“A couple of the business owners in the Town Center CRA… petitioned businesses and people visiting businesses in the CRA,” he said. They have more than 900 petitions showing support."

“I think it’s a great idea,” Councilman Jim Foreman said. “It fits.”

Holt, who has been selling homemade breads through his wife's company Made By Amy at the Seaside Farmer's Market for the past three years, told The Log that the farmer's market would feature a variety of fresh produce, foods, arts and crafts, as well as organic eggs, chickens and other meats down the road. He said the market would also feature fresh dairy products from Ocheesee Creamery, a third-generation farm in Calhoun County.

"We want to have different ethnic foods for people to try," he said.

With a proposed opening of April 1, there is still some legal work to take care of, but if all goes according to plan, Holt said he is ready to go.

"It's not only a farmer's market," he said. "What happens is that it turns into a meeting place for the community."
