A revived urban farmers market in Winston-Salem is back for a second season. 

The Liberty Street Market opened in 2014 but it took a community-wide effort last year to realize the vision of a reliable and affordable food resource for the location off of U.S. 52. It is considered a food desert with few commercial markets in the area.

The accent is on local meat and produce. Priority is given to farmers within a five-mile radius of the market, but that hasn't kept it from growing. City officials say there are almost twice as many vendors compared to last year. 

The market runs on the first and third Fridays of the month and SNAP/EBT is accepted.
