The Mainstreet Statesboro Farmers Market – Tuesday evening edition – made its debut with threatening weather, but lots of happy customers. The market will be held in the Sea Island Bank parking lot, the same location as its Saturday market, on Tuesday evenings from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., focusing on meats and produce from local farmers. Expanding to twice a week will enable the market to reach a new demographic of people who live and work downtown, said Debra W. Chester, market manager for the Farmers Market.
