After regular and heavy rains recently, the sun appeared Saturday in time for the first Farmers’ Market event of the season.
For the grand opening, the Fort Scott Gardening Club and other plant nurseries and individuals sold a number of plants. Homemade items as well as fresh vegetables and baked goods were also sold.
Starting in July, the first Saturday will feature a free children’s activity. A hot breakfast will also be on hand frequently.
The Farmers’ Market will be located at the Skubitz Plaza each Saturday, 8 a.m. through noon, and Tuesday afternoons, from 4 to 6 p.m. The market will continue each weekend through October.
