Rain didn’t stop Choo-Choo Market spirit

Tents and rain jackets were premium items as vendors provided cover for buyers making purchases in the rain.

With a steady drip of rain Saturday morning, more vendors turned out to be part of the second Choo-Choo Farmers Market event.

With twice the number of vendors as was seen at the first event, vendors set up with everything from vegetables and jellies to baked goods and homemade body scrubs.

Chilton County peaches found their way to the market with several local growers sharing tomatoes, corn, peppers, eggplants and other vegetables.

An array of jellies and jams as well as local honey and homemade pickles made the day a delight for many buyers.

With a table of baked goods, the day rounded out a new look at some old-time favorites.

Organizers are continuing to work on the best way to present the local farmers’ market events at Jennings Park.

More dates are being planned for such events and others around the city as part of the Brewton Reborn project for the city of Brewton.
