Friday at the Market

The Webb City Farmers Market is open Friday (April 29) from 11 to 2 under the pavilion in King Jack Park.

The Granny Chicks from Neosho will perform from 11 to 1. Lunch is all-you-can-eat ham and beans, plus corn bread, cake and drink for $6.

Farmers will have spring crops like green onions, radishes, spinach, swiss chard, lettuce, boc choy, Asian mustard greens, pea tops, and asparagus,. We’ll be loaded with baked goods, eggs, sprouts, all-natural pork, beef, lamb, chicken, bison and elk, herb plants, vegetable plants, flower boxes, plus fruit smoothies, milk, jams and jellies.

Two local organizations will have fundraisers at the market Friday: The Freedom Shamrocks football and cheer team will sell English ivy and vinca plants. The team is part of the Southwest Missouri Freelance League and serves 13 to 18-year-olds. The Vipers traveling baseball team will sell chances on a handmade quilt featuring a Route 66 theme. Both will be in the center of the pavilion.

The Webb City Farmers Market is a producer-only market, which means that customers buy produce directly from the grower, meat from the rancher, and bread from the baker. The market is open rain or shine under the pavilion at the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park. Sales and setbacks begin at 11. For information, call 417 483-8139.
