     Local growers and farmers from Webster Parish have sold their bounty at the Farm's Farmers Market since their opening day May 5th.  
     While the heat and the lack of rain has affected their yield, they've still managed to provide us with some of the best and tastiest veggies. Fresh farm eggs and Marie's homemade Tamales were always the first to sell out.
     The Farm added a special section for 'fleas and tiques' this year and we enjoyed a variety of vendors selling a wide variety of goods from yard sale items. to hand painted signs, crafted vintage dish 'flowers', handmade bows, bands, jewelry and handpainted decorative items for the home. 4Hers have also participated in selling their crops while other young entrepreneurs have used the Farmers Market as a test market for new products.
     We are so fortunate to have locally grown vegetables instead of produce shipped in from Arkansas and Texas. It's been a great market year and we hope everyone will make their last market day, their best market day.
     Farmers Market is open from 7am-12N.  June 30th is their last day.  Come Bye! 419 East Union in the red pavilion.
