This weekend at the market - 10/11 & 12

            It’s a Bright Futures weekend at the market with Cooking for a Cause benefiting Carl Junction’s Bright Futures program.  Plus we have Fall Foos Fotos on Saturday!  The Webb City Farmers Market is open on Friday and Saturday this week.

            On Friday the Webb City Farmers Market is open from 11 to 2 under the pavilion at the Main Street entrance to King Jack Park.

            Friday lunch, served from 11 to 1, is all-you-can-eat chili, plus drink and a brownie for $5 and will benefit Carl Junction’s Bright Futures program.   William Adkins will perform Friday.

In addition to tables loaded with fresh local produce, there will be honey, jams and jellies (including this season’s apple butter), farm fresh eggs, baked goods, beef, chicken, lamb, pork, freshly roasted coffee beans, energy bars and mums.  The Joplin Business Women will sell Rada utensils as a fundraiser for their MSSU scholarship program.  

            On Saturday, the market is open from 9 to noon under the pavilion.  Breakfast benefits the Carl Junction Bright Futures program and features pancakes, ham, and farm fresh eggs cooked to order.  John Henry & Friends, a great young bluegrass/folk group from Fayetteville, Arkansas, take the market stage on Saturday.  On Saturday we expect local produce, honey, baked goods, energy bars, farm fresh eggs, bbq ribs, tamales and mums.  

            On Saturday, Bob Foos (who is honored in the Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame) will take fall portraits in a setting of market mums and pumpkins.  Photo package prices are:  8 wallets with two 4x5s - $15; 8 wallets with one 5x7 - $15; Either of the previous plus an 8x10 - $20;  Extras:   two 4x5s - $6; 4 wallets - $6; 5x7 - $6; 8 wallets - $8; 8x10 - $8.  Bob calls this annual event “Photos for a Cause” because he donates all profits to the market’s music program.
