The 2014 season of the Cartersville Farmers Market will kick off on Wednesday. 

The market will be held in the Founder's Oak parking lot, which is located across the street from Cartersville City Hall. The market will run each Wednesday and Saturday from June 4 to Sept. 27. 

Market hours are from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays and from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. 

The market will feature a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams and jellies, local honey, fresh flowers, crafts and much more items.   

A total of 40 farmers are slated to participate in this year's market, according to Catherine Woods, special events coordinator with the Cartersville Downtown Development Authority. 

"We are very excited about having such a large group of farmers this year," she added. "A bigger market only makes for a better market."

For the 2014 season, the Cartersville Downtown Development Authority wants to see more community turn out for the markets, so they plan to add some form of entertainment at least once a month to accompany the market sessions. 

For example, Woods said the DDA plans to add kid's activities for the market scheduled for June 21 and Etowah Valley Yoga will visit on June 28 to lead a yoga class. On July 19, the yoga group will return to hold a Qigong class. 

Furthermore, the 2014 Tomato Festival is expected to return on Saturday, July 26.
