— Rock Hill's local farmers market will open next week with a new name, city officials announced on Friday.

Old Town Farmers Market – formerly known as Old Town Market – begins its fifth season on May 8 at 115 Caldwell St. Opening night features live music from Arsena Schroeder, who is new to the market this year. Children will be able to plant a flower to take home, and the York County Master Gardeners will be on hand to offer free advice. The first 100 families will get a free market bag.

The market includes seasonal produce, pastured meats, local honey, baked goods, plants, and handmade works by local artisans.

Also, SNAP benefits will now be accepted, in addition to credit cards and cash. SNAP benefits and credit cards can be exchanged for market money tokens at the information table. Some vendors also accept WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program Vouchers.

Market hours are 5 to 8 p.m. Thursdays and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
