Farmers Market celebrates grand opening June 16
The Concho Valley Farmers Market will have one of its biggest arrays of produce when it celebrates its annual grand opening from 7 a.m. until noon Saturday, June 16.
The vendors, who come from a 75-mile radius around San Angelo, will be offering locally grown and seasonal fruits, vegetables and plants under the Farmers Market Pavilion at 609 S. Oakes St., across from Fort Concho.
The Farmers Market has been conducting its thrice-weekly sales on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays since May 8. The selection will include potatoes, green beans, sweet peas, squash and zucchini, peppers, corn, greens (including lettuce, spinach and collards), radishes, shelled pecans, indoor and outdoor plants, onions, herbs such as basil, thyme, cilantro, parsley and rosemary, cheeses and more.
The market’s growers typically charge customers $1 for a bundle or a bowl of produce.
At the June 16 grand opening, there will be live music, door prizes of free produce and homemade goodies offered every few minutes, and free coffee and lemonade.
The market will begin selling melons in July.
Interested farmers can join the market for $15 or $20, which allows them to set up a stand for $5 or $10 at each sale. The market will hold its sales until the first fall freeze.
