Farmers' market sets 2015 dates and locations

Market members met March 2  to plan the 2015 season. A new location for the Wednesday market, which begins July 8, has been selected and easy to find. The Wednesday market will be set up at the new parking lot, known as Towne Square, located across the street from the Courthouse. Saturday market will open on the Courthouse parking lot on June 27. The senior citizen and WIC voucher program continues this year. Senior citizens and WIC participants should contact Shawnee Douglas, WIC coordinator, at the Health Department at 573-438-2164 to apply for the vouchers.

Update of Market Rules will be posted by the end of March. 

Market members will set up in April or May once the threat of frost has passed with bedding plants and early spring produce (as it becomes available) at the Courthouse on Saturdays. Be watching for them!
