The Fort Scott Farmers’ Market began a new season of providing fresh produce and other goods to the community with their opening weekend Saturday morning, with vendors selling a number of baked, fresh and homemade items as well as plants.
From May to the final weekend of October, vendors will sell their items at the Skubitz Plaza next to the Fort Scott National Historic Site. Visitors can come make purchases Saturdays, 8 a.m. to noon, or Tuesdays, 4-6 p.m.
Regular sale items include baked breads and other goods, homemade salsa and jams, hot tamales, fresh vegetables and fruits and homemade items. The Bourbon County Garden Club sold plants for the opening weekend but will not be available each week, though other vendors also had plants on hand.
Those interested in participating as a vendor can sign up for a booth with Chet and Linda Bower.
