Last Saturday’s April Market Days in Willis Park featured a variety of items ranging from jewelry, to plants and ferns, to vegetables to children’s books.

The City of Bainbridge sponsors Market Day the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Willis Park.

Sandra McComb and India Jackson of Bainbridge had a colorful display of their hand-made earring sets.

Brandy Handrix of Cairo had a display of various types of colorful plants and ferns for sale.

Kendall Howard of Bainbridge had a hydroponic gardening display. Standing by a trellis where the plants are nurtured and grow, he talked about how hydroponic plants grow and mature faster, yielding an earlier harvest of vegetable, herbal and flower crops.

“Conventional farming is limited to growing seasons, while hydroponic growing can even be done indoors throughout the year,” he explained.

Bainbridge author Patsy M. Henry had copies of her children’s book “My Hare Line” on sale and display. To make the display realistic she had several live rabbits on display.
