Today at the market

The Webb City Winter Farmers Market welcomes LOMAH Farms to the market on Friday. LOMAH (Land of Milk and Honey) produces cheese from the milk of their Jersey cattle. The cattle are grass-fed on their 400 acre farm near Wyandotte, Oklahoma, and watered from an artesian spring. On Friday, they will have waxed wheels of Monterey Jack, Cheddar Cheese curds, Havarti, and Neu Chatel soft cheese.
The market will be open from 11 to 2 under the market pavilion at the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park. Jack and Lee Ann Sours will play traditional music from 11 to 1.

The market ranchers will have pork, beef, chicken, lamb, buffalo, and elk. Fairhaven will have jams, jellies, and fresh pecan meats. Amos Apiaries will have quarts of local raw honey for sale. In celebration of the weather, Black Forest House will have spring flower basket cookies in addition to a large selection of their usual products. Freda Mae’s is adding whoopee pies and buttery rolls to her baked goods selection. Small Cottage Roasters will have freshly roasted coffee beans in light, medium and dark roasts.

Soup Du Jour by Jimmi’s will serve a bowl of Greek Potato soup or Chicken with Homemade Dill Noodles Soup with bread for $4. The soups will also be available for take home by the jar.

The Winter Market is open from 11 to 2 on the first and third Friday of each month through April.

Selection and sales begin when the bell rings at opening. The market is located at the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park under the market pavilion. It’s open rain or shine, but not ice or sleet.
