With all this new activity taking place in our own backyard, here’s a run-down of all the regularly-scheduled Sanford events you can - and should - add to your list of community outings.


Saturday Farmers Market & Bazaar Every Saturday from 10am - 3pm, meet in Magnolia Square in historic downtown for fresh produce, baked goods, flowers, honey, and more! Follow them on Facebook @sanfordflfarmersmarket for scintillating vendor photos and weekly updates.
