Tomorrow (Tuesday) at the Webb City Farmers Market

Tuesday is a great day to come to the Webb City Farmers Market for fresh produce. We expect 15 farms to be at the market with a wide-variety of fresh-picked spring produce, including two farms with high tunnel local tomatoes. The market is open Tuesday (May 17) from 11 to 2 under the pavilion in King Jack Park.

Cooking for a Cause will benefit Childrens’ Haven. The menu includes freshly grilled hotdogs, chili dogs, and smoked sausages, as well as frito chili pie and barbecue beef sandwiches.

Children’s Haven provides a safe temporary home to children ages birth through 17 years whose families are experiencing a crisis such as hospitalization, lack of food, shelter or utilities or other emergency that leaves the parents unable to care for their children. More information is available at

Rob Pommert performs from 11 to 1.

In addition to fresh spring produce, market vendors will have baked goods, jams, jellies, vegetable and herb plants, and eggs for sale tomorrow.

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.
