for the official grand opening where shoppers found homegrown tomatoes, string beans, squash, cucumbers, onions, cabbage, beets, new potatoes, baked goods, vegetable plants and flowers. 

The Bluegrass Five provided live entertainment from 9 to 10 a.m., and the Virginia Cooperative Extension along with local Master Gardeners offered a help desk and food demonstrations.

Those attending enjoyed refreshments, music and many home grown and homemade goodies.

Ray Satterfield, president of the Farmers Market, said he was very pleased with Saturday’s grand opening and 25th anniversary celebration. “It was an excellent turnout,” he said of the 250 people who attended.
