Farmers Market in new location

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Dear Editor,

The Farmers Market will be moved for the year 2012 to the Sears parking lot at Westview Plaza. Harold Pearson will be sponsoring us this year. This location will give us better exposure to the amount of traffic in the area.

Many gardeners and farmers have already planned their gardens in preparation for the market.

The market is not just for growers, but open to baked goods such as bread, cookies, cakes, rolls and fruit pies.

No cream pies or baked goods that will require refrigeration will be allowed. Inspected meat vendors must be approved and provide refrigeration.

Items offered for sale must be home-grown produce or home-baked products or home made crafts. Last year, we had up to 20 different vendors selling various kinds of fruits, vegetables, jam, honey and fall products including straw bales, pumpkins, decorative gourds and corn stalks.

We will be open Saturday July 7 at 8 a.m. and close at noon or when the produce is sold out. For more information, call Deb Petty at (308) 345-6366.


Deb Petty,

McCook Farmers

Market Manager
