Open Air: Poplar Head Farmers’ Market

A new farmers market in Dothan, Alabama -- the Poplar Head Farmers’ Market -- will open for the first time on Saturday, June 6, from 8 a.m. to noon.

The open air market will feature fresh, locally-grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, prepared foods and specialty items on Saturday mornings in June and July. Farmers and artists within 50 miles of Dothan may apply to be vendors, as well as Georgia and Florida farmers living within 25 miles of the Alabama line. Spaces will be rotated to maintain a ratio of 70 percent farmers to 30 percent artists.

Located at 126 Museum Ave. in downtown Dothan, the market is situated next to the Wiregrass Museum of Art and Poplar Head Park.
