LaGRANGE — The University of Georgia’s Troup County Extension Office is slated to host the the 59th Annual Harvest Festival on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon in the LaGrange Mall parking lot.

The event is free and open to the public.

The Market on Jefferson will also be moved to the mall parking lot Saturday to merge with the festival.

A wide variety of vendors are scheduled to sell fresh produce, crafts, breads, soaps and more. All of the vendors are from the local community and represent the rich diversity of Troup County, according to Ben Wheeler, an organizer of the Market on Jefferson.
