Fort Scott, KS Love fresh, home-grown vegetables? Have you come out to Fort Scott’s Farmer’s Market? The FS Famer’s Market ramped up for the first time this year in May, according to their Facebook page. Farmer’s Markets are becoming increasingly popular across the country, for many reasons. Locally grown products and supporting local farmers and business tops the list.
The FS Farmer’s Market is farmer organized and run and designed for a place local famer’s can come together to create a marketplace for local foods. For the first year, the operation is going well. I would love to see more vendors filling up the whole Skubitz Plaza every Saturday morning and Tuesday evening.
Last Saturday, there were even free muffins being given away. Of course, I cannot promise they will be there every time the market is open, but I will say you missed out if you weren’t able to try them! The mission of the Farmer’s Market is to provide a safe friendly venue for the sale of the freshest local produce possible for the citizens of Fort Scott Kansas, with an emphasis on building a strong community.
I would say they are well on their way, but they can’t do it alone! I hope you are able to come out and support the hard working folks who are making this possible. If you want the latest information on what is going on with the market, you can check out their Facebook page by clicking here. I’m sure they are always looking for more vendors.
