Calling for meal vendors

The Webb City Farmers Market is accepting proposals for meal vendors.

The Friday lunch at the market, served between 11 and 1, is a set menu, changing weekly. Typically between 70 and 100 meals are served each week. The meal cost last year was $6 and usually included the entrée, two sides, dessert and drink.

The Saturday breakfast is served from 9 to 11 and typically cost $5 or less, including drink. In 2008, 40 to 50 customers ate breakfast. It is anticipated that the Saturday market will draw more customers in 2009.

The market is open from May through October.

Persons interested in submitting a proposal for the 2009 season should contact Eileen Nichols at 673-5866. Proposals will be accepted until February 15.
