Appomattox Farmers Market organizers

Shown are Appomattox Farmers Market organizers Laura Briceland and Lindsey Bender.

The Appomattox Farmers Market has opened for the season, complete with local farmers, vendors and food trucks.

Cousins Laura Briceland and Lindsey Bender decided a farmers market in Appomattox would benefit everyone and worked together to get it started.

“It was something that, we felt like, Appomattox needed, especially local farmers,” Briceland said.

The market is open Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. until noon in Iceland’s back lot.
