Kicking off their 10th anniversary season, and 5th since reorganizing in 2015, Neosho Farmers Market is expanding to meet the demands of a growing community and expanding consumer base.
With this season’s Opening Day set on May 4th the producers-only market is currently seeking quality growers of farm-raised produce and meats, kitchen-fresh foods, as well as producers of other handmade garden, kitchen, or food-related goods.
Previous market experience is a plus, but market organizers will also work with candidates with the right combination of skills, vision, and personality.
Basic eligibility requirements include growing/producing their own goods in Newton County, Missouri or those immediately adjacent (Jasper, Lawrence, Barry, McDonald Counties in SW Missouri, Ottawa County in NE Oklahoma, or Cherokee County in SE Kansas), and in certain cases, meeting specific health and/or food safety standards.
Those interested in learning more about becoming part of the Neosho Farmers Market are encouraged to visit their website, NeoshoFarmersMarket.com and look for the ‘Become a Vendor’ link.
