LANGDALE- On Friday, the City of Valley hosted the annual free watermelon slice day at the Langdale Farmers Market as many in the community made their way to enjoy some sweet summer treats along with delicious lemonade. The watermelons were provided by local farmers in the area.
"We have been doing this for at least a decade, and it's always a good thing. It's kind of a tradition, and something we love doing", said Valley Parks and Recreation Director Laurie Blount.
Additionally, local farmers were on hand with a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables. Despite the hot, and humid summer, farmers have had a busy summer at the farmers market.
Farmers come from Camp Hill, LaFayette, Beulah, as well as all over East Alabama, and West Georgia.
The Historic Farmers Market will run through the end of the month and will reconvene in the spring of 2023.
